Monarch at Union Pool
They just can't get enough! French doom greats Monarch have added a third and final NYC show. It happens WEDNESDAY (11/17) at Death By Audio in Brooklyn. The BrooklynVegan-presented show will also feature performances from Vaura (a new project featuring Kevin Hufnagel of Gorguts/Dysrhythmia & Toby Driver of Kayo Dot/Maudlin Of The Well) and Brian Chase & Seth Misterka (Brian of Yeah Yeah Yeahs playing free-jazz with saxophonist Seth Misterka). The show kicks off at 8PM and costs $8!
We already posted pictures from the Monarch/Bloody Panda show at Cake Shop (which happened 11/12 with nutjobs Tinsel Teeth), but until now, haven't posted the shots from the show that happened at Union Pool the following night (11/13). Evoken opened that party with roar (and to similar audience applause), with Bloody Panda following and Monarch batting clean-up. Again, another great showing from both Bloody Panda and Monarch, who sounded incredible on the PA at Union Pool.
