The Monarch Review is hosting a benefit show at the Tractor Tavern on May 12th (doors at 8pm) for the victims of the tragic Oso mudslide. Dozens of people have lost their lives and hundreds of people have lost their homes. We are hoping to raise some money to help these folks, our Washington family. We are pleased and thankful that Mary Lambert, La Luz and Star Anna have signed on to perform. Tickets are $25 and all of the money goes to the Cascade Valley Hospital Foundation. Check out their videos below to get hyped then buy tickets here!

She captures these awkward, human moments in rich paintings. We wanted to catch up with Anne, who was a contributor to our third print edition, Monarch #3, and ask her about her work.

5am brought us a pitch black morning on this long awaited adventure to Treefort Music Fest in Boise, ID, but thank goodness the rain from the night before had stopped.

While our drummer and electric guitarist fried up some potatoes and brewed the coffee, our auxiliary percussionist and I stepped out to face the trunk of the Rhino (the Buick […]
