The Blue Moose, 211 Iowa Ave., is set to host local rock band Mad Monks along with special guest the Oculus at 9 p.m. today. Admission to the 21 and up show is $6.

The Iowa City group has recently released a self-titled album. Taking influence from bands and artists such as Jimi Hendrix, Muddy Waters, and Alice and Chains, the Mad Monk members describe their sound as a combination of “psychedelic progressive blues rock.”

The unsigned group has a true-grit approach to the blues and isn’t afraid of pushing the envelope, incorporating a neo-feel to the classic American genre.
