Local/Live: July 9 – The Hatchets

The Hatchets are a rock band from Milwaukee lead by Justin Otto on guitar and vocals. James Sauer, Allen Coté and Nick Lang round out their sound and the group is getting read to release their debut LP The Uncounted Blue Jillions; a concept album of sorts about the porous borders between past and present, both personal and political. The songs deal with despair, aimlessness and loss of identity — all observed through the lens of the life and work of Woody Guthrie.
