Music: The Knotwells
Country + Punk + Bluegrass + Gypsy. Not enough? Mix it all with sideshow theatrics, frenetic melodies, and chaotic charisma and you have the hoedown throwdown of the summer by these beloved dance party punks. The Knotwells’ extremely danceable yet satisfyingly dark circus of sounds charges with abandon from old school country to murder ballads to Appalachian folk, all with a touch of mania.
