Hunx & His Punx

"by the time HUNX AND HIS PUNX went on, i was kind of really wasted and my dance moves weren't as sharp. my hat was slipping all over the place and i felt sloppy. but whatever! that's what it's all about, right? anyway, hunx was wearing pantyhose as pants with thong underwear underneath and a shear jacket on top. he was amazing, and he and his punx all had matching blade runner stripes drawn across their eyes. the crowd was so fucking into it, and i wished that i hadn't worn my hat so i could have jammed out even harder. they finished their set a little after midnight, which surprised me. i thought i wasn't going to be heading home until after two. i grabbed the free beer that the bartender promised me and then i went home. my ears are still ringing! "
[Randall, reviewing the Cake Shop show]
After an opening set by Vivian Girls side project The Babies, Hunx & His Punx headlined Cake Shop on 10/16, the same night as BBQ and King Khan & The Shrines shows took place in different places around NYC. If you opted for BBQ or King Khan instead that night you're in luck; Hunx & His Punx, previously billed as "secret special guest", will play the Hardly Art CMJ showcase on 10/21 at Shea Stadium with Xray Eyeballs, Golden Triangle, Circle Pit, La Sera, Fergus & Geronimo, and Woven Bones. The announcement comes with the news that Hunx & His Punx have signed to Hardly Art, who will release their new LP in 2011.

In related news, another artist on the Hardly Art bill, La Sera (aka Kickball Katy of the Vivian Girls) will hit the high seas with as part of a Pabst Blue Ribbon yacht party tomorrow from 2PM-6PM. Tweet at PBR_Brooklyn if you want on, but beware that the show has a "tight list". You can also catch La Sera at Irving Plaza tonight and Saturday night at the PureVolume House with Teen Inc.

Golden Triangle have a few CMJ dates in their warpath, as does fellow Hardly Art showcasers X-Ray Eyeballs (mems of GT) who will also play Don Pedro's the same night as their Shea Stadium show as part of the Impose series of shows.

King Khan reportedly joined (or was planning on joining) XRay Eyeballs on stage at Death By Audio Sunday night. Some joyous videos of the King Khan & the Shrines show at Santos (Darren Mabee included), and a recent live Hunx and His Punx video (naked people included) (NSFW), below...

That topless lady is trying way too hard to get into Hunx trunks and I don't understand it because I just don't understand women.

^ don't stress out too much as I'm not sure the term "rockstar" even exists. Nerds, of course, thankfully do.
