Captured By Robots


It is safe to say that no band on tour right now quite comes near the experience of a Captured By Robots show. The safest parallel would be to watch one of those animatronic pizza-parlor bands after you’ve taken a liberal dose of acid, then goad the band into developing a bad attitude toward the human race, until it promises to enslave and openly humiliate you in front of your noncybernetic peers. The band really consists of one man — Jason Vance — and his assortment of synthetic pals, and the performance is equal parts comedy routine, vaudeville show, giddy punk freakout and Discovery Channel robotics documentary. The last CBR tour was an interpretation of The Ten Commandments (as in the Charleton Heston movie), so heaven only knows what mayhem this tour will bring.
