Download The Key’s XPoNential Music Festival 2012 Sampler!

The 2012 XPoNential Music Festival is upon us, and we’re happy to say that, along with the national big names Wilco and Counting Crows headlining, we’ve got a solid offering of some of our favorite homegrown music on the bill. Dr. Dog and Dave Hause on Saturday, the Good Old War On Work Drugs triumverate across the weekend, singer-songwriters Matt Santry and Dana Alexandra, synth poppers City Rain and gothic Americana four-piece The Bailey Hounds. Most of those musicians have recorded for WXPN in one form or another, and as we get ready to open the gates at 5 today, we present you with The Key’s XPoNential Music Festival 2012 Sampler. You can download the entire thing here, and load it onto your iPod for the car ride over to Wiggins Park tonight. Tracklisting after the jump.
