Darling Thieves

When: Thu., Dec. 9 2010

Earlier this year, and for the oddest of reasons, I Hate Kate! transformed itself into the virtually identical Darling Thieves. According to former Zebrahead singer/guitarist Justin Mauriello, his current pop-punk outfit opted for the name change after the Kate in question left a message on his voicemail threatening legal action. The whole thing sounds pretty dubious, especially since Mauriello subsequently leaked the recording online. But after all, this is a guitar band that does an apparently unironic cover of one synthpop-hit wonder Peter Schilling's "Major Tom," so who knows? See them at the Black Sheep (2106 E. Platte Ave., blacksheeprocks.com) tonight with the Epilogues, Kill Matriarch, and the Field the Ocean, 7:30 p.m., $10, all ages. — Bill Forman
