Brothers Mikaiha and Anaiah Lei have been making music together since they were little kids. Now The Bots, as they’re known, are making waves across the nation with their surfrock-infused jams. The drums and guitar duo is certainly beyond the point of being new or novel, but when it’s done well it still provides some wonderful noise. These guys certainly make the most of it. Last year they played the summer festival circuit, hitting Outside Lands, Bonnaroo, Coachella, and RiotFest and the New York Times said that they were “on the cusp of stardom.”
Now they’re touring with The Preatures and stopping here in Chicago on Thursday March 26th for a sold out show at Schubas. While they’re still considered an “opening band,” expect headliner-level energy and quality from The Bots.
