The Roly-bots at the Hummingbird Stage and Taproom

Since then, the members of the band have moved out of the area and have taken on new lives. They reunite once again to share their danceable, high energy, indie-rock style for a group of diehard fans who never stopped believing. The are joined by another missing in action local celebrity, DJ Montalbon Jr. This is going to be one wild, good time! 21 and up. 10 p.m. $5.

Laid back and relaxing, this is a great band for people who really enjoy listening to what each instrument is doing during a song. 18 and up. 10 p.m. Free.
