Song Of The Day: Ha Ha Tonka – Race To The Bottom

unnamed

I don’t know if any other bands are competing in the very specific category of whimsically witty, geographically themed names, but Ha Ha Tonka‘s killing it in my book. Originally named “Amsterband”, the indie rockers are named after the Ha Ha Tonka state park in Missouri, a nod to their southern roots.

The band is coming to DC9 on June 14th to share their emotionally charged, narrative driven, southern-indie rock with the District. Give them a listen and then check them out in person.

Ha ha Tonka’s latest, Heart-Shaped Mountain, is out now on Bloodshot Records.
