That's why I'm so excited for tonight's performance by Denver's very own mad-scientist collective, the Motoman Project. The performance, titled Smoke & Mirrors, features robots armed with flamethrowers, air cannons and gnarly metal teeth unleashing heavy-metal destruction. An ear-splitting soundtrack of metal machine music created by an enormous spark gap generator, digital compositions by project members and the grating, roaring and rattle of the machines themselves accompanies the carnage. Earplugs are strongly advised.
This sneak peek at the coming robot apocalypse happens at Capsule Art & Event Center, 560 Santa Fe Drive. The gallery opens at 6 p.m. and the performance begins at dusk. Admission is free, but space is limited, so get there early to claim a spot. Visit www.motomanproject.org or call 720-331-4405 for more information.
Fri., July 6, 6 p.m.
