Monotonix, Lighting Drums on Fire in a City Near You

I was in Israel this summer, and was subjected to mostly rap circa 1999 and Bedouin tribal jams throughout the duration of my stay. However, I did read about a band in a U.S. based magazine while in Tel Aviv, irony being they were originally from Tel Aviv.

Unlike what it seemed in Israel, Monotonix is no stranger to these parts. With gigs at the Talking Head and Black Cat this year, these Drag City signees seem to be impressing heads with their ridiculous shows that often include drum surfing.

They'll be back in the area, playing the Ottobar with Japanese garage psych rockers DMBQ on October 20th. If in need of more immediate rock and roll freakouts, you can catch them at the Black Cat September 10th with indie hillbilly rock gods Silver Jews.
