THE DARTS – ‘Le Communal’, Saint-Léger, Belgium – 1 July 2018
Dedicated Turn Up The Volume followers know that all female American garage gang
THE DARTS – The Devilish American Roaring Turbo Squad – has a V.I.P. room in my earsystem. Last Sunday they landed for the second time this year in Belgium with yours truly at the first row, enjoying the tropical heat on and off the podium, in a packed club.
So for those who lived on Mars the past year, I’ll detail, once more, the reasons why our adrenaline’s stream went gaga again. Because these four fired up ladies roar, rumble, rock, roll, jump, twist, scream, shout, yell, rebel, stand up, lay down, crack, burst, boil,
twirl, rotate, electrify, steam, boom, captivate, spin, sway, dance, pirouette, hop, whirl, discharge, sweat, capriole, thunder, flash, drumfire, erupt, trigger, resonate, glimmer, glisten, flicker, twinkle and make America great again. Capeesh? Despite the sultry heatwave the Californian black and white rockers did that and so much more again.
Fact: the band played in the small village of Saint-Léger, in the middle of nowhere, next to a church annex large graveyard, and I actually sensed that all second world war heroes and martyrs buried over there had a great time especially with the opener of the rowdy set… ‘
Here are some pics of the heated blitzkrieg show…
