Domo Arigato, Rabbi Roboto

Jbot, the lead singer and only human member of the band Captured! By Robots initially seems to be a few gigs short of a hard drive. He’s crazy, all right — like a fox. The self described “enslaved human” has been building robot sidemen for a decade. “I played in bands with people, and I couldn’t do it anymore. I just got sick of the drugs and the egos,” Jbot explains. His bandmates still have plenty of attitude, but the gear headed gimmick has brought Jbot national success. Celebrate romance tonight at the I Got Married by Captured! By Robots concert. The death metal band will perform covers of wedding staples like “Celebration,” “Unchained Melody,” and “Hot, Hot, Hot.” “I actually became ordained with the Universal Life Church, so I’m gonna be marrying people at the shows. It might not be legal, but it will definitely be spiritual,” says Jbot. “Most of the ’bots will be wearing tuxes. Drumbot will be dressed as a bride. The Ape That Hath No Name will be dressed as a priest, and I’m dressed as Rabbi Jbotstein. I’m looking Jew ier than I’ve ever looked,” he says. Say “I do” at Churchill’s. Admission is seven dollars.
