Linda Perry’s Deep Dark Robot Comes to Boston

Linda Perry and Tony Tornay’s Deep Dark Robot played Great Scott in Boston on Tuesday 3/29. The band is certainly a departure from Perry’s early work with 4 Non-Blondes (thank God). Their sound is pretty straight up rock n’ roll, rather similar to the UK’s Little Fish or Juliette and the Licks. The show was high energy despite Perry’s confession that she had just got up from a nap before playing. Her stage presence is unmatchable and Tornay (also of Fatso Jetson) tore it up on drums. Both perfomers greeted the eager crowd after the show in a display of humble appreciation for their fans. The verdict: go to and find out where to see them next. In the meantime, buy the record. You won’t hear another like it anytime soon.
