O to the M to the F to the G!
After a decade of lowering the local journalism bar—and single handedly ruining the print industry—the Mercury is throwing a wee 'lil party for our tenth anniversary. On Saturday June 5, we'll be hijacking Rotture for an evening of indoor/outdoor excitement, all of which will be totally free and open to the public. We'll be plugging the event—from the food carts on location to the rumors of bucking mechanical bull—in the coming month, but I couldn't hold off any longer when it comes to the music.
Outside of Rotture, from 7-10 pm, we'll be throwing down an all-age dance party with the likes of DJ Linoleum, DJ Copy, and DJ Dundiggy. Then at 10 pm, we'll bring the good times inside for a 21-plus show with the party kings in the Mean Jeans, the world's most fascinating emcee Astronautalis (our token non-local act), and then a headlining set from the incredible Explode into Colors. Plus, vegan beatboxing extraordinaire Fogatron will host the festivities. Woah!
Best night of your life? Why, yes it is.
