Hunx and His Punx - An Unstoppable Force of Gayness
THURSDAY SEPTEMBER 13TH
Blundertown & L.A. RECORD PRESENTS:
Hunx And His Punx // at The Glass House Concert Hall.
Hunx and His Punx is an unstoppable force of gayness. Couple this fact with catchy retro 60's Shangri-Las type songs splashed with a punk patina (and smart lyrics) and you have one of, if not the most, entertaining live musical acts around. Whether he is fawning over the cute security guy or doing something imaginative with a glow stick, Seth Bogart (Hunx) knows how to entertain a crowd. Thankfully, Seth likes to talk a lot. Playing to an all age audience he mostly kept his schtick in his pants / leotard but kept everyone (band included) smiling and laughing in between songs. No one laughed more than Shannon Shaw (from Shannon and the Clams) who along with Michelle Santamaria (former Hunx guitarist) joined with drummer Erin Emslie to be Hunx's Punkettes. Shannon revealed that they all haven't played together for about a year so this reunion of sorts was pretty special and felt so fresh. It was a super fun set of Hunx classics like "You Don't Like Rock and Roll", "Cruising", "Gimme Gimme Back Your Love" and "Bad Boy" as well as newer songs off of Hairdresser Blues like "Private Room.
