Better Than: Most of the shows we've seen since we saw the Darkness in 2004
When New Times spoke with Darkness guitarist Dan Hawkins
, he insisted that his band puts on a stadium-sized show literally every
time it steps on stage -- regardless of the venue, crowd size, or any other circumstance. Last night's show at Revolution provided proof that not only was the British purveyor of power chords telling us the truth, he was actually holding back just a little.
The Darkness rolled triumphantly into South Florida after nearly 10 years away. Finally, the glam-rock revivalists afforded fans the opportunity to once again bask in the glow of their cranked Marshall amps, shrieking falsettos, and rampant air-humping. The song "Everybody Have a Good Time" went from being an ode to a night out to a command to all in attendance.
