One of the best things about being a music fan in Los Angeles is the many opportunities to see bands working out their new material live in small venues before recording. Tonight Mary and Eli Chartkoff of Monolators fame are back at pehrspace presenting “First Fridays with Mary and Eli,” a yearlong monthly residency that is a reboot of the residency the Chartkoffs hosted at Mr. T’s Bowl from 2006-2008. Tonight’s bill is a stellar lineup of new projects from RFSL faves The Pretty Flowers (Noah Green of the Henry Clay People) and Madame Headdress (the latest invention of Mary and Eli) as well as familiar favorites Scott Schultz (The LOOOONG Ride! Blog), Le Cos, and the indomitable Manhattan Murder Mystery.
First Fridays with Mary and Eli (Scott Schultz, Le Cos, The Pretty Flowers, Manhattan Murder Mystery and Madame Headdress) happens Friday June 6 at pehrspace, 325 Glendale Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90026. Music starts at 9pm, all ages, $5.
Madame Headdress is the latest "Experimental ish, art, soul, protopunk cute, noiseless noise" from Eli and Mary of The Monolators.
