Plans In Progress Winners, Robotanists Residency Kickoff Photos
I must give a huge thanks to everyone who came out and made Robotanists‘ first residency night not only a successful night but fun night all around! The LA quartet played their new album, Plans In Progress, in its entirety and then closed the set out with their classic song, “Wait A Minute Here.” Live light installations by Dan Grayson were in full effect making their set even more mystical and supporting acts, Death Kit, Twilight Sleep and Lanterns all offered fantastic sets that went enjoyably late into the night! A few photos from Monday’s show are at the bottom of this post.
Next week’s residency night will fall on Valentine’s Day. If you’ve got a honey, celebrate privately on the weekend but come party with us on Feb. 14th with some smokin’ ladies! Los Angeles’ Oh Darling, Kissing Cousins, Robotanists + a special guest will all make you swoon with their musical talent in conjunction with their beauty. Also, if you really must do your own thing on Valentine’s Day, do it before the doors open at 8 or after the last band goes on! Single gals and guys, this may be the night you meet that special someone who just happens to have great taste in music. Who knows? We’re willing to be matchmakers if it means you guys come out for another great night.
Rewinding a bit back to last week, when we not only premiered Robotanists’ song, “The Ghost You’re Haunting,” Wild Tonic also offered free download cards for the first give people to correctly follow instructions in the giveaway. All you had to do was leave a comment telling me what makes Robotanists stand out in the sea of LA bands and then tweet the article. Plenty of you left comments but here are the five people who not only win a free download card for the new album, Plans In Progress, but also download cards for their two previous EPs, “Close Down The Woods” and “Shapes and Variations.”
Did you win? Find out after the jump…
jupucta: “what i dig about these guys is that they come recommended by peeps whose taste i value and respect.”
carlessvalleygirl: “Robotanists work hella hard. They are homegrown and down to earth, and yet they are still rocking on a completely different plane. As aware as they are of how great they are as musicians and songwriters and artists in general, they are as personable as you can get, even if you don’t know them personally. Win must be their middle name, because it’s what they’re full of!”
Adam Tod Brown: “What makes them really stand out is that I’ve never heard them. And I’ve heard everything!” (We assume the band has been a good discovery.)
Benita: “lovely vocals and lyrics. beautifully melodic, but their sound isn’t soft.”
Brian James: “I like em cos NO ONE writes songs like them and Sarah has the swooniest voice in LA!!”
All five winners will receive an e-mail from Wild Tonic (please make sure it doesn’t end up in your spam folder). If you do not respond in 24 hours, your download cards will be forfeited and given to another contestant, so make sure to hit me back! Congrats to these five.
