Those Darlins, Diane Coffee 

When: Sat., Nov. 16, 9 p.m. 2013
Price: $12
Shaun Fleming was a child voice actor (Kim Possible) and he's now the drummer in Foxygen's live band. He's also Diane Coffee, and the first Diane Coffee album, My Friend Fish, was not an album I was prepared to love—child actors, Jenny Lewis excepted, don't usually make particularly worthwhile music, and Foxygen have mastered pretty much everything except their live show. But Diane Coffee's first full-length is in fact a homegrown album of pure pop delight, its lo-fi but never slapdash recordings carefully, lovingly constructed. "Never Lovely" is a rough-and-tumble soul-funk gem, and "Tale of a Dead Dog" is a stoned slice of folk-psych with sugar-sweet harmonies. Fleming opens for Nashville's Those Darlins, who've mellowed a little on their latest album, the very good Blur the Line, but surely remain a volatile live force of the best type of Southern rawk.
