“Mama, We’re All Okilly Dokilly Now”: The Simpsons, Music And Donuts at The Trunk Space

Last Saturday Phoenix’s premier (and only) Ned Flanders heavy “nedal” group Okilly Dokilly had their first ever show at The Trunk Space. Yours truly was there as part of the Springfield Elementary School Carnival happening in the Trunk’s back-lot. There was bowling, trivia, caricature drawing, three card monty, donuts and fortune-telling (done by yours truly and Ernesto Moncada).

The show was crazy packed! The last time I saw the Trunk THAT packed was when Lightning Bolt came to town and gave us all tinnitus. The audience seemed really into it, and fun was had by all. Here are some photos from that fan-diddly-tastic evening: the uncredited photos are my own; the other pictures are sourced from Flim Springfield and Phoenix New Times’ coverage of the event. If you’re a local and you missed it, fear not: The Neds will be slapping us all with their Left Hand of Darkness at The Rebel Lounge on Sept. 25th.
