Seattle Weekly has spilled way more than our share of ink lavishing
praise on Tel Avivbased garage punks Monotonix, urging anyone with
two ears and a pulse to catch them live, reviewing their shows and
post-show parties, and generally spazzing out about how amazing and
truly kinetic they are onstage ("stage" being a very loose term,
considering their tendency to exploit every square inch of a venue).
Well, why stop now? If you only go to one bar show all year, this
really should be it. The boys are rolling through Seattle with new
drummer Haggai Fershtman in support of their forthcoming Drag City
debut, Body Language. Really, the only legitimate concern I have about
this show is that Monotonix probably should be playing a venue larger
than the Comet this time around; selling out early is a given. With
the Valley and Black Eyes & Neckties. HANNAH LEVIN
Listen to a sample of Monotonix's "Summers and Autumns."
