The Darling Sweets at the Monterey Club August 6

It's no secret that Lake Worth's red-hot scene seems to birth a new band of Americana-roots-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.

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 Sweets' take on old-timey tunes 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 have a fresh local act to watch.
