Hank and Cupcakes at Bardot May 5
If you didn't get wasted, riot-slash-dance, lose your underpants, and do something shameful February 17, 2011, you weren't partying with electro-raunch tag team Hank & Cupcakes at Bardot.
Don't ever make that mistake again. Especially this Thursday when these hot pop junkies return for a rerun of February's sloppy sonic energy explosion. Still sweaty from a SXSW spree, the Brooklyn duo will perform its sixth show here in a 28-city sprint, zipping from Philly to Hotlanta to Houston and back to NYC.
Now as a rule, Hank & Cupcakes' modus operandi is NSFW. They might be married. "We are best friends, husband and wife, music partners, everything," the pair says. But they also don't mind getting ripped, raw, and a little weird. So expect spilled drinks, half-naked hipsters, and sexy group sing-alongs to dirty nu-disco cuts such as "Ain't No Love" and "Hit."
It's gonna get intense. Or as Cupcakes prefers to say, "We're gonna melt your panties, so bring a spare!"
