Darling New Neighbors CD Release Show This Saturday at Carousel Lounge
Rocket, the new CD by Austin trio Darling New Neighbors, is an absolute smorgasbord of goodies. There are no boundaries confining the talents of bandmates Elizabeth Jackson, Amy Moreland, and Reid Faist within narrowed indie parameters – there awaits pop, rock, gypsy, folk, and Latin-esque adventures leaping from track to eclectic track, all done with everyone switching up instruments and contributing vocals.
The national release for Rocket is set for October 15, but in Austin we’re lucky to get our hands on it this weekend. Of course, a CD this fun and chock full of a myriad of styles would not be complete without a CD release extravaganza that is just as colorful, so DNN is having a party to celebrate this Saturday at the Carousel Lounge, 1110 E. 52nd St. The festivities start a bit early at 8 p.m. to make room for a parade of opening talent: epic drumming and dancing by The Austin Samba School (Acadêmicos da Ópera), Latino punk rock awesomeness by San Antonio band Pinata Protest, the kickin’ MC Sweet Tea (Tiana Lux), and international folk dance music ensemble Kolorash.
Holy smokes. This promises to be a most extraordinary CD release shindig. Check. It. Out.
