$22 + $3 convenience fee
All proceeds benefit Thurston Community Media

Having shared stages with The Mick Fleetwood Blues Band, .38 Special and The Little River Band, Hurts Like Hell is dedicated to creating an electrifying, all-original rock and blues sound that draws on the rich history of our rock forefathers of the sixties and seventies – Jeff Beck, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, the Allman Brothers, ZZ Top, Robin Trower and Bo Diddley. Sharing more than a century of experience performing professionally, the four band members have forged their authentic sound through a shared musical vision, a relentless passion for creating music and the use of increasingly rare vintage gear.

Hurts Like Hell was honored with the 2011-2012 Weekly Volcano Best of Olympia Award for "Best Blues Band".
