From the Press Release:
The line-up reflects the incomparable diversity of the KDHX programming schedule. From bluegrass to indie rock, Midwest Mayhem has something for everyone. Artists include Theodore, May Day Orchestra (featuring Tim Rakel of KDHX’s Mystery Train), the Funky Butt Brass Band, Rum Drum Ramblers, the Dock Ellis Band, the Grass Pack, the Blind Eyes, the Monads, Fred Friction (of KDHX’s Fishin’ With Dynamite), and the KDHX blues supergroup: Art Dwyer, Tom Ray, John McHenry and Ron Edwards. KDHX programmers DJ Needles (Rawthentic) and DJ Al Swacker (Greaser’s Lunchbox) will be spinning records, and Lola Van Ella and the Alley Cat Revue, one of Saint Louis’s premier burlesque troupes, will perform.
With the fantastical playground of the City Museum as the stage for all this local talent, it’s easy to see why Midwest Mayhem was voted Best Music Festival in the Riverfront Times Best of ’08 poll.
