I went to see Hymn For Her and Brokeneck at a local place. Hymn for Her is a two-person folk outfit that plays wherever they can park their trailer and they're amazing. Seriously AMAZING. Here's their song Fiddlestix.
During their last song of the night Wayne sang while laying on his back, with his feet up in the air, Lucy sitting on his feet, him holding her feet in one of his hands. She dangled a microphone over his face as he was also playing harmonica. Amazing. Simply incredible. While they played this song their two year old daughter sat next to them kicking a drum.
Brokeneck is a rockabilly group, and because rockabilly is quickly becoming my favorite genre I was ecstatic when I saw a band get on stage with an upright bass, a washboard (played with three thimbles and a shotgun shell) a crowbar, (played with a horseshoes) and no less than 8 guitars and 3 harmonicas. Made my night.
I have chosen to represent the best moment of the night in a rage comic.
This is the song they played
So, I think I'll be going to see Hymn For Her again at the same place, known as The Vault, on Halloween. The Vault is a bar in an old abandoned factory that also houses several other businesses. Wouldn't pass up a chance to see Brokeneck ever. There was a guy there who also played some very generic country. Not a bad musician, just didn't really dig it.
If any videos from this show surface I'll post them.
