Kentucky Knife Fight - Interview and Acoustic Set

Kentucky Knife Fight (or most of them, anyway) joins us to play an acoustic set and talk to Nick Garcia about how they got their name, playing LouFest and a seredipitous meeting there that led to the making of the new video for their song "Bad Blood", and about their upcoming show on Friday, October 11th at Plush.


"Love The Lonely"

"Always a Bribe, Never a Bride"

"No Fault of My Own"

While the city's name is in the name of the band, don't think Devon Cahill and Gene Starks are from there. In fact, they're from St. Louis. Their music does harken to the sounds of that place 250 miles south of the Gateway City, as well as a melange of other musical styles, mostly based in roots music. St. Louis Public Radio's Erin Williams talks to Cahill and Starks about how they got their name, their early days in performance and how they found music as a conduit to happiness, and then a way of life. They even play a few songs in-studio as well.

Songs performed:

"Tell Me I'm The Best"

"Never Look Back"

Sleepy Kitty:

"Hold Your Ground" (from the upcoming album "Projection Room")

"I Wanna Be Your Man"
