Ignore City is an audio drama rock musical with original songs by The Shake Ups. It’s Futurama meets The Terminator – but with singing!
It’s a post-apocalyptic future, in which technology has been outlawed and the remaining humans live under the dome of Ignore City to escape the devastated world climate. Deban Rimpa, a scrappy bike messenger, discovers and befriends the head of the sentient robot, Saner 0805. Deban embarks on a grand adventure through Ignore City to save civilization with Saner’s help. That is, unless thugs, bike gangs, black market overlords, government agents, and a precocious 10 year-old girl destroy Saner first!.
Ignore City is written by Ed Cho, author of the graphic novel series, Little Guardians, and features original music, songs, and voice work by The Shake Ups.
Garr and his biker gang bring the talking robot head to Mr. Hobbs looking for a reward. Deban, Gus, and Tantalas attempt to rescue Saner 0805 before he is sold. Agent Blu leads an SCU task force to take down the tech mobster once and for all. All events lead to the showdown at The House of Mr. Hobbs.
Written and created by Ed Cho.
Music written and performed by The Shake Ups.
Deban Rimpa, a tech-scavenging bike messenger, unearths the head of a sentient robot, Saner 0805, discarded in a junk pile. Such technology is considered illegal after the uprising against artificial intelligence centuries ago. But instead of destroying Saner like she’s supposed to, she listens to what the enigmatic Saner has to say. Her life will never be the same again.
