Over time that horn- and Moog-driven band has evolved into Rockbot, pictured, so it's not surprising to the initiated to see the female singer on stage furiously whipping nunchucks and doing other acrobatic maneuvers while singing along. Her name is Apollo (what else?), she has two painful sticks attached to a chain, and she's not afraid to use them. Rockbot opens for the equally off-kilter indie rock band, Atom and His Package on Valentine's Day at Nine-Twenty-Nine Cafe during an early show, 6-10 p.m.
