The Darling Sweets at Monterey Club, August 6

It's no secret that Lake Worth's red-hot scene seems to birth a new band of Americana-roots-whatever-loving types almost every week. That's awesome — the underground music world can never have enough tattooed, bearded manly men — but females have been pretty scant on the circuit's stages. Until now! Enter the Darling Sweets, a new Lake Worth act that's coed but heavily — three-fifths — xx-chromosomed. A little bit folk, a little bit rockabilly, a little bit jug band, the band's take on the current fever for the old-timey is fiery and sexy, thanks in large part to frontwoman Lindsey's robust vocals. Add an unabashed love for the accordion, banjo, and ukulele and you've got a fresh local act to watch.
