Hmm... I'm not usually much of a metal fan, but a metal band with theremin named after a Ray Bradbury story makes me seriously consider giving this band a try.

ETA - I kind of love how ridiculously stoked she looks playing that theremin, too! "FUCK YEEEEEAH! THEREMIIIIIN!" Sorry, I guess that's neither a question nor a particularly productive contribution to the discussion.
