Video: Hunx and his Punx // “Lovers Lane”. This video is getting a lot of buzz, but I also wanted to share it because it’s such a Bay Area love-fest, taking you on a ride through Waldo Tunnel, better known as the Rainbow Tunnel. The video was directed by the wonderful Hannah Lew of Grass Widow. I interviewed Grass Widow back in 2009 for the SF Chronicle and briefly discussed with Hannah Lew her film-making projects and she noted she always shoots in 8mm. (Read the full article here.)

Hunx and his Punketes // Lovers Lane. This week Hunx and his Punx dropped the full-length Too Young To Be In Love via Hardly Art. The record was recorded in New York City by Ivan Julian (founding member of Richard Hell and the Voidoids). Shannon Shaw (of Shannon and the Clams) wrote three of the songs on the track, and “Lovers Lane” showcases her powerful vocals. Hunx and his Punkette’s are playing an album release show this Saturday (4/2) with Shannon and the Clams and Grass Widow. After the show, the band goes on a national tour with Shannon and the Clams.
