At the same time as we publish this post on a late Friday evening here in Chattanooga, Those Darlins hit the stage in our sister city, Nashville, at The Basement East… Sadly, this will be their very last show.
If you’ve been a long-time follower of The South Rail, then you know how we’ve loved us some Those Darlins since their very beginning… And if you haven’t heard by now, the band has been touring this January… performing their final shows on their “Farewell” tour – The tour that is ending this evening.
Experiencing the “end” of one of our favorite bands, during their last Chattanooga date at JJ’s Bohemia, well… that grabbed our music-loving soul. We know each member will be continuing with separate music and/or art projects in the near future, and we wish them all the best of luck. We can’t wait to see what 2016 has to offer… but knowing that “the band” is leaving on “indefinite hiatus”… “the band” that grew up at the same time as this blog… well, it made us hungry to do this “thing”… To bring The South Rail back once again!
We know, we know… This blog has slowly died out since 2014, and has been very off & on near it’s “end”… But a band who’s music inspired us to “South Rail” to begin with, well… they have inspired us yet again…
Established in 2009, we are ready to give this another shot. Slowed down by a major hack that destroyed our website (luckily had a back-up of every artical). Now, with a minor refresh to support mobile content, we are back.
Best of luck again to Those Darlins! I’m sure you’re killing it right now at tonight’s sold out show! We can’t wait to see what you have up your sleeves in 2016 and the future! Thank you for years of great times and tunes!
Here’s a round-up of all our favorite Those Darlins tracks… Dig in and enjoy – TSR
