Tuesday, Sept 1, 2009 - LNA (Lowtide News Agency) The Bunny Numpkins and the Kill Blow-Up Orchestra, featuring 2/3 of the Happy Clams, plays Kimo's for Jeremy's Birthday.
The Bunny Numpkins and the Kill Blow-Up Reaction (Jeremy, Chrissy, Jason, Leslie, and some guy on drums) were joined by Harlan Hollander (guitar), Joe Rut (drum machine), and Happy Clams members Rawbird (banjo) and Paul Pot (electrified kazoo) to celebrate Jeremy's birthday at Kimos. There may have been more people on stage than there were in the audience. The bright side was that the band was phenomenal and there was plenty of parking because everybody, that you find especially annoying on a summer night, was at Burning Man. The 8 piece wrecking crew was amazingly tight. Later on though, when it was pointed out that the song Lake Elsinore didn't sound like it did at other shows, Jeremy shrugged and said, "Well that may not be how it goes, but that's how it went." Chrissy giggled the whole time and some of it resembled lyrics. Joe Rut said that he played perhaps the best drum machine solo of his career. Harlan Hollander tried to join in on the solo, but it was clear he wasn't machine enough. Jeremy just smiled.
Great fun. Happy Birthday Jeremy!
