We are devastated to report the unexpected passing of yet another young, wildly talented artist. 29 year old Memphis-based garage rocker, Jay Reatard, passed away in his sleep last night. His body was discovered early this morning by his roommate. The cause of his death is currently under investigation.
“But just as you’d have to be made of stone not to enjoy at least some part of a Monotonix gig, anyone who likes garage rock would have to be an obstinate stickler for originality not to enjoy the best parts– that is, the majority– of [their new album] Where Were You When It Happened?” — Pitchfork.com

Next Friday Madison will be treated to the devastatingly hip retro sounds of one of the Midwest’s greatest cover bands. Described as “combining girl-group hooks and harmonies with high-octane, Motor City garage rock, the Detroit Cobras conjure the 1960s era of Top 40 AM radio and vinyl 45s…singer Rachel Nagy has attitude to burn and the mixed-gender band plays with plenty of rough-hewn energy.” (Amazon.com) We’ve got the full story below, plus free mp3 downloads and a chance to win tickets to their show.
