The Phenomenauts – Playing PGH on 8/18

Phenomenauts

Ever wonder what DEVO would sound like if Mike Mothersbaugh had hung out at CBGB on bop pills instead of fashioning kitchenware headgear with David Bowie and Brian Eno? Yeah me neither. But I think it would sound a lot like The Phenomenauts, a scifi punkabilly/surf band from Oakland that's coming to 31st St Pub on August 18th.

I found these guys by accident browsing the 31st St schedule (how could I pass up checking out a band with a name like the Phenomenauts?), so I don't know a ton about them, but I like what I've seen so far. They dress up as robots, sing about rocket ships and alien babes, and list TMBG among their influences on MySpace; win-win-win. They also seem to have quite a cult following, which usually means they're a lot of fun live.
