All that I really knew about the Robotanists before they opened up day 2 at the Factory was that they recorded Radiohead’s “King of Limbs” cover to cover within 24 hours of its release. That’s quite a feat considering that the band released it 24 hours in advance, not to mention that it was one of their most difficult albums to date.
But the Robotanists jittered with mature angst considering that it was noon on the Friday of SXSW after St. Patty’s Day. Their set was made of songs from albums previous as well as a couple from their latest album, Plans in Progress. Most notable was their set closer which you can watch on the livestream channel. www.livestream.com/thesessionsfactory.
The Robotanists also decided to hang out after their set to record a takeaway show and chat with the producers. The apres show show is on the livestream as well.
