Shit Robot Serves Up a Steaming Pile of Awesomeness at Grand Central August 13

You wouldn't wanna expect too much from a guy named Shit Robot? But has DFA ever wronged you?

The label has spawned stellar dance-rock acts like LCD Soundsystem, the Juan MacLean, and YACHT. And it has rarely, if ever, released at dud. In fact, the Irish-born, New York-based DJ/producer (who in real life goes by the name Marcus Lambkin) is responsible for introducing label honcho James Murphy to "good dance music" as well as his eternal collaborator Tim Goldsworthy.

So if it weren't for Shit Robot, DFA wouldn't exist as we know it.

The 40-year-old former raver also brings with him a vast knowledge of the dance-rock genre, evident on his formal debut, From The Cradle To The Rave, which features guests vocalists like DFA diva Nancy Whang, Hot Chip's Alexis Taylor, and the formidable Planningtorock.

When Lambkin made his Miami debut during this year's Miami Music Week, he wowed audiences with his lo-fi, Daft Punk-esque stage show. And for his return set at Grand Central, the live performance promises to be bigger, if not better. With almost three decades of music experience, you shouldn't expect any less. There is nothing shitty about Shit Robot.

Shit Robot with DJs Mike Deuce and Josh LeCash. Saturday, August 13. Grand Central, 697 N. Miami Ave., Miami. The show starts at 10 p.m. and tickets cost $15 plus fees via fla.vor.us. Call 305-377-2277 or visit grandcentralmiami.com.
