INDIE PUNK | Slingshot Dakota


Hailing from Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, Slingshot Dakota formed in 2003 as a trio headed by front woman Carly Comando. The band's current incarnation is that of an energetic keyboard-drums duo: Comando is joined by drummer Tom Patterson. With both Comando and Patterson sharing vocal duties, Slingshot Dakota's interweaving male and female vocals and electric sound has drawn comparisons with other duos like Matt and Kim and Mates of State. Slingshot Dakota latest album, "Dark Hearts," was released in 2012 off of Boston-based label Topshelf Records.

Slingshot Dakota plays with Department, Quarries, and Greenhouse Heart on Sunday, February 15, at the Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Avenue. 9 p.m. $7-$9.;
