By the time you read this, Mercy Lounges Winter of Dreamz concert series will be nearly wrapped up, so its anyones guess if your dreamz, were you so bold as to articulate them, materialized or crashed and burned. Celebrate or grieve at the series big finish, where members of Holly House (a local music collective) will merge and recombine members and material with the sort of dizzying ease only possible between people whove slurped beers at each others shows for years. Our guess is that Eureka Golds airiness will temper the clatter of Shoot the Mountain, while The Garland Sisters crooning will sweeten up And the Relatives. We dont even want to think about what The Tits will do to The Glibwere just afraid we wont be able to look away. The bands are breaking out the Christmas covers and providing hors doeuvres, which means those $2.50 pints of Sweetwater will come in extra handy. Formal wear or Christmas sweaters are highly encouraged, and if you cant swing the $3 cover, bring a canned good for charity. If all that earnest Christmas cheer doesnt warm the cockles of your hard, cynical local-rock heart, take it up with Santa, whos supposed to drop by.
