Down at the Hatch

Though the band labels itself as nothing more than "big dumb rock," LYNAM, a Birmingham, Ala., based rock band, has a history with Covington.

Jacob, David and Mark Lynam are gearing up for their second trip to Covington's Down the Hatch and they're hoping for the same results as the first time around.

"Covington was amazing the last time we played there," said lead guitarist and vocalist Jacob. "The show was sold out. Covington is definitely a town for live music."

LYNAM is set to go on stage at Down the Hatch on April 18 with two opening acts set to go on before the headliners.

Tickets for the show are on sale now at Down the Hatch. They can be purchased for $10 in advance and $12 at the door.

"We fully expect this show to be sold out as well," said drummer David.

According to the band's Web site, LYNAM is "this generation's answer to the joy and excess and exhilaration of bands like Guns N-Roses and Motley Crue." In their debut album, "On Slave to the Machine," LYNAM draws inspiration from the music of Bon Jovi, AC/DC and the Foo Fighters.

"We just play big dumb rock," David said. "It's not flying over anybody's head."

LYNAM has a sweeping range of experience from opening for such acts as God Smack, Warrant and Cinderella to playing a chicken wing joint in Alabama.

LYNAM's show at Down the Hatch will feature the band's own music along with what they described as some tunes probably everyone will recognize.

The bands biggest piece of advice for those considering attending is to just come out and see the show.

"This is how we make our living," David said. "Come to the show because, trust me, you don't want us flipping burgers at McDonald's."
