Local throwback act Hunx And His Punx aren’t your typical ’50s style doo wop group shoop shooping their way through the malt shop. Choice tracks pump up the androgyny in frontman Hunx’s croon, as his saccharine vocals sit atop rich harmonies, crashing drums, and the occasional chop of a guitar. Sure, they’re singing about drive-in movie subject matter, but the film being showed looks more like a Grease porn than typical film fare.
The band recently released their second LP, Street Punk, and though they may have a slightly more subdued sound, catching them live is a whole other story. The band is set to play the Chapel this Monday, October 21. Carletta Sue Kay opens, along with fellow Bay Area group Wet Drag.
