MONSTERFACE is returning to the rock stage..!

But everything is different:
Hang on to your treehouses, crazy-faces, here’s the deal.

MONSTERFACE INDUSTRIES sent us a memo in triple-triplicate indicating that “forthwith we must cease and desist with the breadth and the width.”

You know the drill. Our last show in December was the retirement of not only Captain of Awesome, Perfect Jimmy, but also the retirement of the ginormous, glorious, cumbersome, and lumbering stage show of inflatable glory and rag tag yay.

Take it in, the band previously known as Uncle Monsterface is currently known as MONSTERFACE.  In exchange for one lost “Uncle,” we found a powerful, new, all live rock show (and some swords). Straight-up 3-piece awesome-rock songs about ninjas, robots, gary gygax, other robots, flying accountants, Nintendo, zombies, and lobsters.

COLLECTIVE GASP!

We here at Monsterface Industries are thrilled about this change like three kids eating head-sized ice cream cones while riding a talking roller coaster that goes underwater and back in time.

Uncle Monsterface himself left to go to the deli, but we believe it may be in New Delhi. Or in space. He forgot his cell phone. And his shoes and pants. And he took the submarine. Contact the authorities if you see him. Keep your hands away from his mouth at all times.

In short  – no “Uncle” means a change in sound and many many new songs (along with many re-worked old favorites).  It also means that we have replaced the giant monsters,  sock puppet theater, back-tracks and accompanying synchronized videos  with unbridled all-live rock and roll fury that will destroy and re-build your brain.

Less art school, more rock. When the “UNCLE” comes back, the Big Show will, too.

Like Rush before us, we are now drums and guitar with Marty singing while he plays bass. Paradise Dan is still stealing hearts and minds (and souls) with his rock guitar prowess and boy-ish charms. Spooki Olde Eric still hits drums with sticks. Hard. The sock puppets are out looking for their Uncle.

MONSTERFACE is probably now presenting selections from their forthcoming full-length album, “The Rise of The Lava Men”, the story of a rag-tag band of ancient superheroes, as unearthed under the ashes of New Ashville City (in the shadow of Mt. Bombpei), Dino-skeleton Island.

We’re super-excited to present this iteration and era of MONSTERFACE. Rest assured, the sock puppets (and the Perfect Jimmy) are always lodged firmly inside of our collective hearts (a condition that is actually twice as painful as it sounds).

We are making up for not playing in a while by playing as much as possible. If you want us to play in your backyard or on our roof or in your garden or at your prom, let us know.

KEEP BEING AWESOME, COME ROCK OUT WITH US at ANY AND ALL OF THESE SHOWS!

Ever your loyal,
MONSTERFACE

This is something of a reprisal of our amazing show last October with Peelander and Math, with the added bonus of LIMA! October’s show melted no less than 8 billion faces, 32,000 legs, and an over-sized candle. Now in BROOKLYN, all ages, and with our other AMAZING FRIENDS OF LOVE LIMA and new friends ESKALATORS, this will rock. A seriously very must see show. This show means business.

F-nice productions presents
Uncle Monsterface (WORLD PREMIERE OF NEW LIVE DRUMMER!)
with
Math the Band
The Silver City
Business for Pleasure
We are told that the show starts at 8sharp, as muzak must stop by midnight. We are also told that we are on 3rd, before those spazzy math-starz.

Because Facebook is sorta dumb in a lot of ways, there are two event pages, one set up by F-nice, the other by Math. Maybe we should do one, too?! Kooky Facebook. Anyways, make sure you tell it everything that you are doing in triplicate, or you will lose your life-license.

Coney Island Rock this Sunday afternoon!

We are playing The Coney Island Museum!
Which is, to us, evidence that we have finally “made it”.
We’ve been rocking pretty hard this summer, and this is the last show before we take a few weeks off, and it’ll be even more special than our normal degree of relative “special-ocity”.

Sunday, August 23

As this show marks the passing of the below-mentioned “Sweat Sexxxy” from the live show, we just might usher in a new stage antic. And it just remind some of you of an old one. Some sort of contest, maybe?

Team team hello!
First and firstly – once again, there is an exciting show this weekend, but we want to make sure that you know that we will be playing right at 7pm, and that we are the only band. We realize this is not standard rock n roll procedures.

And: the exceptionally cool people of wired.com’s GeekDad talked to two of us weirdos from Uncle Monsterface hyping said show! www.wired.com/geekdad/tag/uncle-monsterface. Listen to the whole podcast to hear the wisdom of Paradise Dan and Martyface.
Neat!

Don’t stop there, always read Z from Geekdad’s blog, hipsterplease.com due to its vast awesomeness and its penchant for awesomosity. Why would spellcheck underline that?!

We also want to make sure that you know that we are premiering A BRAND NEW T-SHIRT (for sale) at this rock show, too! By the invincible and mighty and mightily awesome Erc Swanson of The Atomist, featuring Eric’s take on two of the rarer sock puppets – Dr. Alien Eyes M.D, outer space doctor from space, and The Earclops, noteworthy crossword puzzle expert.

And let us not forget the details of that which we are hyping!

Marty’s Sock Puppet Portraits move to Tank in Manhattan, Reception this Thursday

Hello Citizens of Sock Puppet Interest (both general and specific),

Two sock puppet-related events are hurtling towards Manhattan in a sleigh driven by burly, forsaken, and untimely elves…
FIRSTLY:
Did you miss the display of Marty’s newest Sock Puppet Portraits at Brooklyn’s Sputnik? Do you need to see it more? The show is moving to Manhattan! (cue “Movin’ on Up”).

The Tank

New York, NY 10036

Opening Reception: May 14 at 6:30pm

Come for the Opening reception and stick around for the Tank’s amazing Puppet Series, Puppet Playhouse (or just hang out and have some beers, you don’t have to go to Puppet Playhouse). If you do go to Puppet Playhouse, you should know that Marty doesn’t have any work in it. But you should also know that it’s awesome – puppeteers interpreting modern musicians, this month featuring the Magnetic Fields.

THIS show at the Tank foreshadows ANOTHER SHOW AT THE TANK…
