I didn't see The Emotron last year, so Austin Wilkinson of Jensen Sportag kindly wrote up a preview for us on his return appearance tonight at The 5 Spot. Check it:
Atlanta's Emotron made Nashville history earlier this year at The Basement by becoming the first person to set his nuts on fire as a false finale to his splendidly tasteless show. Yes, I said "false finale" because he did indeed go at least three queasy steps further before the last of us shuffled out with embarrassed grins and avoidance of eye contact.
A completely loveable shtick of cheap electro-punk, bizarre rant and insanely costumed contortionism, The Emotron's performance forced me to imagine a one-man prison musical about the life of Sid Vicious starring Napoleon Dynamite. Now y'all can get the last scraps of your own innocence peeled away with each increasingly hysterical costume modification at "THE EMOTRON'S RETURN" tonight at The 5 Spot.
