About The Hall Monitors
The Hall Monitors formed in 2006, earning instant attention with their song called “Girls,” which immediately found recognition by Little Steven’s Underground Garage radio network. Little Steven asked the band to open for the DC leg of the Underground Garage’s nationwide tour headlined by the legendary New York Dolls. The song began to get radio and podcast play around the country and the world and 100 shows later, in 2007, The Hall Monitors were hand-selected to play the world famous Cavestomp! festival headlined by The Sonics. The Hall Monitors made history with this performance as it was the first and only time that an unsigned band ever played the annual festival. Afterwards, The Hall Monitors found themselves in the middle of a bidding war as a flurry of national and international record labels fought for their attention. In 2008, the band signed with Little Steven’s Wicked Cool Records and a full-length album is expected soon. In 2009, The Hall Monitors have been picked to showcase at SXSW and will be hosting a party featuring Eli Paperboy Reid and The True Loves, The Urges, and Powersolo.
The Hall Monitors are well known for their wildly energetic live shows, which counter the stand-still do-nothings throughout much of today’s music. The Hall Monitors play rock and roll in the raw, whipping up their audiences into a fever pitch of primitive floor-shaking excitement. Their howling vocals, booze-soaked guitar riffs, foot-stomping shuffle beats, and blistering bass lines are resurrecting the power and passion of real rock and roll one song at a time. As a result, they have earned supporting slots with some of the best rock and roll acts in the world, including:
The Sonics, The New York Dolls, Eddie Angel, Jon Spencer, The Lyres, The Fleshtones, The Woggles, The Chesterfield Kings, The Wildebeests, The Detroit Cobras, The Charms, The Supersuckers, The Whigs, The Hi-Risers, Robert Gordon, and many more.
