From 6:30 p.m. until Midnight—sprawling across 600,000 square feet of the famed City Museum—Midwest Mayhem is KDHX’s way of thanking everyone who supported commercial-free, independent radio in Saint Louis during their recent Spring Membership Drive.
13 local bands are scheduled to perform including: Little Rachel • Née • Five and Dimers • Aaron Kamm and the One Drops • Warm Jets USA • Bob Reuter’s Alley Ghost • Javier Mendoza • The KDHX Blues Band • Tight Pants Syndrome • Funky Butt Brass Band • The Folk School of St. Louis Showcase (featuring Louisiana Purchase, the Gateway Ramblers and Boss Hall). We'll even have KDHX DJs spinning throughout the night, so look for Steve Pick of Sound Salvation & Cat Pick of Emotional Rescue, Roy Kasten of Feel Like Going Home & John Wendland of Memphis to Manchester
In addition to some pretty amazing music, the Mayhem will continue throughout the museum with burlesque performances hosted by Lola Van Ella, roaming performances from Belle of the Ball and the Lawn Chair Brigade, an outrageous Photomaton photo booth, and plenty of food and drinks.
Thanks to our sponsors this year: New Belgium Brewing Company, Sailor Jerry Rum, Anti Agency, OnDBus Professional Audio, Gravity Strings, Photomaton, Belle of the Ball, Riverfront Times, Sounds Alive, and Triple Jam Live Production.
KDHX members who belong to the Radio Frequency Club or donated during the station’s recently completed Spring Membership Drive will receive tickets to Midwest Mayhem. But if you didn't donate during the drive, it's not too late to join now!
