Not a word of a lie, the Nobunny show was the most fun I've had in a dog's age. I sang, I danced and I pogo-ed with a crowd who unlike the usual cold Toronto welcome, threw Nobunny into their eager arms and couldn't have been any closer to the action. At one point, the singer/Nobunny himself had to sheepishly ask the crowd to move back a little; not to stop anyone's good time but it was getting awful hot in the Parts & Labour basement (also called, "The Shop") and if we kept up our advances he'd have to perform perched on top of the drums and well, that wouldn't be nearly as fun as having him run around while everyone sang along at the top of their lungs. If you haven't gotten a chance to see Nobunny live, you really should. His songs are a perfect mix of low-fi garage, bubblegum and punk, with his live set even more frenetic than his recorded releases. Not that they are lacking in energy...anything but. However, seeing Nobunny live is seeing and hearing the energy right in front of you...leather jacket, underwear, bunny mask and all.
