Twangfest takes place June 6-9 in St. Louis. From the website:
What we’ve put together represents, in our humble opinion, the absolute best roots, rock, country and folk being performed today. From the time-tested songwriting chops of John Doe to the old-time scuttle of Pokey LaFarge, from the fiery heartland folk rock of Ha Ha Tonka and Langhorne Slim to the sweet, soulful voice of Kelly Hogan.
Check out the full lineup, complete with artist profiles, videos and more.
Single night tickets are $15 for Wednesday and Thursday nights, $20 for Friday and Saturday. Single tickets will be available beginning Friday, March 30 at 5 p.m. CST. See the Tickets page for ticketing links and more info.
Here’s a video from St. Louis’ very own Pokey LaFarge and the South City Three, who play Wednesday night June 6th at the Schlafly Tap Room (and at the St. Louis Art Museum on June 22nd):
That’s finals week for me, otherwise I would come down for this. Looks cool, and the price is right.
Yeah, I’d like to check out Pokey LaFarge – I think the bass guy is Harold’s cousin.
