Hunx & His Punx share tunes from “Hairdresser Blues”

Hunx & His Punx shared two tracks this weekend from their upcoming Hardly Art release, Hairdresser Blues. The group’s second LP is due out tomorrow, February 28. That’s the video for “Private Room” above, and “Always Forever” is embedded via Soundcloud below. Personally, I already enjoy both of these tracks more than Too Young To Be In Love, which was essentially a transition album. All those early singles had been recorded with a rotating cast of characters, and by the time they got to a full-length, it sounded like a Shannon & the Clams record with Seth singing over top of it. This sounds more like a melding of the two sounds.

Only 12 hours left to register for the Scion Garage Fest

garage-fest-flierAt 11:59 p.m., Pacific Daylight Time, the RSVP page for the Scion Garage Fest closes. Your chance to see scads of amazing bands for free will end, and you’ll have to listen to everyone else talk about how they got to see the Clean for free in Lawrence.

The line-up for the Saturday, October 2, festival keeps changing (Guitar Wolf was originally on the bill and the Raveonettes weren’t), but the core acts (the Oblivians, the Gories, Hunx, et al) seem to be holding steady. Somebody’s already posted a tentative list of set times and venues over at the Goner Records board, so you can start planning as to whether you’re going to see the Gories or King Khan & the Shrines.

In related news, the Spook Lights have organized an all-local show to present some bands that are getting shunted aside, like Fag Cop, Wayne Pain & the Shit Stains, Strong Smells, and themselves at the Replay Lounge that same day. So, for those of you who either don’t want to participate in the corporate-sponsored hullabaloo or simply want to get away from the crowds, there’ll be that show to hit, as well.
