Fondue Monks will be playing their last gig of the 2004 year this Thursday (12.30.04) at Sherlock’s Pub on West Grey. Rumor has it the band should have a new studio CD sometime in 2005 (their first full-length studio CD since 1998’s Baila Toca). The show begins at 9:30 p.m. More information on the Monks can be found at their website. There is also a fan club website that a lot of information and photos.
