The Hempsteadys + Rusty Things + The Screw-Ups

  • CAFE NINE 250 STATE ST NEW HAVEN CT 06510 (map)


It is not everyday that a band releases a concept album as their debut full length, but The Hempsteadys are anything but conventional. The 11-piece from New London, Connecticut melds the traditional sounds of late ‘60s Jamaica, Motown and early British punk with the modern soul of Daptone Records and reggae rhythms of contemporaries such as The Aggrolites and The Slackers.
