Entries in protomen (4)



the flier says it all, it's been a long time coming and it's finally happened evil bebos and the protomen share the stage along with meltface video destruction doing video projection, a stupenderific apocalyptic cataclysmic happening not to be missed. it's going to be a later show too i'm guessing 1030-11ish so you'll have plenty of time to get your makeup right, get in costume, and get hammered before the show.

pledge your allegiance to this event of facebook!

also bebos just jumped on the heartbeater show at the end this friday in place of the goldroom (cause they asked us not because we're a bunch of show jumpers) so extra bonus cause yall were going anyways... right?

maybe you should double check and make sure you invited all your friends to this show

Speaking of Protothings not to miss, meltface video destruction team will be pulling out all the stops for the most ridiculous multimedia performance to date with the protomen for their CD release show. not to be missed. SEPT 25th at the mercy lounge, and just between you and me this show WILL SELL OUT. so don't screw this up, buy your tickets now or you will miss out. Go buy this record too, it's ridiculous, epic, awesome.... and awesome. find out for yourself.




For those of you that missed out I've posted all the original videos for the protomens bonnaroo set combined with footage of the performance. Enjoy! They're numbered in order and this set doesn't include the Father of Death video and interview on Lightning 100 that i posted earlier. Enjoy and for the love of god people post some comments, i'm feeling like a neglected myspace princess here...




"Danger Zone" is a rock song from the soundtrack to the 1986 American motion picture Top Gun. It was composed by Giorgio Moroder (who is totally awesome) and Tom Whitlock, and performed by Kenny Loggins.

Moroder originally asked Bryan Adams to record this song, but he was said to have rejected it because he had disliked the jingoismexpressed in Top Gun. The rock group Toto was also supposed to perform the song, but due to legal matters, it was passed to Loggins.[1]

The second single released from the Top Gun soundtrack, "Danger Zone" was a commercial success, peaking at #2 on theBillboard Hot 100. The song continues to be popular today, continuing in heavy rotation on Classic Rock radio stations in the United States.

The song was covered by Oh, Hush! and released on the band's Don't Judge a Record by Its Covers EP. It was also featured in the films Harold and Kumar Escape from Guantanamo BaySex Drive and 17 Again, and the episode "Eight Misbehavin" of the television series The Simpsons.

Dann Hufflead vocalist and guitarist from '80s glam metal group Giant performed guitar work on this song.

Covered by the Protomen at the annual Tennessee music festival Bonnaroo as a part of a truly epic hour long set. Featuring 14ish members, three video projectors, robot warfare, phish phighting, hilarious fun and furious rock. This is one of the highlights of that set though its hard to choose a favorite this was a unique moment in protohistory. Trey has been difficult to contact concerning the epic Proto vs. Phish battle as he is busy bathing in money while smoking blunts wrapped with hundred dollar bills. 

Notice this is one of the many times during the set someone screams "Phish Sucks" you can hear it during the introduction they give to the song.

BTW Protogeeks take note i have in my posession a piece of a guitar smashed on stage at the Mercy Lounge Road to Bonnaroo 8 off 8th show.... email me with offers... i can get it signed.... hook it up kids i need money.
