Signed to Hardly Art Records, sister label to Sub-Pop and a hotbed for certified-fresh alternative sounds, Jacuzzi Boys are a punk beacon for the city and continue to tour at home and internationally. But if you've ever been to Allapattah's Las Rosas on a Friday night, you know Monasterios is also helping keep the sweaty, no-holds-barred spirit of rock 'n' roll alive on the dance floor week after week with his wild DJ sets and guest mixes.
New Times asked Monasterios for his take on Miami's most exciting new rock acts to follow in the New Year:
Mango Hill Records and is one of Miami’s coolest."
Tingy Thick. "Tingy Thick [is] a sexy instrumental band from West Palm. We played with them about a year ago and they absolutely crushed it."
Rick Moon. "Rick Moon is the man that can do it all — multi-instrumentalist and overall cool guy.
Flute Man. "Flute Man holds a very special place in my heart because he happens to be my front-door neighbor and plays the flute in front of his house every day around 5 p.m. I’ve been meaning to get a recording but haven’t had the chance."
