The Von Bondies (featuring local musician Christy Hunt) to perform on Letterman Monday, February 9th.

One of the Twin Cities' favorite badass girl guitar players Christy Hunt (of Ouija Radio) will be playing with the Von Bondies Monday night on the Late Show with David Letterman. The band will perform "Pale Bride" off the Von Bondie's new album Love Hate and Then There's You.

Here's more from the press release:

"This appearance by the Michigan-based band--JASON STOLLSTEIMER (lead vocals, guitars), DON BLUM (drums), LEANN BANKS (bass) and CHRISTY HUNT (guitars)--precedes the February 12 launch of their 2009 tour.

STOLLSTEIMER’s newest batch of songs, as well as BLUM’s co-writes, were penned over the past few years and recorded sporadically during that period. Producers Butch Walker (Hot Hot Heat, The Donnas, All-American Rejects) and Rick Parker (Black Rebel Motorcycle Club) fine-tuned the recordings."

There are no Minneapolis dates on the current leg of the tour of the U.S. and Canada w/ special guests Nico Vega that kicks off February 12th in London, Ontario and wraps up March 30th in Chicago at Schuba's. But we'll keep you posted.

Why would you announce a Von Bondies show "Featuring Christy Hunt" and then post an old picture of the VBs with the original members from years ago? There are many pictures out there of the VBs with Christy and Leann!
