Free show with The Maine and our good friends Mercury In Summer. This is a family show so everyone is welcome to come! It's gonna be a really fun day with live music, food vendors, face painting, moon bounces, etc. Hope to see you there!
Mercury in Summer is a three piece rock band from the D.C. area. Their music speaks for itself; high energy, catchy songs with a musical flair that at times recalls the grooves of Michael Jackson, the vocal harmonies of the Four Freshmen, and the instrumental fluidity of Return to Forever. "Wait, those aren't rock bands!" you might say; and yes you're correct. But Mercury in Summer is. Tip-toeing the line between familiar and strange, fans say that Mercury in Summer seems to effortlessly incorporate other genres into their style. And you'll be saying the same thing, especially after seeing them live. Richard Wynne (Lead Vocals, Guitar), Brendan McCusker (Drums, Vocals), and Brian Jones (Bass, Vocals) don't get up on stage to "play the record" - no, they put on a show. One filled with riveting improvisation, a non-stop arsenal of killer songs, and arrangement embellishments to keep the audience out of their seats and on their feet. After seeing their show, you may end up asking yourself when the last time was that you saw a band that wasn't only "as good" as their CD, but even better in concert; like Mercury in Summer. Their highly anticipated release "I Believe" has been a huge success, recorded by famed engineer/producer Dave Way (Michael Jackson, Christina Aguilera, Foo Fighters, Paul McCartney), and sagaciously guided by executive producer John Molo (Bruce Hornsby and the Range, Phil Lesh and Friends, John Fogerty). Yes, things have been going pretty well for Mercury in Summer lately; considering their recent airplay on DC101 and 98 rock, trips around the U.S. to play festivals exceeding 17,000 attendees (Gathering of the Vibes), and a surge of interviews from college radio and newspapers a like. Fans and listeners a like agree, this band has it. But the one thing everybody is wondering is "What's next for Mercury in Summer?" http://mercuryinsummer.com/ Static Cinema is the best you've never heard!

Saturday October 30, 2010 from 7:00pm - 8:30pm STATES (featuring Mindy White of Lydia & members of Copeland) Dear Friends, There are those rare moments in life where things work out just the way you want them to. For us, States is exactly that. In the wake of moving on from our amazing pasts (both Copeland and Lydia), we were blessed by perfect timing. What you hear now is the product of us experimenting and recording demos at home. Our goal is to get our songs out there as soon as possible, and to be heading into the studio soon after. This is our future, and we are so excited for you guys to be here at the start of it. We will be writing, recording, playing, and sharing our progress with you all. We hope that you become a part of this new chapter in our lives, and we can't wait to see you all soon. http://www.myspace.com/states http://www.myspace.com/mercuryinsummer
