Q&A with Monotonix; Playing 529, December 8

By Giles Turnbull, photo by Josh Sanseri Monotonix is a three-piece rock band, originally from Tel Aviv, Israel, who tour year-long on an adrenalin rush of chaos and creativity.  Monotonix typically set up in front of the stage, believing totally in audience interaction; don’t be surprised if they steal your beer.

Cee-Lo Green The Lady Killer Elektra By Al Kaufman Was it gimmicky, stupidity, brilliance, or just plain arrogance to release a first single with a title that all but guaranteed no radio airplay?
