Robot Riot Space Fights x Terrible Spaceship (live performance)

Robot Riot Space Fights & Live show from Terrible Spaceship (opening)

Robot Riot is Chicago’s worst and only robot fighting league. Tabletop-sized robots win fame and glory by either destroying their opponents or winning the hearts of the crowd. Glitter cannons will fire off against swinging hammers in hot robot on robot action. No robot? No problem! We’ll have loaner bots on deck for any lucky audience members who want to jump into the ring.

This time around we’re setting our phasers to kill, hopping into the Enterprise, and going to hyperspace or whatever the fuck goes on in those movies. We’ll be toe-stepping on Star Wars as much as we can without getting sued by Michael M. Mouse. Will Luke shoot a bullet into a hole and blow up the Bad Star (™)? Will Han Solo collect all the dragon balls and wish for CGI Carrie Fisher to turn real?? Come and find out!!

Sci-fi costumes are HIGHLY encouraged! Doll yourselves up and talk nerdy to me, baby.

Terrible Spaceship – Science fiction dance music! Featuring synchronized video, a three part horn section and custom lighting design.
