Those Darlins + BluBlocker Sunglasses + First Vinyl Saturday

As if I don’t talk about these lovely ladies enough, I have some more Those Darlins news…

THOSE DARLINS ANNOUNCE RELEASE TOUR & BLUBLOCKER SUPPORT FOR FIRST VINYL SATURDAY

(RECORD STORE DAY PRESENTS)

Those Darlins and drummer Sheriff Lin are hitting the road in support of Those Darlins debut album release.  Release shows include special guests The Black Lips, Heavy Trash (Jon Spencer), The So So Glos and We Are Country Mice (details below).  Other performances include a KCRW sponsored event, Bonnaroo, Mountain Aid, and Bristol Rhythm n Roots Festival.

This release tour is in part sponsored by BluBlocker Sunglasses.

(You remember Blublockers: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AHM-hWYuVS4) Not since the Oak Ridge Boys has Blublockers supported a musical act.

Whether fishing, trying to imagine what the 70’s looked like (from behind the glasses), or playing state trooper; Blublockers are affordable sunglasses that provide a one of a kind visual experience and role-playing fun…!

Those Darlins and Blublockers first endeavor together is to provide fans who buy the vinyl at select indie retailers a free pair of the sunglasses.  This offer begins on the first Record Store Day Presents Vinyl Saturday happening June 20th.
