GiG SpAm: chancer at Mercury Lounge 1.5.05


getz out

Recommended Posts

I hope all is going well; just a friendly, neighborhood gig-spam here.

 

We were just asked by the fine folks at Mercury Lounge to fill-in a Wednesday night slot. The interesting part is that our second guitarist is flying home from India the same day, so we are not sure if he's going to make the show. That means (if he is delayed) I might overplay like crazy, sing a lot of backing vocals, and keep the overdrive engaged for the majority of the show. I think that would be entertaining.

 

What? chancer plays original rock and roll (check out chancermusic.com )

 

When? 7:30 PM, Wednesday, January 5, 2005

 

Where? Mercury Lounge, 217 E. Houston St., New York, NY | (212) 260-4700 | mercuryloungenyc.com

 

Why? Celebrate the New Year with some Yuppie Rock. $8 cover.

 

Let me know if any of you cats on the forum can make it out so we can grab a beer or such before or after the show.

Erik, look forward to seeing you if you can make it.

 

Jason, sorry man; 6 months, right? It's worth the wait. Back in the day, I would agree with Matt, but lately they've been hardcore about getting cops involved with fake ID's... sucks. ;)

 

Nick, 7:30pm most likely means 8pm. Mercury is pretty hard core about schedules, though.

 

Wade, Chicago is a definitely possibility; our guitarist (the one who is currently in India and scheduled to land Wednesday afternoon at Newark Airport) has some drawn in Chicago. We also have ties with a local band out there. This summer the list is starting to look like Boston, Wash DC, Chicago, Pittsburg, and possibly London.

 

Thanks all!

I might make this one, Maury. Even if your band stinks. Haha just kidding. I checked out the site and you guys definately are the real deal. And yes what I just said is a far cry from something else I said not long ago... ;)

 

I enjoy watching 3 piece bands play. So this should be real exciting.

 

Should I dress swanky and suave or lowdown and casual?

JWH - the east village requires jeans or a salvation army suit. ;)

 

73p - you the man, C. I'm going to work on that for the "Boston" leg of the tour.

 

William - that explains a lot; lack of initial judgment of character was your "in", eh? ;)

 

Look forward to seeing the folks that can make it out!

Bump o' luv.

 

I will try to attend this event. Have yet to get a firm negative or positive from my wife -- maybe she's more suspicious about Maury than I first thought...

 

If I arrive early and bring the Fish o' Luv, do I get to participate in soundcheck? If so, which of Maury Spades' rigs would I get to use?

 

Peace.

Fanboy? Why, yes! Nordstrand Pickups and Guitars.

Willie,

 

The rig is going to be the Bergantino HT112/EX112 combination powered by either the Eden WT-330 or the Kern IP-777->Peavey DPC 1400X. It'll be a gametime decision. :D

 

We may not sound-check since we're probably going to get there after work.

 

Thanks for the bump; hope you can make it out!

OK - Willie and I were chatting. Since this lame-o band isn't going on until 7-freakin-30 and most of us get out of work earlier than that, we're going to make a dinner stop.

 

I'm fixin for around 6. Willie will post the location (but somewhere near the gig).

 

So we're combining two things. This has officially become the "Chancy Food" outing. :P
