The Protomen, Wizard Attack

9 pm, Thursday August 25 | $13 advance, $15 day of show
 
[NES CORE] Fresh from a triumphant performance at Nerdapalooza, Tennessee’s Protomen—a face-painted, pseudonym-happy, 10-piece prog troupe devoted to the teachings of retro Nintendo franchise Mega Man—have again taken to the road. While one might question whether the 8-bit dystopia deserves so full a musical extrapolation (the band has released two thirds of a planned album trilogy to a general lack of interest—performing part one on Aug. 24 and part two on Aug. 25), the band's live performances, as much traveling metal operetta as concert, deliver an artful, energetic and none too especially serious majesty.

Where: Lola's Room at the Crystal Ballroom
