TORONTO - Porn-rock band Wank Punter is on board to perform at the 8th annual Everything to Do With Sex Show at Toronto's Exhibition Place the weekend of Oct. 19-21.
In addition to the band's show on the Feature Stage Saturday, Oct. 20, they will be hosting a booth on the convention floor throughout the event. KSEX Radio's Tony Batman, Ryder Skye and Regan Anthony will be on hand to greet fans .
Describing themselves as "Frank Zappa meets Cheap Trick over at Van Halen's place with [the] vocal sensibilities of the Beatles," Wank Punter has performed at the legendary Whiskey-A-Go-Go and on Playboy TV's "Night Calls," among other places, and has produced such porn-influenced ditties as "Glory Hole Gloria," "Kirsten Price," "Sex Worker" and "Captain Cockblock."
The Toronto-based band has released two albums since forming in 2005 — "Wank Punter" and "Unlubricated" — and plans a return to the studio following the Everything to Do With Sex Show to record a third, tentatively titled "Plain Brown Paper."
The group is also featured in the November issue of Genesis magazine in a 2-page article by Tim Case Walker, and has wrapped an appearance in a TV drama series about strippers directed by Zalman King of 9 1/2 Weeks, Red Shoe Diaries and Blue Sunshine fame.
"The band played a key role in the episode and our two dancers were offered principal speaking roles as a result," Wank Punter spokesman told AVN. "Best of all, they licensed two songs for the series with more to come."
