The latest youthful band to grab the coveted Monday night residency over at Detroit Bar is Huntington Beach-based Big Monsta. But their sound is anything but what that name would suggest (read: not some douchy club DJ wearing fake gold chains, nor a band playing any sub-genre containing the word "core"). The group, fronted by singer/songwriter Jimmy Hua, plays music that's cool and crisp and dreamy—check out the song "Summer Love" for a romantic mind trip back to the beach. They're new and they've got potential—plus a CD release party on the 28th, the last night of their residency. New-music-philes, this one is for you.
Mondays, 8 p.m. Starts: Jan. 7. Continues through Jan. 28, 2013
