The Monolators 1/04/11 - LaBrie's, Glendale, CA.
Last week, the previously-much-covered-on-this-blog band The Monolators kicked off their month-long Tuesday "pretzel" residency (presented by Radio Free Silverlake) at LaBrie's in Glendale. Besides the promise of pretzels, this is also a very special residency because the band has promised to "play completely different sets for all four weeks of the residency, different songs every night" (a.k.a no repeats) On a side note, it was the first time we've been to LaBrie's since it was called "The Scene" - we went to see a certain singer-songwriter that now composes music for a certain Wednesday night sitcom on ABC.
The setlist for this show was an interesting one - a few of the songs ("Spandex Hitman" "Take It Outside" and "In My Dreams" - more info about this song here) were some of their earliest from their extensive catalog. The rest of the songs served as a partial "best of," with "Rejection Set Me Free" featuring ex-member Tom Bogon. Fun show and we are looking forward to seeing what the rest of the month brings from them.
