Centro-matic headlined the evening and put on a thrilling show for their St. Louis fan base. With sweat soaked guitarist/vocalist Will Johnson leading the charge, the Denton, Texas based band took command of the stage with a tight set of songs that had the audience singing along from the opening note.
No strangers to the 314, Springfield, Missouri based quintet Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin put on a blistering performance of rock 'n' roll. With the pedal to the floor and their amps turned up, SSLYBY absolutely wailed from start to finish.
Nashville songwriter Tristen gripped the crowd with her unique mix of 80's inspired dance music. With a healthy blend of guitars and synth, accompanied by charming banter with the audience, Tristen wasted no time in winning over the Twangfest faithful.
St. Louis based Americana artist Beth Bombara kicked off the evening with a high energy set that featured a wide-ranging sound containing hints of blues, folk and rock. Bombara and her band laid the foundation for what was an excellent night of music.
