The Robot Holiday Tradition Continues

Everyone needs to take a relaxing Robot Holiday at least once a year. The stress of human life can be oh so taxing. This Sunday consider retiring to the Sportsmens Tavern on Amherst Street to take in the clicks, buzzes and zaps of Robot Holiday music as performed by Buffalo’s most eccentric and nostalgic musicians. Not only will you get to experience the incredible transformation of The Sportsmen Tavern into a genuine roadhouse venue (see photos), you will also be able to sing along to electro-synth and unplugged holiday classics in a way that only Robbie the Robot could have dreamed. Click here to listen to over 70 Robot Holiday songs, and then beam yourself over to Sportsmens tomorrow to enjoy them performed live!
Who: 10+ Buffalo musicians including Dee Adams, Jonathan Hughes, Joelle Labert, Rob Lynch, Alex Lynne, Joe Rozler, and the Canal Street String Band

When: Sunday, December 11th, 7:30pm, $10
Where: Sportsmen’s Tavern, 326 Amherst St, Buffalo, 874-7734
