[TICKET GIVEAWAY] Those Darlins w/ Diarrhea Planet and SPEEDBOATS at Off Broadway!

Thank goodness Nashville is just 4-ish hours from here. Thank goodness we’ve been happy hosts for Those Darlins over the years as they’ve changed lineups, refined their sound, and continue to release recorded material indicative of growth and maturity as artists. And thank goodness we can still count on them to throw a hell of a party.

On Saturday, the Darlins once again take the stage at Off Broadway, this time with an absolutely sick supporting cast, including Nashville’s coolest garage rock band with the worst name, Diarrhea Planet, and STL’s own post-punk purveyors SPEEDBOATS.

Never complacent, Those Darlins have already released a new live video and a new song in 2014 following a banner 2013, during which they put out Blur the Line, the band’s third full-length album:

    I was recently told by a friend that “Diarrhea Planet has give guitarists and you can hear all of them” when they play live. I wanna!

  2. Patty Faller says:

    I would love to go because I am still kicking myself for missing them when they were here in August. It’s kind of starting to hurt.

  3. Bob says:

    I would like these free tickets because:
    -It has been ages since I’ve seen a show at Off Broadway.
    -Both bands appeal to my lost sense of youth.
    -I am completely broke.

    I had plans to go to Chicago this weekend that I unfortunately had to cancel due to personal reasons. Needless to say, I’m bummed. I can’t think of anything that would cheer me up more than free tickets to see SPEEDBOATS, Diarrhea Planet and Those Darlins.

    I like all of these bands. I just got back from a trip to Hawaii during which a 3-year long relationship crumbled and I ran out of money way too fast and I got frequent headaches listening to hippies talk about Lemurians and light bodies. So I would like to drink some beer with my friends and enjoy this music and not get headaches or think about hippies or exes for a few hours.

  6. CW says:

    I’d like to go because Speedboats and Those Darlins are just amazing, who wouldn’t want to see a band called Diarrhea Planet, and no one wants to see Matt Wicks win the free tickets (kidding). But really, Sharif should win because he’s a rad dude.

  7. Alicia says:

    I’ve been dying to see Those Darlins for a while now. I traveled to Chicago last month to see Yuck and Diarrhea Planet was opening but missed them because we were running late! So bummed, man… So bummed.

  8. Emily says:

    I would love to go to this show because:
    1) A band called Diarrhea Planet is playing and how could I ever miss that and
    2) it’s been two sad years since I have seen Those Darlins and I am ready to be shocked and awed by them once again.

  9. John Richter says:

    Because all of these bands are great, and I there’s an opportunity to see them for free, so why not try? I mean, that’s basically ‘why’ for everyone, right?

    OH my goodness. This concert is happening?? This is fantastic news.

    The last time I saw Diarrhea Planet play at Grammophone, I was dealthy ill and decided to go anyway. I drank 5 hot toddies and was miraculously upright for all 3 openers, plus of course DP. I had a blast despite how gross I felt/looked and have since wondered if it would be even more totally incredible if I was a properly functioning and healthy human.

    And holy crap, Those Darlins?? I have never seen them live and would rock out SO hard to ‘Screws Get Loose’ and sway SO hard to ‘Oh God.’ And I’d probably yell “THANKS I WENT TO A SHOW.COM” really loud at some point, as per usual.

    I would really love to go see this show! I love Those Darlins and Diarrhea Planet! Unfortunately I’m broke right now so it would really helpe out if I could get these tickets.
