Monotonix & fan in San Francisco
"Shelev, after a rowdy and rambunctious set, stated that he was 46-years old, their drummer was about to become a father, and their guitarist had some seeds to sow as a single Israeli. He then instructed the crowd to tweet, text and, actually, drive to San Francisco and Austin to follow them on their last tour ever. Whether this is true or just another stunt in their stunt-filled show is yet to be seen. -[OneThirtyBPM]
That report comes from Monotonix's LA show at The Echoplex on 1/27, the day before they played Rickshaw Stop in San Francisco with Nodzzz (who just signed to Woodsist) and Ty Segall. The pictures in this post are from the San Fran show.
Monotonix's final (??) round of US dates in support of their new LP Not Yet is ongoing. The band will play Birmingham, Alabama tonight (2/1) and eventually end up at 285 Kent Ave on 2/5 for their final (??) show in NYC...

If you've never seen Monotonix live (which is pretty insane), this may be your last chance. Not Yet is out now via Drag City.
Ty Segall is scheduled to play NYC TWICE in early March on his way to SXSW: at Mercury Lounge on 3/8 with Devin Therriault (tickets) and Death By Audio on March 10th with Heavy Cream.
