Once or twice a year, Buck Love & the Humperheads go acoustic.

The time for the band to unplug equipment is this Friday and Saturday at Kirby’s Creekside in Nevada City.

Members want to be known for doing songs in a variety of ways.

“Songs will become more bouncy, done in a different motif,” said Humperheads’ Mikail Graham.

Expect covers such as “Wild Horses” and “Life During Wartime,” and originals by band members, such as Paul Kamm’s “Black Sarah” or “Lost In America.”

The high-energy dance tunes the Humperheads are known for can be heard at 6:15 p.m. Sunday at John Olmsted’s benefit at Center for the Arts in Grass Vally.

The Humperheads are Tom MacDonald on vocals, guitar and percussion; Graham and Kamm on vocals and guitar; Billy Smart, electric bass and vocals; Dave Smith, keyboards; and Mark Yedinack, trap drums and percussion.

As for the identity of Buck Love, band members are mum on that subject.

“I can’t tell,” Graham said, smiling. “It’s top secret, like nuclear secrets.”

Kirby’s is at 101 Broad St. Music will start at 8 p.m. both nights. There’s no cover.

Call 265-3445 for more information.
