Cobra Lilies news is moving

Hi all--

As 3/5 of the Monolators are also Cobra Lilies it seemed appropriate to report on our other band's various doings here, but actually there is a separate (and long neglected) Cobra Lilies blog too, and except for maybe an occasional mention I think it now makes more sense to report on Cobra Lilies doings over there:

http://cobralilies.com/blog/


Please take a visit as I will update it in a more regular (IE, not every 6 months) fashion. There is currently some news over there that might be of interest.

Well said.

Hmm. This blogger seems to have a hermit crab fixation.

ja k├Ânnen wir

Thanks to all who came out to the show on Monday--between the door and our merch sales (we gave everything that we made to Sean) Pehrspace made it past the $500 mark needed to buy new PA speakers! We are very happy that we could help.

I didn't realize it, having a rather high tolerance for broken/shitty equipment, but apparently the current set of speakers has no high end left, just bass. So Pehrspace currently uses their wedge monitors not as monitors anymore but as treble reinforcement for the audience. Awesome.

I wonder if the new speakers will be in place for Saturday's Cobra Lilies show?

Some shots from Monday's show on LA Underground's Flickr page. Yes, that's a cast on Ashley's ankle. And yes, I did whack it at some point on the last song. I am so, so sorry. Please forgive me.

Monday show--Pehrspace PA fundraiser! Help Pehrspace!

We're honored that Sean Carnage asked us to play again on his fabled Monday night show at Pehrspace--this coming Monday, in fact, the 13th.


But!

What is extra special about this coming Monday is that it's a fundraiser for Pehrspace, which desperately desperately needs a new PA--the old one has put in years of service and has pretty much given up the ghost. We love Pehrspace and Sean with all of our lil' hearts and will do whatever it takes to help--so--we ask you all to come out Monday, anytime on Monday night, and give your support too! As extra enticement--yes--we're bringing the homemade Pretzels Of Awesomeness.
Pretzels pretzels pretzels!!!

$5 for a worthy cause! And pretzels! And a great lineup!

For the first time in years--Westside show on saturday

We have not played a show on the west side of Los Angeles since, I think, 2005, but now we can correct that--we've just added a show for tomorrow night, Saturday the 4th, at the Dakota Lounge on Wilshire Boulevard in Santa Monica.


It's a really good lineup with Rademacher, Coral Sea, and Marvelous Toy. The night starts at 9pm and we go on at 10. We're playing new material and we'd love to see you there.


Love,
Eli, Mary, Ashley, Jillinda, and Ray
The Monolators
