Hunx and His Punx' "Lovers Lane" Video Is as Grainy and Melodramatic as It Should Be

This feels like the quintessential Hunx and His Punx: Hunx (aka Seth Bogart) prances around on a dingy street corner, gets picked up by a crew of rowdies in a vintage convertible, and heads off to a trashy/classy dance party to perform a song backed by the Punkettes, his all-female band. Love interests are pursued. Heart-shaped balloons make a cameo. And the thing looks like it was all shot on glorious, grainy film. So maybe director Hannah Lew and videographer Renny McCauley did just capture much of what makes this oldies-punk crew from S.F. so damn likeable. In any case, the mythic personas and thrift-store glam are in full bloom here. Check out the clip for "Lovers Lane," below, and see for yourself.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
