Darlene: An indie pop trio of friends. Darlene’s members each earned critical acclaim with recording artists Meadoe, Radiolaria, Fairmount Girls, Culture Queer and Ditchweed. Darlene drove into the indie rock scene in 2008 with their debut EP, Studio of Beauty. The band's forthcoming album, joins DJ Cuddly D's nonchalant naïveté with Janey’s O’Laneys discordant melodic guitar and Robby D’s luscious drum parts to spark another collection of delicious Home-Ec-inspired crowd pleasers. With standout tracks like "Pots and Pans,” Darlene will play a not-to-miss set at Midpoint before heading out for an east coast tour. Free Special D cupcakes.
