It might be easy to dismiss a band whose frontman often performs wearing only a furry rabbit mask and underwear, but don’t. Nobunny is the silly, sleazy persona of garage-punk-rocker Justin Champlin, an occasional Oakland resident (he’s nomadic) and longtime devotee of the late Jay Reatard. Like Reatard, Champlin cranks out garage punk with hyperactive pop rhythms and the destructive impulses of a teenage boy. Nobunny’s live sets are known for being unpredictable and over the top, with a constantly rotating lineup of musicians and a penchant for gags like playing with raw meat and firecrackers onstage. But gimmicks aside, Nobunny has, since 2001, honed a searing, aggressive sound comparable to The Ramones and The Cramps. The raucous, all-ages crowd at 924 Gilman (924 Gilman St., Berkeley) should serve to fuel his fire. With Parasites, Flamingo Nosebleed, Jabber, Pookie, and The Poodlez.
