Mike Harmeier and his Moonpies storm the Broken Spoke every Wednesday, a residency well worth witnessing, despite the construction horror surrounding the venerable South Lamar dance hall. Rocking honky-tonk as varied as any hardcore country band around, the local quintet follows in the footsteps of heroes Doug Sahm and Gary Stewart, yet they remain contemporary enough to keep the dance floor full. 2012’s The Hard Way displayed unexpected finesse underneath its rugged energy. – Jim Caligiuri
