Comix is proud to present bad ass singer/songwriter, joke-telling Hamell On Trial for one night only on Monday, April 16th at 8:00 PM.
Hamell On Trial defies all musical categories. The terms “Punk acoustic” and “anti-folk” come close to describing his musical style. If you’re looking for cum-bye-yah by some soft-strumming, tearful folkie, Hamell On Trial is going to offend you. On stage his raw, bold energy has Rolling Stone magazine calling him a “homicidal Otto Preminger.”
“Choochtown”, his first record on his own recording label Such a Punch Media, received a 5-star review in Uncut magazine ("Absolutely brilliant!"), and Hamell’s first European tour met with sold-out shows in London and Ireland. With his battered 1937 small-body Gibson, Hamell checks the pulse of the nation and gives it to us straight. And we're glad he does.
