New Videos!

We recently got together after a too long hiatus to play a short set for a J Inspired Events Fundraiser. Below are a couple of clips from our live version of It Was Yours, as well as a new (until now) unreleased tune, 1829!

It Was Yours:




We just received news that our track Grouch is about to reach 100 downloads on our Soundcloud page! A big thanks goes out to the fans who have downloaded and listened.  Soundcloud caps downloads at 100 per track, so just a reminder that you can pay what you want for Ink! over on our Bandcamp page.

Prepping for a private party tonight, but we’ll be back in the public eye soon! We’re working out some new tunes tonight for you, including a finalized, and as of yet played once or twice TK tune MBB (My Brazilian Bitch), and the live version of It Was Yours.

The News!

Hello Pink Monkey fans.  It’s been a minute.  To catch up briefly:

The Baron has been working on a few of his side projects, including a U2 cover band and developing a Chicago specific music site for musicians. Check it out at

TK has been busy gigging and writing for Four Star Brass Band and Band Called Catch, as well as starting his own website, while continuing to write for Pink Monkey.

Nixxi Koko has been working hard, saving money, and is planning to open his own restaurant/bar in Chicago in the near future.

In Pink Monkey related news, we’ve got a gig coming up in March, playing for a Chicago Hot Glass party! Details are forthcoming, and if you can, you should come, it’s always a blast watching people create with molten sand.

Don’t forget to connect with us on Facebook – on that page you’ll see TK’s latest composition for the band.


See you soon, Internet!

We hope to see you there!

The End of Summer – Pink Monkey News

An overdue hello to all of our fans out there!  Pink Monkey had an eventful end to the summer, continuing our Abbey Pub residency in August, then heading to Northern Michigan for our first ever music festival appearance.  There is some live audio floating around from Meadowfest, and the performance was described as “One of my favorite performances of the festival” by WIDR’s (Kalamazoo) own DJ Bosco.

Pink Monkey has been hard at work writing new songs and is making plans to head back to the studio some time this fall.  We’re hoping for another record to hit Spring 2013.

In the meantime, help support live original music in your city.  Keep an eye on this site, as well as our facebook page for upcoming shows and news!

Hey everyone.  I’ve been working on editing and uploading the video from our CD release in May.  Here are the first three so far.  Check back to see the rest. – TK

Upcoming Shows!

Hello Internet. We have a couple of exciting shows coming up for you. This Saturday we’ll be playing specifically for all of you internet nerds at the Chicago Reddit Global Meetup day. You can find the info on Reddit or Facebook:

We’re also heading back to the Abbey Pub after the success of our CD Release show on June 28th. We’ve got the whole night, so come out to hear Pink Monkey songs old and new. Free!

Thank You!

We would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to everyone who made it out to our CD release show last night!  We had a great time starting this next chapter of Pink Monkey.  We have a lot of video from last night to upload, so be on the lookout for that (for those who couldn’t make it out).  We are also starting production on our very first music video soon.

If you didn’t make it out last night, don’t worry, you can still download a copy of “Ink” from our Bandcamp page:
