The band name comes from the idea of the “Hundredth Monkey Effect” in which a learned behavior spreads instantaneously from one group of monkeys to all related monkeys once a critical number is reached. A pretty cool idea about the spread of information if I do say so…
But perhaps they’re more known now for their lead singer Jackson Rathbone (aka Jasper from the Twilight Saga you twi-hards) who’s soothing vocals add to the lovely sounds of their music. Or if there are any ABC Family Greek fans out there (I will forever be part of the I <3 Cappie fan club) Jerad Anderson, the guitarist & back-up vocals singer, played Casey’s underage heartthrob in the episode with all the puppies!
Whatever your reasons are for loving this band, thanks to the awesome guys at Goldenvoice I have a few pairs of tickets to the 100 Monkey’s concert at the El Rey on August 25th to give-a-way to some lucky Blogging.LA readers.
So leave a comment below telling me what/who you’re most excited about seeing & I’ll pick winners on Tuesday August 23rd @ 12PM PST.
