Call it nerdpunk, but Careers in Science fuses the geekiness of The Venture Brothers and old school punk & 80s new wave. They have an upcoming show at NXNE on late night Wednesday at Rancho Relaxo. Their lyrics are laden with satire, along with plenty of pop culture references of geekdom and suburban paranoia {e.g., "ROCKETS!"}.  Perhaps the "Careers in Science National Anthem" best sums up their Weltanschauung::

"we're not here to save rock and roll, we're here to save tokyo from the 70 foot monsters outside the show. we're not fighting for the common man, we're not a working man's band, we are a band of working men. we're not living on borrowed time, we're punching in 9 to 5, and I think we're doing fine. and if we lose tonight, we'll change sides... if our weapons don't work, we'll wear the monsters shirts. whatever happens, we're not free men."
