THE CYBERTRONIC SPREE TO TAKE OVER HISTORIC BLOOR HOT DOCS CINEMA
Rare screening of The Transformers: The Movie (1986) to be followed by performance of entire soundtrack.
Toronto, ON - (March 10, 2015) - The Cybertronic Spree, the worldâ€™s premiere Transformers-themed party band, is set to take over Bloor Hot Docs Cinema in Toronto on March 21 at 9 p.m. in an event that includes a rare screening of the cult classic 1986 animated film, The Transformers: The Movie.
"As far I know, this has never been done before," says Hotrod, bassist and leader of The Cybertronic Spree. "And I should know, dammit. I'm in the band and have an impeccable memory." He went on to add, "I'm also quite handsome, by Cybertronian standards."
Hotrod is right. A massive cull of Earth's online databases as well as the memory banks of all living humans has indeed shown that not only have theatrical screenings of The Transformers: The Movie been exceptionally rare, but also that they have never been followed by a live performance of the film's soundtrack by any band, let alone The Cybertronic Spree.
"This screening is due to popular demand," adds Rumble, drummer and sarcastic know-it-all of The Cybertronic Spree. "I kept demanding to the band that we should do this! Mostly I just wanna see that scene where Frenzy and I take down Devastator. Not sure how the Constructicons managed to merge while we were inside Astrotrain's cargo compartment, but that doesn't matter."
What does matter, however, is that attendees are guaranteed an experience they will never forget, and one that they can retell their children and their children's children, much like Autobot Kup regales the Dinobots with his war stories in The Transformers: The Movie.
The takeover coincides with that weekend's Toronto Comicon, with convention pass holders receiving a $5 discount on admission to the takeover event. In addition to the screening and the live music performance, there will be an audience Q&A and fans will have the opportunity to meet and take photos with the band.

All interested parties have paid to buy/rent TF:TM multiple times over multiple decades, so it's only bootleggin' if you get caught! Carob Island will bless you for throwing even a nanosecond of lost footage on Youtube!

Well, at least they finally finished the Unicron costume. The last Youtube vid I saw of these guys a few years ago, IIRC he was just a head, with normal clothes underneath.Bouncy X wrote:did they fun out of material to finish off Hot Rod? he seems to be wearing tighty whities turned red. lol
