i'd never been to the actual lounge portion of said Mercy Lounge, only the Ballroom. it was fine. crowded from the sold out show, but a nice place. i dont necessarily recommend standing in front of the 48" woofers up front, but they provide a nice breeze.
i gotta tell you. i did not enjoy the Black Angels. i was very disappointed with what they produced with 6 bands members. it was a lot of noise, few chords changes, and too many guitar solos. especially compared to what the Black Keys did with merely 2 people. i just couldn't get behind that.
the Black Keys had a sweet light show going on, which i was thoroughly impressed by. i guess there's a reason it cost $20 (over the normal $10 shows i go to). not to mention they sounded incredible
(i don't even know what this was. it makes a great background though.)
this was funny. can you find todd? HINT: he's the only one without his hands in the air. huh. i joke, but i'm the same way.
i put up a couple other videos too. all of todd's are better because he was pretty much on stage, but... this isn't todd's blog.
