Today, Mungion has announced their plans for New Year’s Eve 2018. To ring in 2019, the up-and-coming jam band will host a hometown throwdown at Martyrs’ in Chicago on December 31st. For this highly anticipated performance, Mungion is scheduled to play three high-energy sets.As Mungion’s Justin Reckamp shared,The band is really excited to announce our NYE show in Chicago this year. We’ve been looking forward to playing a proper show in our home city for a long time now. This past year we’ve played a lot of support dates for national touring acts, which is great, but having a show all to ourselves gives us an opportunity to really take liberties in the live setting. We have the entire night to try out some new material and really put ourselves in a position to have a shared experience with the audience. As far as what’s planned, we’ve been floating a couple ideas around… That’s all I can really say right now but you definitely won’t leave disappointed. Get your tickets and bring the crew!Tickets for Mungion’s upcoming New Year’s Eve show go on sale Thursday, October 11th, at 10 a.m. here. For more information, head to Mungion’s website.
MASON CITY — A Lake Mills man accused of sexual abuse in Cerro Gordo County has pleaded not guilty. 20-year-old Benjamin Monson is accused of committing sexual abuse in Mason City twice, on October 31st and November 15th of last year. Court documents state the incidents happened at two different locations, with one of the female victims being unconscious and physically helpless at the time, with the other being forced against her will. Monson recently pleaded not guilty to two counts of third-degree sexual abuse. His trial is scheduled to start on January 14th. If convicted of both charges, he’d face up to 20 years in prison. Monson continues to be held in the Cerro Gordo County Jail on $20,000 bond.
