On Monday night, the SOTC triumverate had the unique pleasure of eating hor d'oeuvres and standing awkwardly beside sardonic anti-hero songwriter Stephin Merritt during the cocktail hour of our paper's 55th Annual Off-Broadway Awards. Later that night, Stephin Merritt took the Webster Hall stage to accept an OBIE for his musical contributions to the David Greenspan project Coraline. "I guess I'm going to go home and put this on my mantel," Merritt said when accepting his Obie. "Do people here have mantels?"

Nope, just indie-TMZ-style photos of you from the night.
