PUNK | Hamell on Trial 

Anti-folk storyteller Edward James Hamell is full of dark, comedic anecdotes exploring ideas of discontent with politics, social issues, family, and death. His music is fast, witty, and meant to invoke thoughts of rebellion. Equipped with his vintage 1937 Gibson guitar and side-splitting, obscene rants, Hamell is a force to be reckoned with — he has been described as a "One-man Tarantino flick: loud, vicious, luridly hilarious, gleefully and deeply offensive." Hamell has also been favored by other straight-forward musicians, such as Henry Rollins, Kimya Dawson and Ani DiFranco.

Hamell on Trial performs Friday, June 30, at Funk 'N Waffles, 204 North Water Street. 6 p.m. $10. rochester.funknwaffles.com; hamellontrial.bandcamp.com.
