Show Review - Nobunny - 31st Street Pub - 7/7/11 - Concert Review - Live Review
After local opener Secret Tomb, Nobunny finally appeared. Arm-in-arm with an entourage of short-shorted girls, he strolled through the crowd wearing a too-small leather jacket, black underwear with no pants or shoes (why not?), and his familiar bunny face. Nobunny has been touring hard and non-stop, which at some point along the way has robbed Nobunny’s mask of its twitchy nose—so his strange human nose was visible. At least the cute, grungy ears remained. Seriously grungy.
And the show was a blast! Nobunny played a mix of punk crossed with 60s pop from all three of his albums, including his newest, First Blood. “Blow dumb” and “Ain’t it a shame” from the new albums were great, and crowd favorites “I am a girlfriend” and “It’s true” sounded even better live than recorded. The music drew a good sized crowd into an enthusiastic frenzy at the front of the stage—something between a dance party and a mosh pit. The band was surprisingly tight and chock full of energy. Like their albums, the set was short and the crowd wanted more. Hopefully Nobunny will be back soon at 31st –it was the perfect spot for this show.
