Haymaker in Costa Mesa
Long Beach's Haymaker is playing the Westside Bar & Grill tomorrow night at 9 p.m. Normally I'd post this on the day of the show, but I hate last-minute notices, so don't say you didn't have ample time.
Haymaker is a four-piece that plays twangy Americana rock that sometimes gets labeled alt-country. I'm not one for labels, so check out their tunes and you can decide where their discs should be stocked at your local record store.
Singer/guitarists J.W. and Mike Bay trade off lead vocals, and unlike others who try this, Haymaker doesn't lose a step when each takes the mic. And regardless of who's singing, you're getting something close to a modern day Creedence Clearwater Revival, which is to say they're catchy and (I can't believe I'm about to type this), a lil bit country and a lil bit rock 'n' roll.
The best part is...it's FREE!!!!!!!
The Westside Bar & Grill is located at 512 W. 19th St.
