Looking for something cool to do now that it’s hot outside? Come on out for a beer and some great music as Parents Who Rock's Sock Monster returns to Tierney’s Tavern, this Saturday night, July 16. It’s a 9 p.m. $5 cover.
Sock Monster is John Paul Uva, guitar/vocals; Jim Kvoriak, guitar/vocals; Bob Terhune, bass/vocals; and Andy Yeates, drums. They find great songs from The Kinks, The Clash, the Replacements, Squeeze, Old 97s, and Elvis Costello, and mix them up with more alternative gems, covers like the Only Ones’ “Another Girl Another Planet,” Guided By Voices “Quality of Armor,” or the Jayhawk's "Save it For a Rainy Day," the track they contributed to the second Parents Who Rock CD, Let 'em Play.
“These are the songs that get us going—even if they’re not well known,” Uva explains. “A song like ‘A Million Miles Away’ by the Plimsouls. It’s a great song, and you know even if people don’t know it, they’re going to like it when they hear it.
Tierney's is located at 138 Valley Road in Montclair.
