Wax! Crackle! Pop! #68: Tina Lucchesi! She’s So Tuff

Monday, June 15


Folks, we’ve got a San Francisco living legend in the hot seat for this one. The Bay Area has produced some of the most livliest and raunchiest rock n roll for decades now. The “budget” punk rock scene here that emerged out of the late 80’s is among the most influential worldwide and if a single lady were appointed Queen of such a scene, Tina “Boom Boom” Lucchesi would undoubtedly be it. Playing in a zillion bands over the last 20+ years that include The Trashwomen, The Glamour Pussies, Top Ten, The Bobbyteens and most recently Cyclops, Tina rules it pretty hard. And let’s not forget subscribing to the true DIY aesthetic of running her own label, making records, t-shirts, countless flyers and all the thankless long hours that go into that. She is also owner of the hip hair salon and vintage clothing store Down At LuLu’s in Oakland! Listen how Tina does it all right here.
