Never trust robots

A note from Automaton correspondent Meg Sturiano:

This past June, singer/songwriter/videographer/high-school teacher/newlywed Andrew Thompson and his outfit of musicians, backup singers, dancers, puppets, and robots performed his unique brand of pop music--think Michael Jackson meets Burt Bacharach--to a raucous crowd that came from all over the globe to the Brooklyn Lyceum to see the Serge Gainsbourg-inspired sets and costumes and hear new hits like Close the Blinds and Wake Up, Mr. Cuellar, and old favorites like There Must Be Some Kind of Misunderstanding and We're in Business.

Yes, "We're in Business," a.k.a. "The Robot Song," which is why we're posting this here by the way -- check out the awesome video, above. Thanks, Meg!
