Monkey Lizards is a San Francisco bay area band formed by singer-songwriter John Thayer, bassist Olsen Miguel Baez, and drummer Brian Surano. They released their first album in April of 2017 and play in pubs, cafes, house parties, and on the street when you least expect them. The songs are about love, devastation, Kylo Wren turning to the darkside, finding your parallel self in the multiverse, reminiscing, sunglasses to fight fascism, and hope. My friend Tim Nenninger mixed and mastered it in Albuquerque , NM the place where much of my heart still lies. This show at Bl;acksmith Square could be an album release show to say hello to Fall (two thirds of us are teachers), you might have seen us at some shows and street playing over the summer.
