Beachland Tavern, Cleveland, OH
The Protomen are a band who have based their sound on the music of the video game Mega Man. They were compelled to, as they say, dress up like robots and play music inspired by an 80s video game. Their albums are concept pieces based on the dystopian world in which Mega Man takes place. These musical tales are dark and apocalyptic, but also loud, and completely kick-ass in a late-era Queen kind of way. Let’s not forget to mention that The Protomen truly, deeply, and non-ironically sound like theme music to 80s action movies and TV shows. Don’t be surprised if KITT or the Airwolf come flying through the Beachland tonight! On this bill, we’ll also have heavy doom metal band Venomin James and “nerdcore” hip-hop duo 2d6.
