When Those Darlins Play "Be His Bro or Stick It In," Mr. T Wins Every Time

When Tennessee rock band Those Darlins opens for Best Coast at Grand Central on July 10, it's a safe bet the trio is going to get loud enough to turn your ears into sour mash.

But you might be asking yourself, how would frontwoman Jessi Darlin fare in an obnoxious game based on the lyrics of her band's song, "Be Your Bro"?

Find out who Jessi wants to "Be Her Bro" and who she wants to "Stick It In" after the cut!

In the song, Jessi sings:

I just wanna run and play in the dirt with you

You just wanna stick it in

I just wanna be your brother

I don't wanna be your lover

Woah-woah-woah, I wanna be your bro

The rules of the game are simple: Jessi will be presented with a well-known personage and have to decide if she would prefer to "be his bro" or to "stick it in." Ready, Jessi?

Ryan Gosling...be his bro or stick it in?

Bro. He's too pretty.

Cuba Gooding, Jr....be his bro or stick it in?

Bro. He's just not my type.

Mr. T....be his bro or stick it in?

That's a tough one. Stick it in. He is definitely my type. I think he's an individual. He's himself. He's unique.

George Jetson...be his bro or stick it in?

Bro. Too much of a dad.

Napoleon...be his bro or stick it in? 

Napleon Bonaparte? He's a bro. The whole short man trying to be bigger than he is, I can't stand that. Anyone who has a Napoeon complex is not for me.

Bradley Cooper...be his bro, stick it in or crush him under a boulder?

I don't hate him enough to crush under a boulder. So, bro.


Jessi says, "It looks like Mr. T is the only one I chose. But then, he is my perfect type. I don't settle for less."

And don't you settle for less, either. Jessi and the rest of Those Darlins (plus Mr. T. in the VIP?) will be at Grand Central next Tuesday!

Best Coast with Those Darlins. Tuesday, July 10. Grand Central, 697 N. Miami Ave., Miami. Doors at 8 p.m. and tickets cost $20 plus fees via fla.vor.us. Ages 18 and up. Call 305-377-2277 or visit grandcentralmiami.com.
