Those Darlins

There’s a lot happening in San Francisco tonight. See for yourself. Choosing a show to go to won’t be an easy decision, but if you’re looking for some primitive rock and roll, you want to be at The Chapel.

Riding high on the September release of their third studio album, Blur the LineThose Darlins from Nashville are headlining the Valencia St. music house with their attitude-drenched, guitar-driven rock. The band found a way to tighten up and deepen their songwriting style for its latest offering, allowing it to dig into who they are and where they come from without losing the sneering disposition that fuels the project.

Joining Those Darlins will be Foxygen drummer Shaun Fleming, who has been operating under the guise of his Diane Coffee moniker. With a modern fusion of psychedelic soul, gospel and doo-wop, he released his debut effort, My Friend Fish, at the end of October via Western Vinyl, capturing his transition from the suburbs of LA to Brooklyn in one of the best albums of the year. Diane Coffee’s set will definitely provide the theatrical flare for the night, but his music has true bedroom origins, the isolation and grit of New York City at its core.

Rounding out the lineup are Jesus Sons, a Los Angeles-based outfit that knows rock and roll is best served with some blues and a thick layer of motor oil. Show up early and you might see some familiar faces. Fronted by Brandon Wurtz, former bassist of The Spyrals, and originally formed in San Francisco, Jesus Sons played their first show a little over a year ago at Brick & Mortar and are coming back home with some new tunes.
