Michael Nesmith Playing With the Monkees Friday Night in Monterey

by Paul Cashmere, Noise11

Original Monkees member Mike Nesmith will perform live with the band again tonight in Monterey.

Mike announced the news on his Facebook page saying

so “the guys” are coming to Monterey — I am ahead of schedule on my book “Infinite Tuesday”, — the fires are almost out — and they sent me a nice invitation to come play at the State Theatre with them — and so I am.

I haven’t played in a while — hand’s a little stiff — but I can do a couple or three songs with them that I would really enjoy.

I changed the strings on my Gretsch this afternoon — tuned it up — gave it a polish — and — This Friday August 5th in Monterey at the State Theatre. One time only for now — still have to deliver the book — but the delivery is getting closer faster than I thought.

No heartaches felt — no longer lonely — Nights of waiting finally won me happiness — that’s all rolled up in you :)

see you there I hope.

Mike performed with the band via Skype back in June. He also appears on their latest album, Good Times!
