Ha Ha Tonka 

Sunday, April 6, at the Beachland Tavern.

It's hard to tell whether the members of Missouri's Ha Ha Tonka love or hate their home state. There's definite affection in the grooves for the small-town Americana they carve out on Buckle in the Bible Belt. Then again, most of the songs revolve around people who are strung out on drugs and barely surviving in Bush's U.S.A. The music — a twangy mix of slicing guitars and classic rock hooks — is often just as angry and confused.
