The sold out third night of Twangfest 16 was bombastic. Langhorne Slim must have clocked in a couple miles from jumping across the stage his entire set, not to mention jumping down and mingling with the audience for some intimate, up close singing. The audience didn't let Langhorne leave so easily and demanded a encore after his very enticing, high energy set.
Ha Ha Tonka went on after being introduced for the 3rd time to a Twangfest stage. The Missouri natives put on one of their most rambunctious shows to date, ending with Lucas Long climbing on the ceiling, a stage dive, and a second encore of "Black Betty," always a crowd favorite.
Not forgotten, nor overlooked, opener Kasey Anderson and the Honkies impressed the crowd with their rootsy rock and a voice that came straight from the soul.
Twangfest 16, night 3, went down as one of the best shows of the year.
