The Infamous Stringdusters coming to Patton Alley Pub

April 27, 2009

stringdustersWe’d begun to wonder what happened to Patton Alley Pub’s plan to bring nationally touring acts through the lovable Patton Avenue bar. They seemed to be on to something after bringing Split Lip Rayfield to Springfield, then after one more national Patton Alley seemed to concentrate on the local–props for that–while the national-act agenda went low-pro. 

Well, perhaps it has awakened. (more…)

Truckstop Honeymoon to play in-house concert at High Strung Music (3/25/09)

March 13, 2009


If you’re an avid Rock Talk listener, you’ll remember a number of weeks ago where we had High Strung Music come in and talk about their in-house concert series and the upcoming Truckstop Honemoon show. These guys are road warriors and have built a pretty big name for themselves playing festivals and events all over the country. Now they’re playing in a music store and the roof is going to blow off the place. High Strung isn’t more than a 60×20 room filled with acoustics, banjos, drums, amps, strings, and stuff—and these in-house shows are packing 100 people. That makes for a very rowdy, hot, cramped, helluva good time!


High Strung In-House concert tonight!

February 28, 2009

highstrungThat’s right, a concert in a music store! Yeah, its pretty freakin’ cool. Dave has had pretty good success so far with a recent packed house show with almost 100 people in the store (whew, what a squeeeeeze!). The once-a-month series returns tonight with The Workmen Bluegrass Band. The show is early (from about 7pm-8pm or so). Might be a great way to get warmed up before the rest of your night. If you can stop by and support.

More info on the event here.

Big Brothers Big Sisters Benefit TONIGHT (2/20) at Front Porch

February 20, 2009

bigbrothersbigsistersDave Harp (owner High Strung Music and local musician) is hosting a benefit for Big Brothers Big Sisters at The Front Porch (S. Street and McDaniel in Springfield, MO). He’s got a really good lineup and might be looking for some extra talent to bring some butts in the door for a good cause. Want to help? You should.


Rock Talk (1/25/09) Speakeasy, My31Tv, The Rugs, High Strung Music, and The Seed

January 28, 2009


Whew! We had quote a packed show this week. First we have special guests Speakeasy in to talk about their upcoming show, jam an acoustic track, and shoot the shizzle. We also had a very special guest in the studio…My31 TV, yeah, the TV station. Pretty cool we thinks (we’ll have air times for that as soon as we have them). We talked to Liz Valentine about what’s up with the station, her music past, what she does now…and a bit about Rock Talk for the tv portion of the show. We’re not even half way done!

After that, we had The Rugs come in and rap about what they’re up to, as well as Moodring Records and all the awesome free stuff they’re always bringing. Then John from High Strung Music came in to talk about their open jam session and new concert series coming to the store (yeah a concert series and jam at a local music store…Hellz Yeayah!). Then lastly, we ended the show on a mellow note with Springfield’s Reggae/cool vibes act, The Seed. They’re recording home dubs and want to share them with you. Not only that, but they’ll be having a double CD release show soon and a tons of shows between.

Wow! What a show! Tons of music and TONS of great things going on from shows, to recording, to TV! Yeah, this is a good one. Listen in after the break.

All tracks now streaming.
