Gary Burger of the Monks to appear tomorrow night
Attention obscure '60s garage band fanatics: head down to the Bryant-Lake Bowl tomorrow night for a screening of the new documentary Monks: The Transatlantic Feedback, which chronicles the group of five local musicians who formed a band in cold-war Germany while serving as GIs. Monks made a name for themselves by dressing in traditional monk garb and creating some of the weirdest, most genre-bending music of the 1960s.
Fun fact: Monks lead singer Gary Burger, who is appearing at tomorrow night's screening for a Q&A session, is currently the mayor of Turtle River, Minnesota.
Monks: The Transatlantic Feedback screening with Gary Burger Saturday, November 1 7:00 pm (6:00 doors) and 10:00 pm (9:30 doors) $8, tickets available online or by phone: 612.825.4949
