DOWNLOAD: Hunx & His Punx - Too Young to Be in Love (MP3)

Hunx strikes a pose @ Emo's
Hunx and his Punx

"For "Too Young to Be in Love," part-time hairdresser Hunx, born Seth Bogart, joined forces with Shannon Shaw, lead singer of the Bay Area garage band Shannon and the Clams, whose gutsy backup vocals helped take the band's sound to the next level.

"She has one of my favorite voices," Hunx said last week via phone. "It's kind of hard playing up against her because she's so powerful. In the past, I tried to be super girly, but now I can be deeper and the girls can go crazy."" [LA Times]

Download the retro sounds of "Too Young to Be in Love" above.

As you know, and then were reminded of along with a new video, friends and collaborators Hunx & His Punx and Shannon & the Clams (who both played a BV party at SXSW) are now out on tour, a tour that hits Cake Shop on 4/20 with Davila 666 and Glasslands on 4/23 with the K-Holes and Grass Widow (Davila 666 are at Knitting Factory that night).

Tuesday night, 4/12, Tim stopped by Emo's and caught opener Fungi Girls and Shannon, but actually missed Hunx's set while watching the Raveonettes and Tamaryn in the other room. Hunx was understanding about it though and posed for the above picture, and for some more which you can see with other shots from the Austin show, below...

So excited for this show. You homophobes can stay home and eat my shit (which you'd probably love, you sick fucks)

@642, how will that be possible? Will you drop off your shit on the way to the show? Or are we expected to procure this shit on our own somehow?

This isn't a band. It's a shtick. Clearly. Yet, if I called it a gay schtick, I'm a homophobe.

did you guys hear? they found hunxs' testosterone at a camp in western samoa.

good thing rappers aren't going to this show.

2 reasons why:

1. they would shoot everybody because they are violently homophobic.

OR

2. they'd join in because they're all secretly homos, thus destroying their street, uh, "cred".

10:43 is way ahead of 8:31 so that he can be properly mounted from behind.

I'm not homophobic. I just don't like being around gay people because they're always trying to have sex with me.
