Described as Hell’s Angels meets the Amish, Lucy Tight and Wayne Waxing of Hymn for Her have been busy touring across the country with their juiced-up backwoods country blues and are headed back to Midcoast Maine. The duo will perform a concert Thursday, Aug. 8, at 7:30 p.m. at Unity College Center for the Performing Arts, 42 Depot St.; and a club gig beginning 8 p.m. Friday, Aug. 9, at Billy’s Tavern in Thomaston.

Tickets for the Unity College Center concert are $10 in advance, $12 at the door; free for Unity College students, faculty and staff. Cover charge for Billy’s 21-and-older show is $5.

The duo covers a broad musical territory, a wild-eyed mash-up of country, blues and punk that has drawn comparisons to such diverse bands as Captain Beefheart, Primus, X, R.L. Burnside, JS Blues Explosion and the Ramones.

The two create their unique sound with only a few instruments. Waxing, mainly playing the kick-drum, high-hat, acoustic guitar and harp, serves as the group’s rhythmic driving force; while Tight delivers a gritty squall on her Lowebow, a custom-made cigar-box guitar. With their daughter Diver, Manny the nanny and Pokey, their spirit guardian dog, this little self-contained unit enjoys life’s unknown adventures on the highway.
