Ha Ha Tonka

Ha Ha Tonka headlines a bill stacked with Midwest music.

Just one day removed from Thanksgiving — on Black Friday — Off Broadway will serve as a cornucopia overflowing with some of the finest boot-stomping rock & roll budding from the vast Midwestern soil. Old Lights' (St. Louis) vintage, synth-heavy pop nuggets will prep the palate, while Lydia Loveless' (Columbus, Ohio) Loretta Lynn-goes-punk sound will wash down like Grandpa's Kentucky bourbon. Ha Ha Tonka's (Springfield) mandolin-soaked Bible Belt hymnals will serve as the perfect main course. Consider this comfort food for those uncomfortable with being sober.

The Name Game: Ha Ha Tonka may be a hell of a magical state park, but it's a silly band name. Although it still beats Amsterband, the group's former moniker.
