NOBUNNY Infiltrates The Rock, Frightens School Children, Disturbs Sound Engineer

NOBUNNY, sans pants.

On Sunday, January 6th, 2013, after a grassroots email campaign to have him added to a bill with Fatlip and soon-to-be-legendary crunkcore quartet BrokeNCYDE, NOBUNNY slithered onto the stage at The Rock half-naked and confronted those who'd most likely misunderstand him: teenage punks.

Don't blame the kids, they were conceived while their parents were listening to Korn. Nevertheless, NOBUNNY's brand of punk rock doesn't fit in with Hot Topic and A Day To Remember. So, in the end, NOBUNNY freaked them out by challenging them to define what they were seeing. A lot of these kids got the joke and loved it; a few were offended and put their down turned thumbs in the air. They were then treated to the song, "NOBUNNY Loves You". It was funny.

NOBUNNY mocked himself, his music, his band, everybody and everything. It was great. When he whined, "Hey Mr. Soundman, how many songs do we have time to play?", the bellowed response was, "I'll give you a hundred dollars to put your pants back on!" So NOBUNNY played a song called "I Am A Girlfriend". When guitarist Bradford Trojan jumped on to top his amplifier for a hilariously long Chuck Berry guitar solo, the aforementioned soundman put a heavenly-white spotlight on him.

The whole experience was thrilling. It was the perfect coup and I was lucky to be there, to see the kind of reaction I only read about in punk history books about the '70's. And then it was over, just as jarring as it began.
