After over a year of waiting and drooling in anticipation of the next Hoon show, I must say: it was definitely worth the wait.
It was a spectacle to see so many supporters of Hoon gathered in a single room. Although there was rain and thunder outside, the electricity and atmosphere generated by 200+ Hoon fans inside the Uni Bar created, possibly, one of the best shows of 2019..
You had to be there.
Perfect openers for the night. A generous mix between Rock and Reggae. Smooth bass lines grooving to solid beats, a wailing synth, and plenty of smiles. I like when you can tell a band is enjoying just being up on stage and playing their music. A very wholesome experience filled with genuine, easy listening tunes.
A new up-and-coming ‘The Runaways’-esque Rock n’ Roll band. Homewrecker are gaining traction and gearing up to spread their wings. With a gutsy as fuck bass tone that truly stands out and an enthusiastic attitude, Homewrecker can easily scratch your dirty Rock n’ Roll itch. It’s great to see people so young getting up on stage and getting their name out there.

Naughty Naughty And The Good Boys
The always energetic, hyper blues band, ‘Naughty Naughty’, have been screaming and crawling on the floor like an angry toddler for a while now. What a high paced, scummy performance of great music. Always entertaining and engaging, they charge through their set with complete dis-regard for property, audience, and themselves.
Fucken’ Space Boys. Where do I start? A humble group of jolly chaps absolutely ripping up the Uni Bar with their fuzzy, down right dirty tunes. A sweaty, slipping, sliding, front man sharing the mic with the crowd, engaging, and including the audience. Space Boys always create a memorable atmosphere. Whether you’re seeing them for the first time or for the 50th time, they always make you feel like you’ve been mates for years.
Well… It finally happened. The highly anticipated comeback show from one of the most creative, insightful, and inspirational bands to ever come out of Wollongong. Forever unpredictable. Never average. Hoon have always put their ALL into every show. However, they have truly topped it off with this one.
A brilliant, chaotic fusion of emotion, talent, and ambition. Hoon’s music is a push and pull between wonder and satisfaction. It actually hurts how good their songwriting is. But it’s not just that. They’re a gift from the heavens. Not of this world. Every single member fits perfectly into the meticulously designed unit that is Hoon. It’s only function: Take Over The World. They’re doing their best but need our help.
Please support all Hoon endeavours (like you weren’t going to anyway) and keep them creating.
