A Few Good Shows: 1/11/13
January 11, 2013
A few good shows? More like a shit-ton of good shows this weekend. Most of which are at the Mercy Lounge/Cannery/High Watt complex. 10 years ago Mercy Lounge opened its doors and quickly became one of the best venues in town in the 300-person capacity range. Soon after, the larger Cannery Ballroom opened, and just last year the brand new High Watt stage opened. They’ve celebrated their birthday every year in style, but this year they’re making it quite a party, with several great local bands on each stage and sponsorships by Yuengling and Brooklyn Brewery. Each night, the first 250 people will get in free, and the cover becomes $10 after that. Two-night passes can be purchased for $15 through the Mercy Lounge website. Listings for each night, along with some other picks are below. Happy 10 years Mercy Lounge!
