Black Rabbit is a punk/rock/garage power trio from Burlington, VT circa 2011. Their MO is short and catchy songs with lots of hooks and sing-along choruses. Marc and Darlene started out in New York City in a band called Ride The Mole, playing clubs like CBGB, The Knitting Factory, and Luna Lounge. After moving to Vermont they regrouped as a three piece, featuring the core elements of guitar, bass and drums. Their interests include melody, harmony, loudness, and speed. In 2015 Black Rabbit released the critically-acclaimed full-length album Red Flannel Hash and were named “Best Rock Artist/Group” by Seven Days.

- “Worshipping at the church of CBGB circa 1976, Black Rabbit’s music spans the gamut of the artists who played there: early Ramones to early Blondie. “Nicky Says” sounds like a nod to the Velvet Underground’s “Candy Says,” while “It’s Cold” could be a lost Dead Boys song.” -County Tracks, 5/3/17

Black Rabbit EP – June 23, 2012

Lipstick and Dynamite – June 21, 2014
- “Black Rabbit remain rooted in 1970s punk and bands such as the Ramones and New York Dolls. But on their latest, they use the iconic sounds of those bands merely as a launching point to explore new avenues. The result is a self-assured and markedly improved album that finds Black Rabbit beginning to truly forge a unique identity.” -Seven Days
