|MC5 meets The Stooges meets The Black Keys meets our eardrums. See them at Church 5/14.|
First there was Rough Francis (Riot House) from Vermont, then Missouri’s Radkey (Replay, Wreckroom), now Glendale, California brother band The Bots (FADER) are breaking the sound barrier with their version of face smashing, passionate noise. Is it just us, or are these family groups getting younger and younger?
Labeled “the youngest band to tour” two times in a row, twenty-year-old Mikaiah Lei (vox/guitar) and seventeen-year-old Anaiah Lei (drums) already have two Vans Warped Tours, two Afro-Punk Festival Tours and countless European festivals under their belt. Most recently the duo released their debut record, Sincerely Sorry, with FADER in the fall of 2013.
With charging, teeth gritting, fist clenching, amplified attitude, the rock and roll pair has harnessed the most effective assets of a buzz worthy band. Primal garage foundation, adrenaline inducing rhythm, and the unexpected prodigy factor.
In an ideal world, we’d like to see The Bots play with California teenage female sibling duo counterpart Dog Party. Has that happened yet? If not, we'll take a plus one to that show. Thanks.
You can see this amped up act live when the Lei brothers come to town during Wormwood Joint and League of Ordinary Gentlemen Comic Book Podcast presents, The Bots, Wednesday, May 14th at Church of Boston with J/Q, 2014 Rock N Roll Rumble band Harris Hawk and our favorite new band fresh off the streets of Boston, Grenades in the Archives.
Full show details can be found on the official Facebook event page. Tickets can be purchased via TicketFly.
