Before their evening show at the Old Rock House, Madisen Ward and the Mama Bear fit an in-store performance into their already packed day (heading to the store right after a KDHX in-studio session). Their debut album Skeleton Crew is out now and judging by the buzz around their sound and performances, it was a great treat to say we got to see the duo in such an intimate environment at Vintage Vinyl.
Vintage Vinyl and The Pageant hosted an afternoon treat for those already headed to the evening Dawes show by featuring a private acoustic performance by frontman Taylor Goldsmith. The intimate session packed the Halo Bar to the brim, with fans even finding seats on the floor up front to take note of the stripped-down songs.

I didn’t know what to expect when Le Butcherettes showed up at Vintage Vinyl and it’s safe to say that it also didn’t turn out anything like I would have expected. Known more for their intense live rock performances, the trio settled in with an acoustic set that still maintained the unpredictable drama with front-woman Teri Gender-Bender finishing off her last song outside on Delmar with an impromptu smashing of her guitar.
A bit of traffic meant that I was only able to attend the final two songs of Lilly Hiatt‘s set at Vintage Vinyl, but a good number of Twangfest attendees made their way over to the store to get their second dose of the Nashville songwriter after her Off Broadway show.
