Hunx and His Punx Take Their Act on the Road


Hunx and His Punx is like a modern gay Everly Brother with an entourage of three hot vixens singing raunchy doo-wop back up vocals. Whatever it is these punk darlings featuring Seth Bogart as Hunx, and four lovely ladies – or “punkettes – are doing comes together in a reckless display of playful lamentation. Their first album release, Too Young to be In Love offers 10 oldies style songs about heartbreak masked by the freedom of youth. The music and their stage antics as seen in the video for “Bad Boy” begs for a sweaty house show or a dingy dive bar small enough so as to gyrate on your neighbor. There’s a chance to do just that at one of the shows listed below, so go, dance, and find an angsty Johnny Angel of your very own.

Hunx And His Punx Announce 2011 Tour, Release Single For Debut Album


Hunx and His Punx, that mixture of 50s teenage rock n roll, 60s girl groups and bubblegum pop, are finally releasing a proper album after 2009’s Gay Singles LP (Matador/True Panther Sounds), which was a collection of hard-to-find and out-of-print 7″ singles. The Album, Too Young To Be In Love, has a release date of March 29, 2011 through Hardly Art. The foursome will take their “Deliciously trashy homoerotic pop” (Pitchfork) on the road in April after a date at SXSW.
