Mercury Lounge

Mercury Lounge

The roster may be filled with bands you've never heard of, but Mercury has, in recent years, become the sort of stepping stone that every up-and-coming band must pay their dues at—in short, don't be surprised if some no-name band you see here goes platinum before you know it. Big names that have played this stage include Interpol, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and the Strokes. The space isn't very big, but there's not a bad seat in the house and the sound system is pretty good.
