Gary Burger of the Monks planning rare live appearance
It's not often these days that Gary Burger's name pops up on a show calendar. In recent years, he's better known as the mayor of small northern Minnesota town Turtle River than he is the frontman of influential '60s garage rock band the Monks. But the Monks legacy lives on, thanks to a 2009 reissue of their seminal album, Black Monk Time, and a book written by one of Burger's only surviving bandmates, Eddie Shaw.
