Captured! By Robots 

When: Tue., May 14, 8:30 p.m. 2013
Price: $8

Captured! By Robots broadcasts a backstory that claims its human singer-in-chains, JBOT, serves as the captive slave to the robot rock band that backs him. But the project actually originated much like automatic checkouts at grocery stores: Dealing with machines is sometimes easier than dealing with people. Tired of band life, former punk musician Jay Vance built these industrial animals. Together, they conjure newfangled classic rock anthems and a strange brew of covers, interspersing bits of stand-up concerning human weakness and the automated revolution within the set. This is a concept album, taken to delightful extremes. —Grayson Currin
