The Minus 5 - Of Monkees and Mem

I'm digging this record. It's Scott McCaughey et al's homage to the Monkees.

Maybe, but the Of Monkees and MEN album is better

They are opening for (and backing up) Alejandro Escovedo on tour in January. I am really looking forward to that show.

On a related note, the Monkees put out a much better record than they had any reason to in 2016. Here's the first single, written by Andy Partridge:

Thanks for the heads up. They're playing here 1/5.

You may or may not have read that Pete Buck will be playing with them on this tour, as well as Kurt Bloch of Fastbacks fame.
These things may or may not make the show even more interesting for you.

I saw that. I'm excited. I'm a big Fastbacks fan. Danny "Pops" Ingram was offered the Fastbacks' drummer job once but, sadly, had to decline.
