WUAG 103.1 FM is excited to present the Three-Brained Robot at the UNCG Faculty Center. The Three-Brained Robot will bring their particularly zany mix of performance art and music to UNCG on Sunday, October 2. This show will kick off a month-long, multi-country European tour for the Greensboro local and visionary behind the three-brains, Sam Martin.
The Three-Brained Robot is definitely a musical act to be seen, and not just heard. Sam Martin is an extremely talented performance artist, and his stage presence is a vital component to the success of the Three Brained Robot. His visual show is arrestingly disturbing, funny, and uniquely freaky. Martin’s past on-stage antics include spitting fake blood all over himself, donning a contorted baby mask, pretending to be a cat and meowing at the audience, and various displays of floor-writhing insanity. The Three-Brained Robot is a bizarre presence that is not for the faint of heart. However, if you’re new to the Greensboro area and you’re looking for a sensory-overloaded evening of creative chaos and brilliance, this show will stimulate your thrill seeking ways.
Martin has definitely made his mark in the Gate City area since the conception of The Three-Brained Robots in 2008. He’s a frequenter of Greensboro house shows, and even organized his own series of local musical performances at his hub for local music, TYP House. Martin has spent the summer touring the south and midwest, but his “musical experience” has found its way all over the states. His brother Ben perform his demented electronic/video act Poose the Puppet at the WUAG fall kickoff show with David Liebe Hart and Mediocre at Best. If you’re looking for a preview of his work, check out The Three-Brained Robot on YouTube or Soundcloud.
Greensboro native Gwen Young will open the show with her act, Knives of Spain. She’s a composer who defines her style of music as 21st-century trobairitz music. Young’s delicate and pretty experimental sounds earned her the Regional Artist Grant from the United Arts Council in 2013. You can check out her upcoming tour dates and music at www.knivesofspain.com.
The Chelsea Kills will also join the bill under the name Lally. They are a indie garage-pop punk quartet from Elkins Park, Pennsylvania. The Chelsea Kills have been playing all around the East coast since 2008, and have released three full length LPs. You can listen to their most recent release, “Agony, Guilt and Loneliness”, on their bandcamp site. Additionally, you can check out their facebook to see more of their upcoming tour dates.
In addition to a night packed with three musical acts, WUAG will host giveaway opportunities to two local events. A trio of tickets to Greensboro’s Woods of Terror, and a pair of day passes to the Shakori Hills Grassroots Festival in Pittsboro, North Carolina will be up for grabs for. Sign up will be available at the WUAG representative table during the show.
Doors for the show open at 7 p.m. and the show will kickoff at 7:30 p.m. The UNCG Faculty Center is located right in front of the EUC, next to the library. If you need disability accommodations for this show, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. This is an entirely free show! While this is an on-campus event, all community members and supporters of local musicians are welcome.
