Show preview: Winfield Hangover at The Riot Room, 10.26.13

Missed the Walnut Valley Festival (or Winfield, as you may know it) last month? Went and still can’t get enough? Never fear, Kansas City: twelve local bands will be performing at The Riot Room this Saturday night as a part of The Winfield Hangover.
The concert has been organized by Eddie Crane (of Loaded Goat, pictured below), who has been a large proponent of the roots/Americana scene for years. “Every year when the Walnut Valley Festival in Winfield ends, I feel like I can hear 15,000 hearts breaking, knowing that it's another 360 days until it rolls around again. I just wanted to give everyone another taste and put together a show for some of the folks that couldn't make or just can't let it go,” said Crane.
