Not Even The Comet Can Hold Those Monotonix

Oh, you Monotonix! The Band Too Wild for BumbershootTM topped themselves, again, Saturday night. Or rather, they big-butch topped their audience, playing nearly their entire set literally ON TOP of the crowd - a rowdy pack of rabid, sweaty, and supremely accommodating super fans. I’ve never ever seen ANY band crowd surf both themselves, and all their instruments right out of a club, onto the sidewalk, then down the street to a Shell gas station, then BACK into a club.

I kept expecting someone to drop one of them.

But it didn’t happen. Not even one drum stick hit the ground. In fact, they made it look EASY. I mean, look at this girl holding up singer Ami with just one hand…

Say what you will about their music - until you SEE IT to BELIEVE it - until you’ve seen a live show - I say Monotonix are the best fucking live band, in 2008, playing La Rock and Rolls.

After Bumbershoot... I HAD to see these guys do a full set. It was absolutely the most mind blowing night of pure rock'n'roll mayhem imaginable. Astonishing. And they can really play too!!
