Hunnypot Live #379


We made it back just in time from our overseas shoplifting trip and started the two part celebration of 12 years of Hunnypot Live! Hot Tub Johnnie stole our ears and hearts with a criminally great set of music to start the night. Steven Briggs funny boned us, long time Hunnypot hero John Cate gave a star studded and studly song farewell to LA performance before he books back to Boston, Paper Chains gave us strong bonds of beats, Pom Poms joined us in the hot tub for an interview early and then took the stage to Pom Pummeled us with rock n roll, Serena Foster adopted us all in to her musical dance cult and Grace Blue blew us away with their electronic duo dancing music. No Anniversary is complete without a closing dance party and we did just that.  11/13/2017

paper chains

Paper Chains

Paper Chains is an indie pop band from Los Angeles featuring Stereo Diamonds and Jonnyontherocks.

Stereo Diamonds’ (known as a stylist/creative director for Conquer Loud) sexy but smart vocals cut through battling guitars and synths over driving dance rock beats. This wall of sound is created live, without pre-recorded tracks giving the band freedom to push musical boundaries at any time.

Jonnyontherocks (known for his band Rocky Business and production of BC Kingdom) writes and produces perfection with this project.

Pom Poms

The world of her music is the important point. Her songs begin and end, as all songs must, but they never truly vanish. They are, in some respect, like the bubbles in that second glass (just arrived) of champagne—rising, rising, and rising just once more until they empty into the air and become, well, the atmosphere we breathe. Yes, Pom Poms make that. It is neither nostalgic nor new. It is not retro or future. It is music outside of linear measurement. Yes, it is timeless. And isn’t that the ultimate goal? Take “Betty,” for example. “The minute we finished writing ‘Betty’ we knew something was special about that song,” says Marlene Gold of Pom Poms, the “we” referring to her songwriting partner and producer Billy Mohler. “We were so proud of ourselves. We can churn out a lot of songs. We have that wonderful dynamic of just being inspired by each other. But when ‘Betty’ came around, we were like, ‘What are we going to do with this? We’ve got to do something with this song!”  The entire world of Pom Poms was built, if not in a day, then out from that moment ‘Betty” was born. The mercurial task of harnessing a sound so distinctive so soon in the life of a group (let’s not call them a band) is rare. So the two of them raced to follow that white rabbit around every turn in the magic maze. All was possible. Things were clicking into place. But we’re getting ahead of ourselves.  “A tree fell on my car,” recalls Marlene. “I was done. I didn’t know what was left. That’s when I decided I would create something only if I felt like it. That became my motto. ‘I am going to do this only because I want to.’ I was going to put myself into everything. Wherever I was going to land, I was going to land. I just needed to survive. I had no choice.”
