    I wish Dina would have mentioned the band that is playing! Robot Sunsets.“Robot Sunsets are an ever-tightening performance outfit, featuring the inimitable Lars Larson on drums (he has a kick cowbell, y’all), the embarrassingly talented David Russell on bass (we have more bass solos than guitar solos), the musical mastermind of Jason Puccinelli on guitar and vocals (he’s got more jam than Smuckers’ got jelly), and Jed Dunkerley, singing lead and writhing around (to quote Evan Mosher after our last show: ‘…like a combination of Tom Jones and David Byrne.’) The music of Robot Sunsets will get you laughing and thinking while wanting to dance. Songs run the traditional gamut of subjects like technological dystopia, toxic masculinity, and runaway gentrification, within an energetic gray genre that defies accurate description. Robot Sunsets will make you forget the Sunday night blues, just as you get used to writing 2019 on things that you write dates on.”

Sorry, comment time is over.
