Mercury Social Club, a new venture from the former proprietors of Saving Gigi has the potential to be another asset in the emerging cultural district on Geary Av. if it can be rescued from what sounds like an ongoing bureaucratic quagmire. In the meantime, it's being used as an occasional special event space, and in its current semi-refinished state, it feels something like hanging around in a reclaimed rec hall. A fairly wide space, there's a likeable amount of elbow room with a rough-hewn make-do charm. The sound's a little rough still at this point, and the room got hot like a sauna as the crowd built up, but I'm hoping there'll be a chance for this to become a regularly-functioning space.

Having dug this Grand Rapids garage-punk trio in some backyard action not too long ago, I was looking forward to more of their psychotic reactions and Nuggets-y blasts. Leading off the evening, they brought a lot of energy to a room that felt far fuller and sweatier than it was when they started.

* Does anyone know the titles to these ones? Please leave a comment!
