Local rock trio Monsoon is looking to shoot a fancy music video. But, like most Athens bands, they're hard up for cash. Rather than go the Kickstarter route—"I just couldn't bring myself to ask folks for money when everyone is so tapped these days," says singer and guitarist Sienna Chandler—the band has teamed with Fun Galaxy on Cherokee Road for a night of roller skating, live music and a few special surprises.
Here's the deal: The good folks at Fun Galaxy have agreed to donate 50 percent of door money this Thursday, Oct. 16 to Monsoon, as long as the band can bring out at least 25 people to the event. For $6, you can skate and hear some sweet tunes and pretty much relive your middle-school years all night long.

Monsoon is reportedly putting the finishing touches on its long-awaited debut LP. Stream the three-song Dead Demo below:
