Eight Gigs: The Hormones

Sat., Nov. 19, 8 p.m., Starlite Lounge, $10

One thing that we can all agree on about our nation’s current political path: We might be on the doorstep of a punk-rock renaissance. So let’s celebrate the inevitable with a healthy dose of estrogen this Saturday as the all-woman Ramones tribute band the Hormones takes over Starlite Lounge. This Oakland-based group markets itself on its website as both hard-hitting and ass-kicking—the “true Ramones experience with curves!” Given the state of our nation, who doesn’t want to see four bad-ass women perform “The KKK Took My Baby Away,” “Blitzkrieg Bop” and “I Wanna Be Sedated?” 1517 21st Street, www.hormonesband.com.
