Uncle Monk - Pub Heineken - July 2nd 2010











Band : Uncle Monk
Venue : Pub Heineken (Festival International De Jazz De Montreal)
Town (country) : Montreal, QC (Canada)
Date : July 2nd 2010
Grade : 3/5

Setlist :
n/a

Comments : A free open air show by Tommy Ramone's new band caught my interest, despite the total change in musical direction. The setlist included improbable bluegrass covers of The Ramones' "I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend" and The Clash's "I Fought The Law". Unfortunately, the seated and fenced "venue" was packed with festival goers more interested in banal conversation over a beer than the show. I guess the "free" event was more of an excuse for forced consumption of the main Dutch brew, and money was more important than music.
