The Twang Gang is hard at work on the lineup for Twangfest 21, which will be held June 7-10, 2017 at the Off Broadway Night Club. We are excited about sharing the full lineup with you soon. Stay tuned!

We are also gearing up for SXSW 2017 in Austin, Texas. Our annual day party will be held March 16, 2017 at the Broken Spoke. As always, this will be a free party with 10 great Americana, rock, folk and country artists. Full schedule and lineup is coming soon!

And last but least, we will once again present music at the Tower Grove Farmers’ Market during the upcoming season. Thanks to our sponsors GadellNet, Kuva Coffee and Commerce Bank for making this season possible. We’ll post more details here in the coming weeks.

On Saturday, June 11, the final night of Twangfest 20, the Waco Brothers will take the stage at Off Broadway. We are thrilled to have them back!

Get tix for Saturday night!

The band has a new album on Bloodshot Records, and they’ve graciously allowed us to premiere this brand new video. Here’s Jon Langford on the new song “Going Down in History”: “This song was written before the current election campaign but describes how current political elites, establishment and institutions are on the brink of collapse but what will replace them might not be what we want or expect… It’s a double entendre!”

The Wacos will also be playing an EXCLUSIVE house concert on Saturday, June 11 in the afternoon. Want to go? Get your Friends of Twangfest pack now!
