Science Fiction Double Feature: “Apocalypse Songs” & “Effing Robots!”
September 19 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm$15
Petrified by thoughts of Armageddon? Perplexed by news of Artificial Intelligence? Look no further than this exciting and entertaining evening of music and sci-fi storytelling from two globetrotting Seattle nerds, L. Nicol Cabe and Aaron J. Shay!
Storyteller and performer, L. Nicol Cabe, imagines how biology and technology will smash together in “Effing Robots: How I Taught the A.I. to Stop Worrying and Love Humans.” Artificial Intelligence is on its way, and it will be powerful. What happens to us when it arrives? How will it perceive us? Can it learn… to love? After getting hit on by a chatbot, one horny science fiction nerd is on a quest to make it with a new AI overlord.
Freshly returned from his Edinburgh Fringe debut, Banjo ballardeer Aaron J. Shay combines folk-punk and speculative fiction in “Apocalypse Songs!” Part concert, part theater, part storytelling, and all adventure. The story follows Captain Redacted, a scientist/poet sent to explore alternate universes and document his findings in original songs and poetic stories..
