Just days after releasing their Steve Albini-produced sophomore LP Not Now, Israel’s Monotonix has crossed the Atlantic and is swinging through their one-time stomping grounds for a show at One Eyed Jacks. Banned from nearly every venue in their hometown of Tel Aviv, this guitar-driven garage rock band’s live shows have become infamous for their haphazard fire play and their propensity for inspiring already rabid crowds to start uproarious dance parties.

Local experimental/loud noise band Caddywhompus will be there to further contribute to the madness, as will classically inspired punks Why Are We Building Such a Big Ship?, also fresh off the release of a new album.

02.01: Daikaiju + Dead People + In Elevators – Siberia

02.02: Brad Walker and Simon Lott Duo + WATIV – Allways Lounge
