Okay, so a variety show involving the likes of Hunx and His Punx's Seth Bogart was always going to be a pansexual trash-fest. As longtime watchers know, any new thing from San Francisco's loudest gay garage-rocker and hair salon/vintage boutique proprietor is basically guaranteed to bring the unholy trinity of groins, glam, and glitter to delightful new lows.

But still: If this first preview of Hunx and Brande Bytheway's new variety show, Hollywood Nailz, is any indication, this project might be the fullest-yet realization of their whole aesthetic. It's too early to say for sure, but with appearances from rockers like King Tuff, King Kahn, Nobunny, and Shannon and the Clams; skits where a gay bartender judge adjudicates disputes between his patrons; fake ads for car-friendly fast-food dipping-sauce holders; Bogart playing a caricature of a gay hairdresser; and a (fake) competition between bands covering America's favorite songs -- well, Hollywood Nailz would seem to hold a lot of promise.

As long as your idea of "promise" includes cheap sets, bad jokes, nasty teeth, disturbing makeup, and semi-nude men being whipped, of course. (But if it doesn't, what are you doing living here?)

The first episode is out next week on the show's website. We can't wait.

  • 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.'"
