PUNK | Hank Wood and the Hammerheads 

Punk band Hank Wood and the Hammerheads describes itself as being, "NYC garage mutants."  The band clearly draws influences from early punk bands like The Stooges, The Clash, and The Sex Pistols — embracing the rough, oftentimes imperfect, sound that defined such bands.  However, Hank Wood makes this sound its own by combining that 70's punk sound with the characteristic intensity and aggressiveness of the hardcore genre. The band released its first LP, "Go Home!" in 2012, and despite rumors of a break-up in 2013, continues to play energetic, raw live shows in 2014.

Hank Wood and the Hammerheads performs with Flip Shit, Lamby, and Tapehead on Monday, May 26, at The Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Avenue. 9 p.m. $6-$8. Bugjar.com.
