Burger Boogaloo 2012 part 1: Shannon & the Clams, Heavy Cream, Nobunny, Hunx & his Punx

Meeeeow! Or whatever sound it is a leopard makes... Nashville's Heavy Cream played second at the Bottom of the Hill on Wednesday for the first of MANY Burger Boogaloo events this week. Jessica (pictured here) prowled around the stage singing, screaming and spitting into a fury of hard rockin' milky goodness. Shannon & the Clams kicked it all off. Cody (aka King Lollipop) delivered the Buddy Holly meets Mortimer Mouse treasures. Nobunny held the third position (and his left nipple). The bunny can't be stopped. He continues to churn out buckets of Ramones-esque ditties but with his signature nipple twist. [...]

Hunx & His Punx, NOBUNNY, Heavy Cream, and Shannon and the Clams at Bottom of the Hill tonight, March 21st

Tonight Oakland's retro rock-and-roll contingent will commandeer one of San Francisco's dearest music venues, and it will be served with a side of punk, and it will be awesome. Hot on the heels of a pair of new solo music videos, which we've written about here and here, Hunx will be reunited with his Punx at Bottom of the Hill, and Shannon and the Clams, whose charismatic frontwoman lends her gravelly croon to Hunx, will be the first to kick off the grittier-than-the-50s lineup. NOBUNNY will precede the headliner to round out the trio of Bay Area nostalgics, and Nashville's [...]

Review & Photos: Nobunny, Bongwater & Black Swans, 1/24/12 – 1/25/12

"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel." - Hunter S. Thompson No, this photo is not from last week's show at 1-2-3-4 Go! Records. It was all ages after all and Nobunny kept his clothes on. The room was completely packed and no one was safe from the moshing, flying jackets and projectile vomit. The short set ripped through much of the Nobunny catalog including the signature "Boneyard" and "I am a Girlfriend". The grande finale was a fueled up version [...]

Elvis Christ – “Wild at Heart”

Oakland's Elvis Christ will be releasing the band's debut 7" on 1-2-3-4 Go! Records soon, and "Wild at Heart" is upbeat garage pop with an endearing sentiment: "I'm wild at heart, but I'm doing the best I can." Says the label: Rock'n'roll savior from the heavens below! EC is the rotten lo-fi rock'n'roll brainchild of Jason Testasecca. JT is half of "Mandy & Jason" who's tape you may have heard from Burger Records, a touring member of the Nobunny band in various roles at various times and recording engineer to the stars (Midnight Snaxxx, Goochi Boiz and many others). Get [...]

Noise Pop Review: Battlehooch, Nobunny, The Exray’s and The Downer Party

Blame the weatherman. Even though people kept going to Bottom of the Hill's rear courtyard and disappointingly peering up into the cloudless, snow-free sky hoping for a once-in-a-lifetime show, the real show was going on inside. After The Downer Party's poppy, riot girl-inspired punk rock opened the night, San Francisco's own Exray's took the stage. Nominally a duo but performing as a three piece, Exray's have a unique live setup. Instead of a drummer, their percussion is handled entirely by someone playing an electronic drum machine. Interestingly, for the majority of the set, the "drummer" used naturalistic drum sounds and [...]
