Best place to show up for a sold-out show (2008)


A hipper-than-thou aesthetic generally goes with good rock clubs, but it's in short supply at MERCURY LOUNGE, especially for those turning up ticketless for a sold-out show. The door guy politely eyes you, puts you in the standby line in his mind, lets you wander away for a beer or a knish, remembers you when you return, and then kindly hooks you up with the next person arriving with that miracle ticket they can't use.
