Hank and Cupcakes

Doors: 6 pm | Show: 7 pm | All Ages Show | No Audio or Video | General Admission Seating | All Sales Are Final

Flush with simmering sexuality and irresistible dance pulse, Hank & Cupcakes are the coalescence of rock without guitars, pop without synthesizers, everything you would NOT expect them to be. Named in reference to notorious Charles ‘Hank’ Bukowski and one of his lovers ‘Cupcakes’, this Atlanta based duo by way of Brooklyn NY, Tel Aviv Israel & Melbourne Australia defy modern rock-pop expectations with their full luscious sound, breathtaking stage personas and the brutal honesty with which they play.

Pedalboard 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. 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 third album ‘CHEAP THRILL’.
