Monolators has a rare out-of-town show for our friends in Orange County this coming Monday at the Detroit Bar in Costa Mesa. We're playing the Relative Strangers residency and we have the 10:00 spot right in front of the headliners. NOT PLAYING AT MIDNIGHT. Or at 9 for that matter.
We're very happy to play out of town for this show, so please let your OC friends know...we'd love to see you there.
Two songs from our first show at Pehrspace in July--the first is a cover of "Weakness" by the great Emm't Swank, a wonderful LA band from the 90s that more people should know about. The second is our new song "I Waited Too Long":
Also, here is an interview we did with Maria Nunez-Romero immediately after the show. Talking about the formation of Dawn of Sequins, the history of the monolators, and our love for Sean Carnage. Plus you can get a closer look at our outfits:
Your Mom/Your Dad this Friday @ LA's Got Talent Fashion Night
I'm not sure how many people know this, as we only tend to perform once a year, but: Mary and I have a little side project called Your Mom/Your Dad. It is very distinct from all of our other bands--it's really Mary's band, as she writes and sings lead on most of the material, and I back her up on bass and incompetent keyboards. Your Mom/Your Dad only performs during the summer. This Friday we will play what will likely be our only show of 2011:
This is part of the "L.A.'s Got Talent" series of shows that Sean Carnage is putting on--we play the Fashion Night. My understanding is this: there will be a catwalk. You, yes YOU, can take a turn on this catwalk and model your look. I think it can be pretty much ANY look. If, for instance, you rock a fresh Kinko's Manager style, then you are all set. Or Elizabethan Fop. Whatever. You can walk.
We play early in the night (8:30). Captain Ahab is also playing. YEAH. CAPTAIN AHAB. They are not playing early (11:30). You should ideally see both of us and everyone in between.
I should note that, unlike most other Sean Carnage shows, the LA's Got Talent shows aren't at Pehrspace. It's at Sancho on Sunset, near the Echo. Please RSVP on the Fashion Night Facebook Page! Thanks! We love you!
