Sock Monster/No Rehearsals Double Header at Tierney's This Friday, Nov. 4

Come on out this Friday, Nov. 4, for a local band double header for a good cause featuring two PWR bands: Sock Monster and their special guests The No Rehearsals, upstairs at Tierney’s, raising money to help support WFMU, their favorite local radio station.

Sock Monster—John Paul Uva (guitar, keyboard, vocals), Jim Kvoriak (guitar, vocals) Bob Terhune (bass, vocals) and Andy Yeates (drums)—will play their smart pop/punk covers, many from obscure artists you can hear only on an independent station like WFMU.

The No Rehearsals, featuring Parents Who Rock founder Alma Schneider on vocals, will start off the evening with a fun set of eclectic covers. The band, which features a ragtag group of ne'er-do-practice musicians, includes Miguel Rodriguez on drums, and from Sock Monster, Uva on guitar, as well as Terhune, sitting in on bass for this show.

Both bands have pledged to donate the money they bring in to the station, which is currently having a silent fundraiser. 

Music starts at 9 p.m. $5 cover. Tierney’s is located at 136 Valley Road, Montclair.

Mt. Hebron Parents Ready to Rock the Mount, Tomorrow Night, Saturday, Feb. 27


Several Parents Who Rock-ers will be performing tomorrow, Saturday, February 27, at Rock the Mount, Mt. Hebron Middle School’s band night fundraiser, upstairs at Tierney’s.

The show, from 8 p.m. to 1 a.m., will feature Mt. Hebron parent rock ‘n’ rollers, playing with their bands to raise money for the school’s PTA.

The Thousand Pities will take the stage first. Singer/guitarist Matt Davis started out in the ‘80s and ‘90s playing in the western Massachusetts indie band, the Vestryman, touring a lot and sharing stages with the likes of Robyn Hitchcock, Aimee Mann and Green Day. He took some time off for family and to set down some new Jersey roots, then started playing again with The Thousand Pities. Davis will kick off the night singing and playing an acoustic set of his jangly power-pop originals, with special guests—he'll be joined by some of his friends from Speed the Plough.

Next up will be Whatserface, five local moms who met while their kids were at Rand School and decided to start a rock ‘n’ roll band. They bring a girl-powered approach to their quirky pop and rock songs, some familiar and others from a little further down the charts.

Last up will be Sock Monster, who play a power pop/punk mix of shoulda-been-hits that span the time from the ‘60s through the present, from the Kinks to the Replacements to the Plimsouls and the Gin Blossoms—all the great stuff that should and would get played on the radio if radio was good!

The event will raise money for the Mt. Hebron PTA.
The show begins at 8 p.m. Tickets are $20 until midnight Friday, February 26, from 
Brownpapertickets.com, or $25 at the door that night—all money raised goes to benefit the Mt. Hebron PTA. Tierney’s is located at 136 Valley Road. Montclair.
