"NOBUNNY IS MY NEW FAVORITE BAND. HOLY SHIT.
If there were ever a band to embody a musical representation of my soul, it would probably be Nobunny. ...Their show at the Knitting Factory last night ...was hands down the best show I have been to all summer, if not since SXSW (perhaps even before). Nobunny himself had a stellar presence and looked absolutely regal in his leather bolero jacket and black skivvies." -[Midwestern Miscreant]
Respect to Nobunny, if for no other reason than being described as "regal" in "black skivvies". Regardless of any official monarchical status though, Nobunny was definitely the king of Knitting Factory on Friday night (7/1). The garage rock band fronted by a crazy bunny headlined the Brooklyn venue with Shellshag as part of a pair of NYC dates with TV Ghost (a late show at Mercury Lounge played out on the following day). Pictures from KF are in this post.
Nobunny is still on the road, playing Baltimore at Golden West tonight (7/5) and eventually hopping his/their way back to California by the end of the month. TV Ghost, who also played Philly with Nobunny, is finished touring for now. Shellshag play Cinders Art Gallery on July 8th. All Nobunny dates and more pictures below...
