Live from Sasquatch: Monotonix madness

I was planning to wait until I got back to Tacoma to post a Sasquatch photo gallery. But after witnessing Tel Aviv garage-rock madmen Israel’s Monotonix over at the Sasquatch Music Festival’s Wookie stage, I had to give you a little taste of what you may have missed. Check it out.

Things I learned about Monotonix today: They don’t like the actually use the stage, instead preferring to set up shop amid or even on top of their fans. Ring master Ami Shalev demands lots of crowd participation. Plus, he sweats a lot. (Ewww! He got some on me as I took these shots.) And just in case you still doubt their bad boy credentials, their bio in the Sasquatch festival guide says they’ve “had the cops called on them more times than you.” Unless, of course, you’re DMX, of course. Click here to see what happened last time they did Bumbershoot.
