Concert Reviews

Hunx and His Punx at the hi-dive, 5/7/11

Lust-Cats of the Gutters • Thee Goochi Boiz • Shannon and the Clams
05.07.11 | hi-dive

Almost literally straight off of a roughly sixteen-day of tour, Lust-Cats of the Gutters would have been excused for showing some of that fatigue in its set. But, instead, Alex Edgeworth and Robin Edwards played with the raw verve they always seem to be able to bring to each show. If anything, the tour seems to have honed the act's knack for making an unfettered expression of unfiltered emotions -- joy, frustration, desperation, affection -- seem like a necessary catharsis.
