The 17th installment of Twangfest found a packed house at Plush eager for the promised mix of country, roots, folk and blues tunes.

Headlining the first night of Twangfest 17, presented by 88.1 KDHX, was troubadour Todd Snider, supported by the legendary Ray Wylie Hubbard. St. Louis' own Stickley & Canan were tapped as openers; the trio delivered an energetic set of pub-flavored favorites. Hubbard -- backed only by a drummer and possessing but one guitar -- rocked out a set of his best material, with the audience singing along to such favorites as "Snake Farm" and "Up Against the Wall, Redneck Mother" -- plus Amanda Shires joined in on some excellent, spontaneous fiddle breaks.

The crowd was primed for fun by the time Snider took the stage, bereft of shoes but sporting a scraggly beard underneath his fedora. Snider chatted with a boisterous audience who sang along to nearly every song in a lengthy set. If night one is any judge, Twangfest 17 will continue to be one of the parties of the year.

Tower of Song: A Tribute to Leonard Cohen and 80th Birthday Party Leonard Cohen started out as a poet, and poetry -- ecstatic, spiritual, erotic and political -- suffuses all of his work. When he launched a career as a songwriter and singer in the '60s, only Bob Dylan could match his visionary...
