Hey Monea! Halloween Album Release with Special Guest Mark Leach

When: Sat., Oct. 31, 9 p.m. 2015

In 2009, Hey Monea! released its first EP but then took four years to follow it up with 2013’s Cheap Souvenirs. For it, band recruited Dennis Herring, who produced the first few Modest Mouse records, to record the disc at his studio in Oxford, Miss. Herring brings out the band's soulful side on songs such as "Pollyanna" and "Stay," tunes with catchy, radio friendly melodies that recall the alt-rock of the mid-'90s. Tonight, the band celebrates the release of its latest effort The 50, another strong effort. The “Buenos Noches” features on a lazy Latin vibe and “Filthy Rich” benefits from cooing backing vocals and skittish percussion. The album effectively shows off the band’s musical range. (Niesel)
