Live & Local preview: Monkeysoop


Tonight (Thursday, in case you've lost track) â?? we're fully expecting to get our asses kicked by experimental metal-heads Monkeysoop. The bottom-heavy foursome â?? that's not a fetish website, BTW; the band features both lead and rhythm bass â?? will open for Toledo, Ohio's cheerily named Mobile Deathcamp at Rock Bottom Tattoo Bar. Mobile Deathcamp features former GWAR bassist Todd "Beefcake the Mighty" Evans who, in full GWAR costume looks like this:

If that frightens you don't worry. Mobile Deathcamp don't wear costumes, and with the make-up off Evans is less a Beefcake than a big ol' cuddly teddy bear.

Did anybody else just piss themselves a little?

Tickets are $6 for adults, $8 for minors. The doors open at 8pm and Monkeysoop is scheduled to go on around 9:15pm. Check out the show, then read my review next week and point out all the ways in which I'm a total fuckwit. That is if Beefcake Evans doesn't eat all our pancreases first.

Here's Monkeysoop doing some pretty sweet synchronized fingertapping.
