Higher Ground Rocked!


Much love to everyone who came out to Higher Ground on Friday and made it a night to remember!  You all rock, and we love performing these tunes for you.  Special thanks to the folks at Higher Ground for putting on the show, and to Robin Katrick for jumping in on photo & video.  Judging from your reaction to Testify, it sounds like it’s time to start busting out some of the tracks from Battle of Los Angeles and Renegades for future shows.  We hear ya! Stay tuned…

Burning Monk @ Higher Ground 2/12/16

One night.  Two albums.  Your melted face.  Burning Monk will be delivering Rage Against the Machine’s self-titled debut album as well as the epic follow-up, Evil Empire, front-to-back on Friday, 2/12/16 at Vermont’s premier venue for the loudest and funkiest: The Higher Ground (Showcase Lounge).  Tickets are on sale now at Higher Ground’s website, so whether you like the hits or the deep cuts, bring your dancing shoes and your game face because we’re playing all that sh*t.  See you there…


1/22 @ Grizzly’s – Stratton VT

We’ll be Monking it up at Grizzly’s down in Stratton on Friday, 1/22, for those of you who enjoy multiple forms of shred (get it…?).  Here’s the event page on their site.  Looks like they’ve got a video with some imposters on there! jk, we’re sure they are lovely people who have great musical tastes.  But just for accuracy, here’s us doing Freedom, so you can prepare yourselves to rock out with us.

Greetings, humans!

In case you couldn’t tell from the banner, we are Burning Monk, a tribute group playing the brutally funky tunes of Rage Against the Machine!  We are based out of Burlington, VT , and enjoy whipping a crowd into a righteous frenzy with concrete rhythms, super-sonic solos, and the all of those grizzly and prescient lyrics from back when MTV was legit. We want you to come rock out with us.  Stay tuned…
