The Mercy Lounges Rock N Roll Team Trivia is backand not a moment too soon, cause we were starting to get the shakes. It might seem a bit redundant to say that music critics fiend for the thrill of competitive nerdiness but, yeah, OK, we confess that trivia is indeed the highlight of our sad, geeky lives. The lure of free booze in exchange for musical knowledge ($100 for first place, $50 for second and $20 for third) is undeniable, but dont get frightened by our enthusiasm: the questions cover more popular music than youd think, and even the Scenes obsessive crew of music bloggers gets stumped more often than wed like to admit. Seriously, if we get beat on another question about The Beatles or David Bowie, were going to tender our resignation from the interwebs.
