Darling New Neighbors Wants Your Vote in NPR Blog Theme Song Contest

Maybe you haven't heard: August is Darling New Neighbors Month in Austin - and to celebrate, they want your vote in NPR's music blog theme song contest. Monitor Mix, headed by Carrie Brownstein (of Sleater-Kinney fame), narrowed the field of contestants and Darling New Neighbors is currently in the top 10, and they want fans and friends to give them the win. Let's do this!

The indie pop darlings have been favorite live performers since 2004, bringing an eclectic, energetic genre spanning repretoire to the stage. Darling New Neighbors, known for covering popular rap and Tejano tunes as well as producing an original melange of country, folk, punk, and "accordion disco" tracks, will perform a similar mix of old and new tunes Thursday, August 6th at Austin Moose Lodge No. 1735. Then at Carousel Lounge on Saturday, August 22nd, DNN officially launches Rocket, the long awaited and anticipated self-released followup to Every Day Is Saturday (I Eat Records, 2006). I'll have official news about the show posted the week of the big release party.

In the meantime, vote for Darling New Neighbors' song at
