  • HEY, HEY, HE’S A MONKEE!

HEY, HEY, HE’S A MONKEE!

Michael Nesmith

You can’t keep a good Monkee down, and while the tragic passing of Davy Jones hit the music world — and obviously his former bandmates — hard, Mike Nesmith is on the road treating fans to a set that will likely feature Monkees classic and a few solo tunes as well (“Joanne,” anybody?). Nesmith was the thinking man’s Monkee; clad in his trademark wool cap, he tossed out dry one-liners in his barely perceptible Texan twang, almost blasé compared to the antics of chipper Jones, oddball Tork and comical Dolenz. Ultimately, Nesmith was the Monkee who went on to a fruitful career, becoming a country-rock trailblazer with his First National Band, pioneering music videos and video art with 1981’s Elephant Parts and earning his executive producer credit on the now-famous cult movie Repo Man. And yet, he remains at heart a performer, and this week offers an irresistible chance to see him do his thing.
