Red Heart Alarm

Shoreline is a wonderful place to raise children. It has a nationally-renowned school district and tree-lined streets dotted by cozy homes filled with upper middle class families. But where to go at night? That’s a question Shoreline’s long struggled to answer beyond “card rooms” or “nondescript restaurant lounges.” Darrell’s Tavern, however, has stepped into this void since Dan Dyckman took over the Aurora dive—slogan: “Where your dad used to drink!” -- over a year ago. Dyckman’s programmed a smorgasbord of live entertainment, from standup comedy to live jazz to a quarterly “rock & roll circus,” featuring a slew of grunge-era gods in various formations. Tonight, Red Heart Alarm brings its rock-solid country-rock catalogue to Darrell’s stage, near which a vintage Country Club Malt Liquor plaque hangs on the wall. With Julia Massey, Jesus Rehab.
