Robots seem to be all the rage these days so it was only a matter of time before there was a band made up of robots. If this intrigues you, come on out to The 7th Street Entry on Friday, October 19th for the Captured! By Robots concert. 

2 kick ass robots, 1 stupid human. Brutal pummeling music. End of story. But you wanna read more stupid crap? Ok, idiot human.

C!BR has been touring the world since 1997, playing thousands of dive bars for millions of drunk humans. In 1996, Jay Vance made the robots because he was extremely unlikeable, and wanted to play in a band after all his past human bands hated him. He got to work. Shortly after, GTRBOT666 and DRMBOT 0110 were born. After a horrible accident involving many drugs and a chemical spill, the Bots became self aware and captured the human, now renamed JBOT. It was decided that they would travel the country, rocking out while bent on world domination and humiliating the masked and chained idiotic human in front of his human peers.

As well, JBOT’s mask was removed, after 15 years of captivity removal of the mask serves to show how ugly and disgusting the human JBOT really is. The Bots and JBOT’s relationship has changed, now they are much more united in hating humanity. Stockholm syndrome? Maybe… Or maybe you all just suck really really bad. C!BR’s newly found united aggression towards humanity has been channeled into fast n loud music, designed to deafen and destroy, to pound and pummel, breaking your bones with brutal tones.

A local favorite of mine- Murf will be kicking the night off. MURF is a six piece punk outfit based in minneapolis. Its members hail from Iowa, North Carolina, South Dakota and Minnesota. MURF originally began as a venue for the vocalist Dan to vent anger towards the police force using Robocop as the inspiration and to get to know his then housemate/MURF guitarist Tom. They recorded several demos, one looping in mutual friend and MURF guitarist Hunter.

Tickets are still available here.
