The Don'ts and Be Carefuls

The Don'ts and Be Carefuls

 Denver, Colorado, USA

"With their youthful exuberance and refreshingly innocent songwriting, even early on [the DBCs] had more in common with the eccentric pop sensibilities of Jonathan Richman than the ultra-catchy bastard children of post-punk that have plagued us the last several years." Tom Murphy, Westword


"In the spring of 2008, after solidifying their line-up, The Don'ts and Be Carefuls started to imagine up some songs and began playing their first shows ... [performing] the sort of music that some have deemed "fun" yet "intense"... From the beginning these guys possessed an immediacy that was difficult to ignore, and their performances displayed a rare conviction not seen since your parents told you not to touch the stove...It's hot you know. So is this band. Hot to make you dance. Releasing its debut EP, Risk Assessment, [The DBCs] have captured the first rush of its songwriting without losing an ounce of the heartfelt emotions and tangible sense of innocence that characterizes the band's sound. " Written by Tom Murphy, Westword, Dec. '09.
