This is an mp3 blog attempting to document the gross amount of music I listen to. About once a day, I'll post something I like. If you're a copyright holder on anything I host, get in touch, and we'll settle things in a steel cage instead of a courtroom.

The Have Mercys - or - let he who is without groove cast the first Pebbles

I apologize for the badness of the above joke. This is the first entry I've written sober in a while, and it was the best I could come up with.

Anyway, if you're from the DC area, you should be checking concert schedules to see when the Have Mercys will be playing. I saw these cats when they were opening up for the Hall Monitors at the Velvet Lounge two weeks ago, and the only reason I waited to write about 'em was because I wanted to get a posting closer to the date of their next show. They're opening up for the Ambitions on Tuesday at the Black Cat, so get your asses in gear, kiddos. For $6, how could you go wrong. I'll be there, so be sure to come by and say hi.

Anyway, when I saw them at the Velvet Lounge, they came onstage in Andy Warhol wigs and sunglasses (see the picture) and declared "ahhh, we ah zo German" in their best impression of Dieter from Schprockets. Equal parts Stooges groove, Pebbles pop, and Rumbleseat atmospherics, they slayed, even with jackasses like me yelling "mach schnell mit der Wienerschnitzel!" and offers of mustache rides between half the songs.

Check out their demo and come get drunk with me Tuesday.
