Twenty Mondays – Houston music history is crowded with talented bands who fell by the wayside on their way to the big leagues, but Twenty Mondays got further than most. That was a deal with L.A.’s Spindletop Records that yielded one album, Twist Inside, and nearly another one before life had other plans for the band. Originally released in 1991, is shrouded in mysterious melodies, echoing several thinking-man’s alternative bands of the era — R.E.M., Split Enz, Talk Talk — while very much remaining its own animal. It still sounds fresh and engaging two dozen years later, anyway, something a lot of bands at the time who lasted beyond their first album couldn’t even say. For Saturday’s “22 Year Reunion” show, Twenty Mondays plan to play most of Twist Inside and its never-completed followup, as well as a second set of covers from the likes of Duran Duran, Talk Talk, and more. With Lee Alexander.
