Join us for Rockwell Roadhouse – a high-energy live music series featuring regional Americana, folk, and rock bands, right in the lobby of The Rockwell Museum. Let off some steam from your work week at this energetic happy hour event, complete with cash bar and tasty hors d’oeuvres, setting the stage for a great night out in Downtown Corning. Art lovers are welcome to explore The Rockwell’s collection after-hours. Reservations are required by 5 p.m. on the previous day.
We’re pleased to welcome Hymn for Her to The Rockwell stage. Hymn for Her has been busy touring across the country and abroad over the past few years, injecting juiced-up backwoods country blues with a dose of desert rock psychedelia that has been described as “Hell’s Angels meets the Amish,” and “Hillbillies with electronics opening Pandora’s Box.”
Their wild-eyed mash-up of country, blues and punk led U.K. music critic Steve Bennett to call H4H’s sound “a riotous, rocking roadkill stew,” while others have referenced such diverse bands as Captain Beefheart, Primus, X, R.L. Burnside, JS Blues Explosion and the Ramones.
Impressively, the two create their “ripsaw sounds” (Los Angeles Times’ Randy Lewis) with only a few instruments. Wayne (with the devilish voice), mainly playing the kick-drum, high-hat, acoustic guitar and harp, serves as the group’s rhythmic driving force. Lucy (of the fallen-angel voice) delivers a gritty squall on her “Lowebow” — a custom-made cigar-box guitar: “The Riff Monster.” Catch this duo as they burn down the highway and tear up your town like a Wichita twister.
