The Monolith Special
OHMYGOD OHMYGOD my loves, it’s time for MONOLITH!!!!!!
Be sure to check out Donnybrook’s coverage from last year (here and here), as well as from 2007 (here and here), and know that we will be there again this year, in comfortable (yet stylish) shoes, flashing press and photo passes in your FACES, having tailgate parties in the VIP parking lot (come by and say hi!), and just generally having more fun than you.
In honor of this end-of-summer music festival which has become a ritual for yours truly, I’m doing a two-fer this week, my beloveds, two local artists playing MONOLITH. Be sure to check them out at Red Rocks this weekend.
This week’s Most Fuckable Rockstars are….
Danielle from Danielle Ate The Sandwich and Yonnas from The Pirate Signal!!!!!
Band: Danielle Ate The Sandwich, guitar and mandolin and singer.
Why She’s This Week’s Most Fuckable Rockstar: Oh lordy this chick is a nerdy hipster sex kitten. The boys with the button-down plaid shirts and the comic book collections are CRAZY for her. My nerdy-hipster friend Chris put it best: “Oh my god she has the voice of an angel. And she knows how to make fun of herself.”
Probable Lovemaking Style: Nerd-sex. Don’t knock it, jocks, nerd-sex is the hottest thing out there. Imagine sexy librarian glasses paired with a deep intellectual kama-sutra-like knowledge of doin’ the nasty that can only come from being smart enough to read up on the subject.
Where to find her: Danielle Ate The Sandwich will play the MONOLITH festival on Saturday at 3pm at the madeloud.com stage. www.monolithfestival.com
Band: MC, The Pirate Signal
Why He’s This Week’s Most Fuckable Rockstar: Yonnas is an intellectual rapper, using his background and family’s refugee story as a basis for hard-hitting, angry, difficult lyrics and strong beats. If you want to hear some Black-Eyed Peas style “tonight-is-gonna-be-super-fly-and-fun” shit, DO NOT listen to The Pirate Signal.
Also, Pirate Signal’s influences, according to their myspace page, are “Sex, Violence, and Radiohead.” How hot is that?!
Probable Lovemaking Style: Their sound is like “that point when you’re having sex and your face goes numb and your heart feels like it’s going to burst out of your chest.” (Ed. Note: Well said, Pirate Signal! That sounds like something that Ivyy Goldberg herself could have written!) So, I guess doin’ it with Yonnas might involve a bit of facial numbness. Consult a medical professional if numbness persists after your heart bursts out of your chest, as this may be a symptom of a more serious condition.
Possible Drawbacks: Besides your chest bursting and whatnot? Well, nothing.
Where to find him: The Pirate Signal plays the MONOLITH festival, Sunday at 2:20 PM at the Radius Earphones Stage. www.monolithfestival.com
