ABOUT THE SHOW:
Gearhead and the Realbot is a wacky, science fiction comedy and playwright Bob Simpson’s homage to awesome, terrible, and terribly awesome science fiction films and television shows, particularly from the 1950s and 60s. The play takes us through a day in the lives of the crew of the spaceship, Pomegranate Fizz, as they explore the galaxy and try desperately to not blow themselves up. The show contains a smorgasbord of goofy characters, from the inept and overly-masculine captain, to the shell-shocked first mate, to the gentle but probably an axe murderer doctor, to her sweet and annoying son…you know, the one the producers put on the show to appeal to kids but actually appeals to your carnal desire to see a child run over by an Abrams tank. And don’t forget the villain, whose desire to take over the universe is rooted in the fact that…I don’t know…it’s Wednesday? Lots of laughs, lots of cool special effects, and a sock puppet…Gearhead and the Realbot has it all.

1/9 Slingr & The Unknown Artists: A Fundraiser & Karaoke Extravaganza

The Unknown Artists is opening the 2014 season with something special — an evening of karaoke and a preview of our upcoming production, Gearhead & the Realbot!  We’re partnering with a brand new app for the event called Slingr. Checking in with Slingr lets your friends at home make donations — or send you a drink or two — in real time. Seriously, this exists.

THURSDAY, JANUARY 9TH
8:30pm-1:00am

MICHAEL’S BAR AND GRILL
2825 W. Olive Ave
Burbank, CA 91505

Admission is $10 at the door, but we’re giving a 50% discount to anyone who downloads and checks in with Slingr. Just show us you have the app on your phone when you arrive. All donations plus 10% of all food and drinks ordered that night (both in-person and sent through Slingr) are going to help Unknown Artists.

Kick off the New Year with some of the most talented performers you’ve never heard of, and help us raise some funds for the company. Whether you plan to come or not, be sure to download the Slingr app from your app store before the event. It’s free, and it’s awesome.
