San Francisco's Hunx and His Punx"the first-ever girl group' fronted by a flamboyant gay male whose dream in life is to sound like a girl," per their label's remarkably thorough descriptionplayed the Mercury Lounge earlier this month, not long into an American tour that concludes this weekend at the Knitting Factory. Even if you caught 'em last time, though, they're worth seeing again, thanks to the scrappy-sweet garage-pop gems on this year's Too Young to Be in Love and to the band's appealingly randy stage presence. "I gotta boner in the backseat," Hunx tweeted last week. Good to know, right?
