UK-by-way-of-Australia electronic duo Monarchy made their live NYC debut on December 10 at Highline Ballroom featuring support from St. Lucia. The show was one of only a pair of East Coast dates (NYC and DC) after playing shows at Coachella and on the West Coast earlier this year. Pictures and a video from Highline Ballroom are below.
The DC show didn't go so smoothly though, though it had little to do with their performance..
While we played in Washington DC on Thursday, a girl scammed into our dressing room and stole two of our masks. One of these is an expensive, custom made mask that is irreplaceable. It may have been taken by the girl, or left around the venue. If you took it, or picked it up, can you please return it to the venue, or by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll arrange pickup. We won't ask any questions, or take action, we just need the mask back. Please do the right thing and return it, we'd appreciate it. Thanks.So far the band has not received the mask back yet and they did report that the thief brazenly "was in the audience wearing one of our masks. It was very 'Being John Malkovich'". They had a better time in NYC
