Artist of the day: The Garbage-Men



A group of Sarasota ninth graders calling themselves The Garbage-Men are making quite a racket these days.

Like a teenage version of Blue Man Group or Stomp, they use recycled materials to create a sound all their own: a keyboard made from bottles, horns made from PVC, a bass made from a Lucky Charms box, a guitar made from a Mini Wheats box and sax made from a medicine bottle and balloon, and more. Head to Whoa, Momma! to learn more about these krazy kids.

The Garbage-Men will perform from 11 a.m. to noon and 1 to 2 p.m. Sunday at Tampa's Museum of Science and Industry, 4801 E Fowler Ave. Tampa. Click here for details on the gig.
