A skimasked Nobunny at Otto's Shrunken Head, 9/20/2012
Last night at East Village tiki bar Otto's Shunken Head, Sailor Jerry presented a night of garage bubblegum insanity with Nobunny, The Tough Shits and Bad Sports. Nobunny apparently misplaced his disturbing rabbit mask and performed with a skimask instead. Needless to say, the rum-fueled show was wild and sweaty. We've got a few pictures from his set in this post.
UPDATE: The Tough Shits didn't play, word is they couldn't get off work. It's tough being a band, these days.
Hopefully Nobunny has found his mask since, as he and Bad Sports play NYC again tonight (9/21) at Living Bread Deli (2 Knickerbocker) with Xray Eyeballs and Liquor Store. Nobunny and Bad Sports continue their tour Philly tomorrow (9/22) and cross the finish line at next weekend's Gonerfest.
If you haven't checked out Bad Sports, who are Nobunny's backing band on this tour, their 2011 Kings of the Weekend album is sneery, shoutalong punk a la the Ramones or early Damned and can be streamed below via Spotify. All remaining Nobunny/Bad Sports dates are listed below.

More pictures from that show are below.
