Somebody’s Darling Is Having a Birthday
No, I don’t mean somebody’s sweetheart or someone’s girlfriend or anything like that. I am of course referring to the Dallas band Somebody’s Darling, one of the many great artists who took the stage last Saturday at Dada. It turns out that one year ago today, the band held its very first show ever at Green Elephant. The fact that the band is a mere one year old is pretty overwhelming to me. I know many bands that have been together for years that struggle to get a fraction of both the audience and the talent that SD already possesses.
If you want to wish them a happy birthday, go check them out at House of Blues tonight. They will open up for He Wears Black, a Johnny Cash tribute band. This will not be in the little Pontiac Garage (formerly the Cambridge Room), but in the main venue. By the way, HOB, way to go on featuring local acts on bills for two nights in a row. Let’s see more of that local action coming our way.
Tickets for the event can be purchased for as little as $12. Enjoy that price. If Somebody’s Darling keeps rising in popularity as quickly as they have in their first year, you may see them headlining at House of Blues for a whole lot more money. See them now while you can, and if you see a band members hanging around, buy them a beer and wish them a happy birthday.
Oh, and of course, tell them “The Ghost” says hi.
