The plan to not do a thing last night was thrown out the window upon hearing that Captured By Robots was playing at The Rhythm Room. I had seen CBR once before and vowed to never miss a show when they came through town. To make it simple, Fucking Incredible. No shit, I don't use a phrase like that lightly, it's a mind blower. One man, eight robots, and a set list that included original biblical themed death metal, a classic simply called Let's Get High, and old favorites you can sing along with such as a stellar rendition of Bad Brains "Attitude", English Beat's "I Melt With You", S&G's "Bridge Over Troubled Water" and a little "We Are The Champions" to round it out. Aside from the genius it must take to build, transport and operate a band of MUSIC PLAYING ROBOTS! Jbot, the band's front man and prisoner of the other bots, can shred him an axe. I'm not sure why Jbot and his band are not more widely known, but I have a feeling that Justin Beiber kid is in on it somehow.
Oh, and I want to be sure to mention
The Death Metal Ruled!
GTRBOT doing his thing Happy Birthday Geoff, dig the shirt
