Midwest Mayhem
by Jaime Lees

Aside from knowing that you’ve contributed to the greatest radio station on Earth, one of the other perks of donating to KDHX is access to this – consistently one of the best parties of the year. The station hosts the Midwest Mayhem as a thank-you to listeners, who will pack every of the City Museum for this celebration of independent radio. At this event, music is quite literally around every corner, with bands and performers jammed into every delightful little nook in the building. Expect performances from musicians that are as diverse as the programming on KDHX, ranging from blues to pop to rap.

Worth it: You can also buy tickets at the door for $20, which is a small price to pay for so many local favorites including Tef Poe, the Union Electric, So Many Dynamos, Funky Butt Brass Band and Middle Class Fashion.
