Sean Carnage, the iconic independent promoter whose weekly shows at Pehrspace in Historic Filipinotown have introduced many of L.A.’s most important experimental bands, is ending his weekly run, he announced Friday.

Says Carnage in a statement:

“It’s been an incredible ten years of Monday music, but now it’s time for a break. We started in 2005. Back then it didn’t seem that the shows—which were stylistically mixed-up on purpose—would ever last more than a couple weeks. Thanks to you, we lasted ten years. So many bands got their start in L.A. at Monday Night shows: Skin Town, Health, Dan Deacon, Future Islands, Schwarz, Juiceboxxx, Nosaj thing, clipping, IE, Nicole Kidman, Corima, and over 800 other bands and performers.”

An outpouring of thanks from artists, fans and promoters followed.
