On Tap: El Monstero

There’s a reason they have to have upward of five shows at the same venue during a tour.

El Monstero is a Pink Floyd tribute band.

El Monstero is a visual and audial assault on the senses.

Both of these things are true, but I only knew of the first of those truths when I first saw El Monstero in concert. I didn’t know about the psychedelic aspect of the show, the elaborate sets, the costumes, and the droves of fans. I didn’t expect a vaguely menacing lead singer and near-operatic guitar solos. I didn’t expect to actively say “What the fuck?” at least 17 times during the show. I didn’t expect the pig, but come on. Who would have seen that coming?

I know that now, and I tell you, there’s a reason they have to have upward of five shows at the same venue during a tour. You don’t want to miss this. They sell out every year, so you’re going to want to get your tickets soon. | Melissa Cynova
