Tickets | $19.04
Hamell on Trial is the musical alias of New York-based folk punk hero Ed Hamell. A one-man
explosion, he is loud-as-war one minute, stepping off the microphone to whisper to an enthralled
audience the next. This is a dynamic performance informed by politics, passion, intelligence and
the all-important sense of humor. His caustic wit and devil-may-care attitude has long been a
favorite of anti-establishment icons Aesop Rock, Kimya Dawson, Ani DiFranco and the critical
elite inciting Rolling Stone magazine to call him “Bald, bold and superbad!” Henry Rollins says
“Hamell is a one man rock show!” He has been described as “Bill Hicks, Hunter S. Thompson,
and Joe Strummer all rolled into one” by Philadelphia Weekly and a “one man Tarantino flick:
loud, vicious, luridly hilarious, gleefully and deeply offensive” by the Village Voice.
