It List: Monday
Punk Bunny/Andrew Burntette (The Lounge): It would be hard for Punk Bunny to top the show they played on Friday night; the lineup, the setting, the crowd, even the music between acts was so appropriate, it bordered on being absurd. Not to mention the fact that much of it was willfully absurd. Punk Bunny was even more of a spectacle this time around, with prepared videos accompanying their songs, and choreographed dance moves by three men in lingerie. Even the most hardened punk rocker I know had to crack a smile.
The Lounge on a Monday night is certainly the opposite of Mabel Peabody's on a Friday, but I don't know of a group more capable of having a good time in spite of the weeknight odds. Opening act Andrew Burnette is a touring member of Punk Bunny, but the self-described "electronic softcore" of which his solo project consists is undoubtedly more of a subtle ride.
