Part of an ongoing series.

On Saturday, locals The Monolators (MySpace) -- covered previously here -- celebrated the release of their new album Don't Dance at Spaceland (MySpace) in Silver Lake, along with Correatown (MySpace), You, Me, and Iowa (MySpace), and Summer Darling (MySpace).

The Monolators finale, "We Fell Dead", was nothing short of epic, with drummer Mary Chartkoff on gong and a whopping nine bassists onstage, which included bandmembers from the aforementioned Correatown and Summer Darling, as well as I Make This Sound (MySpace), Red Rockets Glare (MySpace), The Voyeurs (MySpace), The Flying Tourbillon Orchestra (MySpace), and The Henry Clay People (MySpace).
