“Robot Sunsets are an ever-tightening performance outfit, featuring the inimitable Lars Larson on drums (he has a kick cowbell, y’all), the embarrassingly talented David Russell on bass (we have more bass solos than guitar solos), the musical mastermind of Jason Puccinelli on guitar and vocals (he’s got more jam than Smuckers’ got jelly), and Jed Dunkerley, singing lead and writhing around (to quote Evan Mosher after our last show: ‘…like a combination of Tom Jones and David Byrne.’) The music of Robot Sunsets will get you laughing and thinking while wanting to dance.

About the Film:
What if a psychological crisis was seen as having the potential to be a positive transformative experience, instead of a “broken brain”?
Human-rights photographer Phil Borges witnessed how indigenous cultures around the world often identify “psychotic” symptoms as an indicator of shamanic potential.
Back in the US, Phil follows two young Americans diagnosed with “mental illness.” Adam, 27, suffers devastating side effects from medications before embracing meditation. Ekhaya, 32, survives several suicide attempts before spiritual training to become a traditional South African healer. CRAZYWISE introduces mental health professionals and psychiatric survivors who see a psychological crisis as a potential growth experience, not a disease.
