Last night at the St Paul Eagles we premiered a new part time member of Monica and the Molecules. It was Metal Steel, who played some strings. We were happy to see a few friends out for this premier and to those friends who also provided support for the St Paul Aerie for the Arts events. Our next show will be at The Uptown Bar on Wednesday, July 23rd and it will be a free show.

Well, for everyone who passed over our show last night, be it for the holiday or for other reasons, really missed a fun and entertaining night. Monica and the Molecules kicked off the night with a mix of rock and cabaret songs, which may have opened the audience to things they have never dreamed. We received many nice compliments and thoroughly enjoyed the other three bands. We always enjoy Chooglin', and were happy to open for them once again.

One side note, though, drummer Buckminster Fullerene was distinctly missing last night and in his place was some odd Dr. Seussian creature calling himself Caffiene-y Lou Who. We'll have to find out what happened to our Bucky Ball before the next show.

We've added a new You Tube video:

That's Spaghetti

and it's about time for this one! This was from the Saint Agnes show in August, 2007.

Monica went to the Turf Club Tuesday night to see a presentation by the Minnesota Historical Society.  It was "The History of Hip:  The Beats"  Presenters Maria Damon (professor at U of M) and poet J. Otis Powell discussed and read beat poetry and the famous beat poets.  There wasn't much discussion regarding Monica's favorite two beats, Lawrence Ferlinghetti and Jack Kerouac, but we learned about some others with whom we were not familiar.  Here are two examples that stayed with us:

We really enjoyed both of these and felt that they captured the beat mentality of the time.  Monica's father claims to have been a "beatnik", and while these poems certainly do not fit his ideas, after listening to the lecture, Monica can understand the part of him that was a beat.

Well, Molecule Ethanol and Monica are working on a new project for local arts. In order to help everything flow, we started a MySpace for the project (more on that later as we work out some details). But, we also decided to open a MySpace for Monica and the Molecules. We are currently just leading people to Live Journal, which I believe to be better if you want lots of information easily, but it opens up new doors for people to find our Live Journal. So, check out MySpace, but we will always be posting here. Our next show is March 19th at Big V's.

We have yet another posting to You Tube, this time, one of our originals "Only Thing Wilder (than me is you)" from our 4th Street Station performance at Halloween-time. Only Thing Wilder
