Afterbirth Monkey is a comedy band based out of Astoria. They derive everything they do from intoxication and magic. You should exercise caution when crossing the street for tacos at the taco truck while intoxicated because Afterbirth Monkey will be waiting there and you will probably want to do it with them while you wait for your order.
