“Hot or not” doesn’t exist in punk. There is no such thing as not being “punk” enough. It doesn’t matter what you look like, if you’re a seasoned musician or not, or what story you have to tell, but punk music, I believe, is about the passion it takes to break down your own walls in order to tear down the walls of a bigger issue. This is how we connect with the world, and each other, through music.
Lenny Zenith has opened for Iggy Pop and U2, worked with Jenifer Convertible and Tenderhooks, and has been called “one of the genre’s first true transgender rock stars” by OUT Magazine. And what blows my mind is that no matter where you are, what kind of venue you are standing in, whether you are about to see a chart-topping singer or a group of people who have been quietly rocking out for years, good music is everywhere. Experiences where you feel the power and charisma of live music are everywhere, you just have to find them.
And if you’re lucky enough, they’ll find you.
