Allo Darlin': Evening Show

Allo Darlin' are many things. They can turn a room in a famous punk venue into a joyous, jumping, sweaty, pop-mosh pit. Or bring a room of 500 to hushed silence with the few strums of a ukulele and a love song about cooking chilli. Their DIY attitude inspires true dedication from their fans, some of whom will travel hundreds of miles to see them.

The band have toured across the USA and Europe, as well as wowing the crowds at End Of The Road and Indietracks festival. They’ve also been strongly supported by BBC 6music, recording several sessions including one at the BBC’s prestigious Maida Vale Studios at the invitation of Steve Lamacq.

Their self-titled debut was released to universal acclaim in 2010 with plaudits including being named No. 2 record of the year by eMusic, and a glowing 1,200 word essay by legendary Go-Between Mr. Robert Forster in the Australian critical magazine, The Monthly. This was followed by 'Europe' (2012), earning them Rough Trade's Album Of The Month as well as rave reviews in NME and Pitchfork, and their most accomplished work to date, We Come From The Same Place (2014).

Now, with the band members spread across many countries, the challenges of geography and children mean that Allo Darlin' is at an end. Singer Elizabeth Morris says, "After eight years of playing, laughing, driving, dancing, singing and generally having the time of our lives, we are calling it a day. We will be playing our last show at the Scala in London, December 11th 2016. We hope to see as many of you as possible at the Scala, and thank you so much for giving us the time of our lives."
