"Real Things We Learned as a Fake Band" by James Beamon

Appeared in Daily SF. Online here.

A human animatronic band is forced to play before an alien crowd.

It is a clever conceit with an apropos title. Hiding the alien crowd toward the middle limits idea development, however. Bringing it up front would have forced a deeper examination of the aliens and their victims. Still, it's worth a quick gander.
