Galen Nissa, Miriam, Josie, and Gwyn

Ersatz Robots is a band, and not really a group of robots at all. In fact, Ersatz Robots is a group of human women who play music. We have various influences, including 90s indie rock, 80s alternative, punk, and emo – but only the good emo, we promise.

Brittany Strummer memorial show at 3 Kings Tavern – May 2, 2019
Join us for our one-and-only show

Founded by Galen Nissa Mitchell, the Robots have come together for a single show before our fearless leader moves to the midwest. We’re play with Typesetter, Cheap Perfume, and Came & Took It – all together in remembrance of Brittany Strummer.
