Bunky is the musical project of singer/drummer Emily Joyce and guitarist Rafter Roberts.
Joyce also bartends at the Casbah. She shares this tale about one patron's lack of respect for her band. “All I heard is people complaining all night about how long it takes to get a drink...end of the night, this guy is closing his tab and he's like, ‘hey I have something really funny to tell you…do you remember when Bunky used to be so epic? I booked a show for you guys.’”
“He continues ‘So you played this epic show and I was there and you gave me a kiss after the show.’ I started laughing because I don't remember…well, you never know, sometimes I get wasted and my lips start flapping all and get all loose and I try to make out with everyone. This guy is making me nervous. Sort of. I really can't see me making out with him is all. I pretty much remember all the making out I've done…Then he's all ‘I used to have the biggest crush on you.’ I think, what is this used to be bullshit? Am I supposed to think its quaint? I used to be epic and, now, what?
“On the one hand, I am complimented that anyone knows who I am. Then again, wow, watch how you put things.”
