The three-headed femme-fatale attack of Those Darlins suffered a blow when Kelley "Darlin" Anderson left the band, leaving "sisters" Nikki and Jessi Darlin to keep the ship afloat. Thankfully, 2011's Screws Get Loose kept much the same twangy, garage-rock vibe that made the band a local favorite after the group's frequent visits to town. The unpolished, off-the-cuff mood can't disguise the smirking, girl-group smarts at the core of these songs. On the latest LP, "Be Your Bro" argues for a true platonic friendship between a guy and a gal, but the dude ain't having it. It's not hard to understand why — crushes abound at Those Darlins shows, either romantic, musical or otherwise.

Preaching to the Converted: If you've missed Those Darlins in past visits — at 2010's Twangfest, opening for Drive-By Truckers or one of many other shows — you'll be among fans who can vouch for the band's boozy bonhomie in concert.
