Ha Ha Tonka + Crystal City
$15 // Kum & Go Theater // 7:30 PM
Ha Ha Tonka are a rock band from the Ozarks named after a sweet, sweet Missouri State Park. Their label, Bloodshot Records, says the following about them –
“Ha Ha Tonka sit at the crossroads of Americana and indie, where Alabama meets Arcade Fire – shakes their hand and takes them out for a drink.”
The group’s relentless touring has taken them to the stages of Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits, Sundance Film Festival, SWSW and nationally as a headlining act. In 2011, Ha Ha Tonk was a guest on Anthony Bourdain’s show, No Reservations. In 2017, they Played on the Conan O’Brien show.
Taking on dual personalities, Crystal City plays regularly around the Midwest as a Rock ’n’ Roll outfit as well as performing more intimately as a fingerstyle duo, with rich harmonies and melodic whistling, comparable to the likes of Andrew Bird. Crystal City’s classic songwriting can warm a weary heart and get bedraggled feet stomping.
