The Monolators 1/11/11 - LaBrie's, Glendale, CA.
Last week, The Monolators continued with their month-long Tuesday "pretzel and no-repeated songs" residency (presented by Radio Free Silverlake) at LaBrie's in Glendale. Like the first night, the second one continued to live up to it's promise - many pretzels were consumed (even pretzel cookies!) and we were treated to a completely different set of material spanning The Monolator's vast catalog.
The setlist was another mix of the old and the new - from one of their oldest "Santy Anno" (unreleased) to their newest "Ruby, I'm Changing My Number" (off the recently-released "Silver Cities/Ruby, I'm Changing My Number" Double EP) The song "Your Mother's Lover Eating Cake," which was featured in online preview for this show, has an interesting backstory that can be read about here. Due to audience demand for an encore, they pulled out their cover of Golden Smog's "Pecan Pie" - which happened to be one of the cover songs done for those who contributed a certain amount of money to The Monolator's recent Kickstarter project. Enjoy.
Another perspective of the show can be found here at Rock NYC Live and Recorded.
