Hearts of Darkness "Shelf Life" review by David Hudnall
Hearts of Darkness is KC's most adored live act. Here are some reasons. People dance at the band's shows. Girls turn up for the shows. The group plays long, sweaty sets. The female singers are cute and charismatic. It's fun to watch the band's many members ("3,000 lbs, altogether," its Facebook page notes) huddled together, trying not to elbow one another. And the soul and swing of the music feels like a meaningful, modern link to KC's jazz heritage.
