Brooklyn Based Hank & Cupcakes takes over the Northside Tavern w/ the perfect children, Culture Queer

show at 10PM

Culture Queer

Hank and Cupcakes

The Perfect Children

Flush with simmering sexuality and irresistible dance pulse, Hank & Cupcakes are everything you would not expect them to be. Named in reference to notorious Charles ‘Hank’ Bukowski and one of his lovers ‘Cupcakes’, this Brooklyn based duo by way of Tel Aviv Israel & Melbourne Australia are the coalescence of rock without guitars and pop without synthesizers.

 

 

With their full luscious sound, breathtaking stage personas and the brutal honesty with which they play, Pedal board magician Hank commands an army of pedals with his bass guitar while powerhouse vocalist/drummer Cupcakes dominates the drums standing up while belting out emotive and groove filled vocals, making it difficult to believe there are only two people on stage. Pinpointing down to a certain genre of music is hard with this duo.

 

 

With a recklessness reminiscent of Karen O of Yeah Yeah Yeahs, an early RHCP rawness,  a fun-punk Ting Tings vibe and a ‘The Kills’ raw rock sex appeal, Hank & Cupcakes are the embodiment of all of those, creating a new hybrid of music motivated by true freedom and boundless limits.

 

 

Hailed by MTV as a “Fresh new artist with an infectious blend of electro pop goodness” by Paste Magazine as “Irresistibly Danceable” and as having a “Funky Fresh Sound” by the New York Post, the powerful duo are now honing their explosive live performances in front of audiences as they tour the country in support of their second studio album ‘CA$H 4 GOLD’
