Darkbird’s ‘Queen of Scream,’ Kelly Barnes, washed the sweaty residue form the band’s latest video, cleaned up super sharp and brought her bad self out to Oskar Blues Brewery on Saturday. Classified as a rock band…not a “sub-genre” rock band…not a “sort of sounds like a mix of so and so” rock band. Just a solid rock band, with its own identity and sound, Darkbird has catapulted onto the music scene and gained some heavy recognition from established live music venues and radio stations. Their latest video and ode to the Purple One, “Bad Self”, premiered in the Austin Chronicle last month and the band stayed busy all throughout Free Week. Now Darkbird is hitting the local brewery circuit with upcoming shows at The ABGB and Independence Brewing Co. But for now, you can enjoy the highlights below from the band’s latest show at Oskar Blues Brewery.
