USAISAMONSTER

-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...
