Last week, we told you about The Mighty Pines multi-instrumentalist Gerard Erker, who wrote a catchy protest anthem: “Hey KDHX,” and was released last week on YouTube, Spotify, Amazon Music, and CD Baby. The Roots.FM is playing the song as well.
This past weekend, The Mighty Pines performed the song live for the first time at Pines Fest, under The Big Top – St. Louis, in The Grand Center Arts District. All of which was located on Washington Avenue, less than one hundred yards east of the KDHX studio, including a crowd of one thousand music fans singing along in full voice. It was a wild Saturday night. Video link below.
The song features Erker’s Mighty Pines band-mates Neil Salsich, John Hussung, and Mike Murano. Other St. Louis music heavy hitters include Al Holiday, Funky Butt Brass Band’s Aaron Chandler and Adam Hucke, Unity Quartet’s Ben Reece and vocalist Emily Wallace.
