Tonight Oakland’s retro rock-and-roll contingent will commandeer one of San Francisco’s dearest music venues, and it will be served with a side of punk, and it will be awesome. Hot on the heels of a pair of new solo music videos, which we’ve written about here and here, Hunx will be reunited with his Punx at Bottom of the Hill, and Shannon and the Clams, whose charismatic frontwoman lends her gravelly croon to Hunx, will be the first to kick off the grittier-than-the-50s lineup. NOBUNNY will precede the headliner to round out the trio of Bay Area nostalgics, and Nashville’s Heavy Cream, who goes on second, will provide the filling.
According to the Hardly Art website, Hunx said of the new record, Too Young To Be In Love, “I only write songs out of heartbreak.” Then break our hearts, Hunx. Break our hearts tonight.
Tickets are available at the venue’s website for $12 a pop, and the show starts at 9 pm. Presented by the Burger Boogaloo, this show is a precursor to the weekend’s three-day mini music festival taking place at Thee Parkside.
