THE ADVENTURES OF THE SWEET ELECTRIC: Defender
By Dan Casey on September 2, 2014
Warning: if you don’t want to have radical rock ‘n’ roll jams stuck in your head for the rest of the day, turn away now. We’ll all laugh at you and call you a “music coward” behind your back, but at least you’ll have your sanity intact, and that has to be worth something, right? All right, for those intrepid souls who remain, welcome to the world premiere of Liam Lynch’s The Adventures of The Sweet Electric, the best damn show in town about an intergalactically popular rock band made up of Androgynoids, which, yes, are androgynous robots that would give the Thin White Duke a run for his money.
In today’s debut episode, “Defender”, our heroes – V1ctor, Robbie, and Shay – board an abandoned luxury ship on the way to their next gig. But wait… where are all the escape pods? And why is there so much blood on the walls? Fortunately for The Sweet Electric, Robbie’s got a comic book that might just help them get out of this mess.
What’d you think of the first episode? Sound off in the comments below!
