I had back to back nights this week of the louder beer-throwing types. The first show was at Red7 featuring King Tuff as the headliner of a four band blast of in your face southern rock tinged punk. The King brought along Natural Child, who killed as an opener for Hunx, and asked locals The Vomettes and The Best to open.
There was a little crowd surfing towards the end of the night, everyone departing sweaty and satisfied.

Some great shows are sneaking up on us in the middle stretch of July…
The next we’d like to highlight is King Tuff headlining a four band loud-and-fast at Red7 next Monday night. Supporting King Tuff on the tour is Natural Child. They put down a bad ass set opening for Hunx & His Punx at Mohawk a few months back. Really looking forward to seeing them again with a King Tuff chaser.
Also on the bill are The Vomettes and The Best.

The last trip for Hunx in town was a little underwhelming, at least so far as the live show, so I was hoping he could redeem himself on this particular evening, backed by a strong supporting cast of openers.
Read on for my thoughts and the excellent images of one Brian Gray.

Need a little fix of poppy garage rock on Hump Day, then I think you better do your best to make your way over to Mohawk to catch this excellent show! Opener Hunx and His Punx just released Hairdresser Blues on Hardly Art, and it has some of the best songs he’s written to date, not to mention his always entertaining sets. Then you’ll get the heavier, yet equally incredible Natural Child from Nashville, intent upon breaking into our hearts and ears. And opening up the night are two other hot acts in our eyes, Grape Street and The Vomettes. Probably one of the best line-ups I’ve seen in a bit, so be there or be square.
