Sound Advice: Monotonix at Hi-Tone Tonight



Hairy, hard-rockin' Israeli trio Monotonix are a couple of days late for Gonerfest, but this loud band with a reputation for chaotic live shows would have fit right in. After being purportedly banned from half the clubs in their native Tel Aviv, Monotonix have been taking their provocative, head-banging show (think AC/DC meets G.G. Allin, or something like that) across the U.S., releasing a strong American debut, Body Language, on the Chicago indie label Drag City.

Monotonix plays the Hi-Tone Cafe tonight, headlining a bill that also includes local metal band Evil Army and Turbo Fruits, a spinoff of sorts from defunct Nashville punks Be Your Own Pet. Showtime is 10 p.m. Admission is $10.

Here's a taste of Monotonix, at a show in Dallas earlier this year:
