MINOT (ex-From Monument to Masses) debuts at the Starry Plough

It stunk when From Monument to Masses broke up, so it’s really exciting to see Matthew Solberg unleashing a new band billed as “Post-Psych Kraut-Punk.” MINOT is a trio with Shannon Corr and Ben Thorne, and the band’s first show ever is a sharp all-local affair with Tartufi and Mwahaha at the Starry Plough on Saturday the 19th.

Mwahaha (ft. Merrill Garbus) – “Love”

Your Heart Breaks – “Torrey Pines (Feat. Kimya Dawson)”
