Monotonix & Old Time Relijun

Monotonix Show Flyer

*(The above flyer is obviously not for the show I saw, but is the only cool looking one I could find).

So over the weekend, I saw this band Monotonix (from Tel Aviv, Israel) and Old Time Relijun (from Olympia, WA) at Pomona College. I missed Monotonix’s show at The Smell in downtown LA the night before, so I was forced to drive out to Pomona if I wanted to see them. Pomona is about a 40 minute drive for me, not too bad.

I arrived to see only the last 2 songs of Monotonix’ set, which was still cool. They played in the audience as usual (instead of on the stage). My friend and I helped the drummer set his drums up on the bar for the last song, and also helped him play them. I ended up getting one of their shirts. The other band, Old Time Relijun, I knew nothing about except that they were on K Records. The singer/guitarist plays a $20 guitar, and they have an upright bass player and a sax player. They turned out to be good and got into several hypnotic grooves. Overall the whole show was a great time.

You can check both bands out here…

Love the album cover visual. I’m curious to see what the show t-shirt looks like. Could you post the pic?
