Actually, Scotty the Blue Bunny points out he's not an easter bunny at all. He's just your average 6-foot-plus-tall, bearded, 40-something dude in a sparkly blue spandex bunny suit who happens to be the guest star of this Thursday's Easter Alternative at Cherry Lounge and Pit in Tempe. Check out the videos on his MySpace page--the guy is a hoot. He sings! He raps! He dances! He twirls a baton like an 18-year-old drum majorette. It might might not be mom-approved entertainment, but you can always have your fun on Thursday and make up for it on Easter Sunday. Go ahead, Jesus won't mind, especially since some of the proceeds will go to local charity H.E.R.O (Human Equal Rights Organizers).
Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
