The "I Wanna Be A Robot" Rock Show & Silent Art Auction at Club Dada on August 9th, 2008 is a benefit with the goal of raising funds to support research and to find a cure for Dystonia, as well as to help with the mounting medical bills for the diagnosis and treatment of Shakey Amy's Dystonia. Her subsequent surgery and the installation of a Intrathecal Baclofen Pump System will put them in over $500,000 in medical debt.

Amy has been suffering with Dystonia since the Summer of 2005, a mere 3 months after she and her husband Silas ™ met. Together, they are very strong. However, Dystonia has proven to be much stronger than the power of two people and two decent incomes. The medical community is not as nearly aware and proactive as they should be, and that needs to change! We need your help in aiding this couple in their fight against a disorder that affects over 300,000 Americans, with countless others going undiagnosed.
Dystonia is a movement disorder that causes the muscles to contract and spasm involuntarily. The neurological mechanism that makes muscles relax when they are not in use does not function properly. Opposing muscles often contract simultaneously as if they are "competing" for control of a body part. The involuntary muscle contractions force the body into repetitive and often twisting movements as well as awkward, irregular postures.
