Monica Bang is a band created and fronted by Kyra Tantao in collaboration with Huxley Rittman of Hux & The Hitmen. Monica Bang explores social justice, political protest, and the melding of anger and joy. Monica is about sweat, dancing, screaming, and fun. While there are too many genres in the world to identify with just one, one might say that Monica Bang is punk. Or perhaps jump core noise pop riot grrrl outer space music.
Most recently, Monica Bang was put into a new perspective as 6 original songs were performed by the original band, in character, as a part of the theatrical concert experience of KIL Claps Back, created by Latinx theatre artists Isabella Casado Pelz, Línda Vanessa Perla, and Kyra Tantao.
