USAISAMONSTER @ the 1896 (more by Lori Baily)
USAISAMONSTER

-founded in early 2000 by Tom Hohmann and Colin Langenus out of the ruins of Boston legends Bull Roarer

-spring 2000, 1st incarnation includes 7 people, releases self titled diy cdr, does 1 week south eastern usa tour, breaks up

-summer 2000, becomes 4 piece with Jeremy Harris and Adam Tabor, diy releases trippy yet wholesome cdr, weedblood cdr, and soul jerker 7"er, does 1 week north eastern USA tour, breaks up -[USAISAMONSTER's web bio]

That's how the USAISAMONSTER story starts on its website - nine years, several line-ups (see 2-person and 4-person incarnations below), and lots and lots of shows later, the band's Myspace reports that USAISAMONSTER's last show ever will happen May 9th at the Market Hotel (full line-up below).

Before that final gig, the band also has a monthlong European tour in April, and two other planned NYC shows: on March 25th, USAISAMONSTER will join Arabrot (Norway), Uke of Spaces (Maine), Caethua (Maine) and Weirding Module at Brooklyn's Death By Audio. Then, on Thursday, April 2nd , USAISAMONSTER plays with Library is on Fire, Pterodactyl and Dj Scotty Karate at Glasslands Gallery.

All tour dates, a video from the band's "Brooklyn vs. Baltimore" show appearance on January 30th, and a full three-song set from Brilliant Corners in Keene, NH (recorded on April 21st, 2007), below...

awesome awesome band.

Boy, I've seen these guys through ALL of the changes. They have been living the dream, as far as I'm concerned, and are model D.I.Y rock and roll citizens. I hope to see more folks imitating their way of life. Come see my Bull Roarer video on youtube. My handle is rokarolla. I recorded their full length CD at the location shown in the vid.

"sad but triumphant night"

Was it as epic as the Bjork/Dirty Projectors show? I mean will it live on in infamy like that show? I mean will you be telling your kids 20 years from now how you were at this show?

Are you serious. "Will it live on in infamy like that show?" What a self-righteous, ingnorant, stupid thing to say. I have nothing against either of those bands/people, but what the fuck does this have to do with USAisaMonster? What, did nobody talk to you at the show so you need to come here and say "guess where I was"? Just go to Pitchfork and try to find yourself in the pictures along with all of the other rock critics and bloggers patting themselves on the back.

USAisaMonster was great. Almost anyone whose opinion about rock music that I respect knows this. Hell, B. Chippendale was on the last Bjork record, for chrissakes. Why do you think that is? Ask Chippendale what he thinks of USAisaMonster, or better yet, why don't you talk shit about them to him.
