What might an intrepid trekkie or oddball music fan the type that yearns for the reactivation of Man or Astroman? do on a hot Saturday night? What else but go investigate the circus-like, pro-science environment of Saturdays Phenomenauts show, happening at City Limits (19 NE 3rd Ave., Delray Beach) with the AKAs, Maldroid, Pots n Pans and local psychobilly faves the Van Orsdels? It would be too easy to describe the Phenomenauts as a gene splicing experiment among nerdy Devo fans, kids who watched the original Battlestar Galactica series till their eyes bled, and a Reverend Horton heat enthusiast so we wont go there. Beyond the bands engaging visual elements, like its snappy space commander uniforms, lab coats, fancy galaxy glasses, and a really, really awesome wearable Theremin (yes, its true!), lies an element of musical fun and hijinks. Fans are called cadets, so go sign up. Tickets are $8 in advance and $10 at the show. Visit http://newcitylimits.com.
