Twangfest 15 came and went in a four-day blur of Americana and damp floors. The post-Twang comedown includes, as it always does, an auction of music related items to benefit KDHX. Right now, there are some 150 things you can bid on, including signed CDs from Twangfest performers, Art Chantry posters and various other memorabilia. Specific highlights include:
Signed CDs by Steve Wynn, the Baseball Project and other Twangfest performers.
Signed metal box set of Gang of Four's Content.
A Lupe Fiasco skateboard.
Signed posters by Paul Weller and J Mascis.
Posters from the KDHX tribute concerts for Bob Dylan, James Brown, Alex Chilton and Uncle Tupelo -- all signed by the bands that played.
Tons of 7" inch singles, including a cool St. Louis rock single pack featuring the Sex Robots, Gentleman Callers, the Electric and the Megahurts.
Fifteen original silkscreen concert posters, all designed and signed by the legendary Art Chantry. A few of them feature shows that took place right here in St. Louis.
