Rochester's Haewa can be better described by what it isn't. The group jams, but it isn't a jam band. It circles psychedelic rock, but doesn't get lost in the ether. It's a rock 'n' roll band that doesn't adhere to merely the one, the four, and the five. It's odd, but not intentionally obtuse. Haewa is barely out of the gate. It's a young rock band — roughly two years old — made up of three musicians all roughly 20 years old, but it has a seasoned attitude behind a seasoned sound that belies its age.
Haewa plays Friday, September 6, at Temple Bar and Grill, 109 East Ave. 10 p.m. Free. 232-6000.
