Pink Mink: Band to watch

Well, this development certainly bodes well for local music fans... Thanks to LOL/OMG for turning us on to new local band Pink Mink, which we immediately recognized as a conglomeration of some uber-talented local musicians: Christy Hunt (the Von Bondies, Ouija Radio) and Arzu Gokcen (Selby Tigers, Strut and Shock) share Pink Mink vocal and guitar duties, with omnipresent local producer Jaques Wait on bass and Hunt's husband and Ouija Radio bandmate Charles Gehr on drums.
The band already has some live footage posted from their "first show ever" at Honey last week, and it's a tribute to local artist Scott Seekins titled -- what else? -- "Seekin' Scott Seekins."
We like it, we really like it!
Pink Mink are playing their second show ever this Saturday, May 15, at the Grumpy's Backyard BBQ in Northeast during Art-A-Whirl. They perform at 6 p.m., in the midst of a great lineup. Check the flyer for all the details:
