YSLAR Updates: September ’12

Those of you who made it to Dragon*Con this weekend… I am jealous! It looks like it was quite a wild time. That would be the dancers from The Crüxshadows putting Nathaniel Johnstone and Steven Archer, half of Ego Likeness, in their places while Donna Lynch, the other half, watches disapprovingly. Or approvingly? It’s difficult [...]

VIDEO: The Crüxshadows, “Valkyrie” (Live at Dragon*Con 2011)

I usually spend the whole month of August posting about the different bands attending Dragon*Con. However, I am unable to attend this weekend for the first time in almost ten years! So I decided to take this month off from that. I do want to bring your attention to the new release by The Crüxshadows [...]

VIDEO: Bella Morte, “My Heart Will Go On” [Live at Dragon*Con 2011]

It was one hundred years ago tonight the ill-fated RMS Titanic struck an iceberg on its maiden voyage from Southampton to New York City. Good thing they didn’t make it to the States or all of these movies and spinoffs would never have been made, eh? The picture above is from one of my favorite [...]

YSLAR Updates: September 2011

We have reached the month of September, a traditionally slow month in You Sound Like A Robot history. Following a week at the craziest convention in the area Dragon*Con I have to come back and catch up on school work. On top of this I’m now working between two jobs, so free time is scarce. [...]

VIDEO: Jefferson Starship, “Light the Sky on Fire”

I don’t know a lot about my next Dragon*Con featured band, Jefferson Starship, other than they have been making music for a very long time. Jefferson Starship is actually a spin-off band of sorts of Jefferson Airplane which came about in the early 1970′s. I first heard of the newer Jefferson Starship variation in the [...]

VIDEO: Abney Park, “My Life”

Another band that I am excited to see at this year’s Dragon*Con are the steampunkers in Abney Park. They recently released this video for the song “My Life” from their latest album, Æther Shanties. You can watch it after the break. Be sure to stop by and meet the folks from Abney Park at the [...]

VIDEO: Bella Morte “Find Forever Gone” Live

So, first off, i think i will skip a lengthy introduction, if you dont know of them or listen to them hopefully this post will inspire you to check them out. Bella Morte will be attending Dragon*Con this year, and will be playing friday evening with The Last Dance. Official Site | Facebook Bella Morte [...]

VIDEO: The Last Dance, “Once Beautiful”

Honestly, I’m surprised I haven’t posted this music video on here already. The Last Dance will be attending Dragon*Con this year, their first since 2006. The Last Dance released their latest album Once Beautiful back in 2005. Two years later in 2007 they released a documentary DVD called Almost Beautiful, some of which I seem [...]

VIDEO: The Hellblinki Sextet, “Breaking Everything”

The Hellblinki Sextet is returning to Dragon*Con this year! Not all of the Dragon*Con schedule has been posted yet, however some of the bands seem to know the night that they are scheduled to play already. It looks like my weekend may kick off seeing Hellblinki on Thursday night at 11:30pm. The band hailing from [...]

YSLAR Updates: August ’11

Another month is down and we are at an exciting month for You Sound Like A Robot each year, August. This month usually implies lots of preparing for my yearly big expenditure: Dragon*Con! Dragon*Con weekend means a lot of great music, nice people, and excellent costumes (such as the steampunk X-Men above). While I usually [...]
