Mississippi Studios Boise (Portland)
Formed by singer/songwriter Joshua Spacek in late 2009, self-described Portland "soul pop" band (think Marshall Crenshaw, not Daptone) Monarques swiftly rose to prominence on the strength of a stellar, five-track EP and a frighteningly energetic live show. In early 2010, the group was invited to perform on the NPR-syndicated Prairie Home Companion, and there were rumors of a sizable label bidding war to sign the band. Despite a deluge of well-deserved accolades that continued over the following year (including a coveted slot in the other weekly's Best New Band poll in 2011), the big crossover everyone thought was inevitable never really materialized. The group released the mini-LP Let's Make Love Come True in 2012 before quietly disbanding. Tonight marks the band's first show together in nearly four years, and according to a Facebook status update, they'll debut new material in addition to "old favorites." Cross your fingers they're back for good. MORGAN TROPER
