Thurs., Aug. 08, Captured! By Robots
The Press Club, 8 p.m., $5
The story of Captured! By Robots goes: Man builds robots. Robots come to life. Robots enslave man, forcing him to tour the country as they spew hatred at all of humanity. In short, it's an odd show. And, yes, it really is just one human and a bunch of robots onstage performing. The music falls in the noise-punk-metal category, but really, it's the live show that's where it's at. Currently, Captured! By Robots is on its C!BR Is Trippin' Balls tour, which is an attempt to make the show more like an acid trip, or at least to show what it's like when robots go through an acid trip. 2030 P Street, www.capturedbyrobots.com.
