Danbert Nobacon 10/17/10

Danbert Nobacon makes music like a British anarchist fighting with instruments found in the Grand Ole Opry’s basement. With pared down backing and politically driven lyrics, Nobacon's songs have the feel of a tune swap at a punk campfire.

Big Smith 6/9/10

Big Smith, currently composed of 6 family members, has been evolving professionally since 1996. The band originates from Springfield, Mo., and exemplifies the culture of the Ozarks. Their music is guttural, mischievous and soulful. The family plays a few foot-stomping hillbilly tunes on KDHX in advance of its Twangfest 14 headlining set.
