Friday To-Do: Those Darlins / Glossary



10 p.m., White Water Tavern. $6.

Even on a busy night, here's a not-so-bold prediction. This show is going to sell out. For whatever reason — the weather, a new influx of young nightclubbers in town — the tavern's sold out several times in recent weeks, a little while back at an all-local bill. The Southern-flavored rockers Glossary, from Murfreesboro, play White Water often, and they've got a passionate, ever expanding following. But most of all, the reason you're going to have to show up earlier than you're used to is Those Darlins, a four-piece fronted by three attractive Southern women, whose formula relies on a healthy convergence of sex, camp and classic country harmony. They go by Kelley Darlin, Jessi Darlin and Nikki Darlin and play, respectively bass, guitar and baritone ukulele. Onstage, they usually favor ruffled hot pants and cowboy boots. When they sing, it's lyrics like this: “I got drunk and I ate a chicken/I ate a chicken I found in my kitchen/Not just a leg and not just a wing/I'd like to let you know that I ate the whole damn thing.” Get ready to hear some whooping.
