Live Music Tonight: Hawk and a Hacksaw at Solar Culture

Posted By on Tue, Mar 1, 2011 at 1:56 PM

From Gene Armstrong's article previewing tonight's Hawk and a Hacksaw show:

The tour that brings A Hawk and a Hacksaw to Tucson will feature a scaled-back version of the band. In addition to Barnes and Trost, a trumpeter and doumbek player will be in attendance, Barnes says.

The band's extended compositions are rich and cinematic, with different sections of tunes often conjuring up scenes from an imagined movie.

"That's the idea: It's kind of to tell a story," Barnes says. "We want to give visuals through the music that provide details of a story, but also leave it up to the interpretation of the listener. Some of the songs I love the most are instrumentals, or songs sung in a language I don't understand. That makes me picture things in my head that I would never think about otherwise. We don't often use English when there are lyrics, because I don't want our music to be limited to people who only speak the English language."


"The Man Who Sold His Beard":

"I Am Not a Gambling Man":

A Hawk and a Hacksaw perform at Solar Culture tonight with Amy Rude opening. The show is all ages, starts at 9 pm, and admission is $10.
