Interview: SXSW 2011 with Those Darlins from Tennessee

Now these three Darlins from Tennessee have got to be the baddest and raddest gals making their way to Austin this year for some serious SXSW carnage. Aside from being total cuties, these wild ladies (and gent) will charm you with their raw country-garage rock. With honest and comical lyrics about eating a whole chicken while drunk or songs that warn potential suitors of their “wild” tendencies, Those Darlins are always a damn good time! If you want to be all smiles at a fun showcase, do not miss these ladies at SXSW!

P.S. If you’re not headed to SXSW this year, you can catch Those Darlins at the Satellite on Tuesday, April 19! Grimy Goods is presenting the show and it’s gonna be a wild party! Get your tickets here! Their new album, Screws Get Loose, is coming at you on March 29!

We caught up with Jessi Darlin’ before they venture out to SXSW madness! Check out what she had to say below:

  • How many SXSWes have you done?
    This will be our third
  • What showcases are you doing this year?
    We are playing at Rachel Ray’s party and at Swan Dive for out Thirty Tigers official showcase, both on Thursday the 17th. Then we got to scoot back out on tour.
  • What bands do you want to see at SXSW year?
    I don’t think I’ll have time to see any but hmm … Are Sunny and The Sunsets going? Id like to see that band.
  • What word of advice would you give to newbie SXSWers?
    Play as great as you can despite all the technical problems and exhaustion and possible lack of audience. There might be five people at your show, there might be 500, but you can guarantee at least one of them is somebody you want to care about your band.
  • SXSW drink of choice?
  • Anything else you’d like to add?
    Let the games beginnnnnn
