Are you ready for our 5th Annual ROBOT DANCE OFF?!? And this year, it’s also the hottest Halloween party in CT! We’re teaming up with our friends atHardcore Sweet Cupcakes to make it super-sweet!!
Whether as a human, a robot or whatever, there are many ways you can enjoy this year’s RDO 2017!! If you want to come and boogie down as a human observer, that’s totally cool! If you want to dress up in a groovy Halloween costume and enjoy yourself in the company of great music, food and friends, that is also cool. But what the Dance Off is really about is ROBOTS!! So grab whatever recycled materials are kicking around and make yourself a cool Robot costume to dance, eat and gyrate those rotors all night long!!
Prizes will be given for Best Overall Robot, Sexiest Robot, Robot with the Best Dance Moves, Coolest Halloween Costume and Most Normal Looking Human!! That’s 5 prizes and we haven’t even talked about the killer entertainment and food!!
Dance and groove the night away to some of CT’s hottest bands!! Joining us is our favorite rapscallion of vinyl, DJ Zerp, to keep the beat going! Birthed from our “Out of this World Burlesque and Variety Show”, DJ Zerp has gone on to take CT by storm, playing at all the hippest events and churning out some killer beats, including his recent album, THE BAD.
We are also happy to bring Falconeer on board! Trent Reznor and Megaman had a baby, and it was this. Falconeer is a new instrumental audio/visual project bringing the spectacle back to CT. Blending over-the-top synth pop and retro game influences, Falconeer builds on a vintage synthesizers, modified video game consoles, and a bit of tongue-in-cheek nostalgia for hyperbolic electronic hits of the 80s to make a sound somewhere between Kraftwerk and LCD Soundsystem.
We are super excited to welcome back RDO favorites, Mission Zero!! They are frequently asked the same two questions: “Are you guys twins?” and “Where’s the rest of the band?” Creating lush, shiny indie pop that fills a room, siblings Chenot and David Keith (no, they’re not twins) start with powerful, intricate drumming and rich vocals and flesh out their sound with both live and pre-programmed synth and guitar. As WPKN Radio put it,“They sound much bigger than a duo.” The siblings have played separately and together all over the world in a variety of bands (including David’s current gigs with rock icon Ritchie Blackmore in Rainbow and Blackmore’s Night). Their sound has been compared to the music of Phantogram, tUnE-yArDs, Sylvan Esso, and the Eurythmics, but the band’s sound is ever-evolving and truly all its own.
We have some special guest to keep you fueled up for the evening! Camped right outside for whenever you need a break to re-energize your batteries, we have The Green Grunion FOOD TRUCK , a San Diego style burrito truck that provides the fine people of the greater Danbury area (and beyond) a TRUE burrito done the San Diego way… right!
and supercool Mobilepubevents bring us The Mobile Pub!! Connecticut’s 1st on-site mobile bar service! The Mobile Pub is a completely rebuilt and renovated 1962 Shasta caravan transformed into a fully operating bar!!
