Perusing the new photos for local synth dorks How I Became the Bomb vaguely reminds us of the overall aesthetic of another troupe of local synth dorks. Firstly, there are lasers, which figure prominently in a certain local band's live show. Then there's the whole silver pseudo-tribal face paint thing. Then there's the helmet. And the suits. It's all got that whole futuristic bombed-out apocalyptic thing going on that seems a lot like the whole futuristic bombed-out apocalyptic thing going on with other photos also taken by Jonathan Kingsbury of a band that starts with a "P" and ends with a "rotomen." Coincidence? Happy accident? You decide.

Both bands synth you down at Mercy Lounge on Dec. 13. We hear there might even be a snow machine.
