Monroe Stahr CD out this week

Updates: The First release party will now be at Izumi Sake Bar on the 22nd ... and there will be a Yuyintang release show at the later slot of June 26th.

New Shanghai band Monroe Stahr, fronted by Nicky Almasy known to some from his stint managing the Blues Room, are putting out their CD on Friday. 

I managed to catch the band live when they closed out the night at YYT after the Happy Avenue show. Read the review here. They perform well and have a solid set of catchy traditional rock with acoustic driven hooks.

Another victim of Yuyintang's packed schedule, they will hold a low key release party in the Tsing Tao bar up by Hong Kou Stadium Station on Friday. I recommend it for those who prefer their rock as the other main show that day is Life Journey at YYT with their Bossa Nova inspired indie pop.

Monroe Stahr have a Jimdo site with three of the new tracks available for free download. Go there now and check out Summer Starts Here.
