Twangfest won't arrive until June, but 88.1 KDHX and Twangfest delivered a taste of what's to come with their 13th annual SXSW day parties this past week in Austin.
The year 2011 was a great one for music. My #1 was an album that I heard at the beginning of the year, but it was able to stay in my top spot, a rare occurrence for me.
Some of St. Louis' best bands came out to play at Off Broadway Saturday night to support their favorite music playground: Firebrand Recording. The local recording label hosted its 2nd Annual Firebrand Showcase, featuring the Humanoids, Kentucky Knife Fight and the Blind Eyes. The event was a hit considering the bar’s flowing stream of alcohol and, best of all, the samplings of impressive local music that would please any rock palate.
