Twilight actor hits Charlotte with his band, 100 Monkeys

Posted By on Fri, Jul 22, 2011 at 1:05 PM

I was kinda curious about the band 100 Monkeys, having not heard of them before they were booked to perform at The Fillmore Charlotte for tonight's gig.

Turns out the band formed a few years ago out in California... oh yeah, and one of the band members has been in the Twilight movies. :::cue teenage girls screaming:::

Jackson Rathbone plays Jasper Hale in the Twilight Saga and plays the guitar, bass, drums, keyboard, mandolin, trumpet and harmonica in addition to singing. One of his bandmates, Jerad Anderson, is also an actor.

The band released its major label debut, Liquid Zoo, on June 28. It's not as polished as you might expect — hints of '60s rock and punk are sprinkled in there.
