Its true what theyre saying about tonights Robot Dance Party III at Buntport Theater a fifteen-foot-tall robot with moving arms and laser-shooting eyes will come to life at midnight, and, yes, the remote-controlled Robosapien will be there to entice party-goers into periodic dance-offs. But it wont be all glamdroids and metal men shifting their gears and being square all night; its a motherboardin dance party, after all.
"It'll be sort of like if the Transformers went and had a party, says organizer Marc Hughes, aka The Postman. The music wont necessarily be electronic, but it will definitely be geared toward a massive crazy dancefest.
Along with the Postman, DJs Wigdan Giddy, El Brian and LV17 will join forces with fog machines, strobe lights and an all-out science-fiction ambience for this BYOB bash to benefit Buntport.
New Years is full of all kinds of commitments, Hughes adds. Were not asking you to make a commitment. Were just asking you to have some fun. Its a chance to get out and do something different than going to your friends basement or going downtown and getting all fancy dressed up.
The 21+ party starts at 9 p.m. and lasts until 4 a.m. at Buntport, 717 Lipan Street; cover is $8 for robots in costume (or those bearing food/drink) and $10 for humans. Get more info at www.myspace.com/dapostman.
