Mr. Drew Mischke does quite a lot for local rock 'n' roll--whether it's booking great shows, getting promising local acts on bills with touring bands or pouring me a shot at 1 a.m., the guy's a consummate pro. So it's only fitting that the Mercy Lounge will be celebrating Mischke's birthday yacht-rock-cover-style. That's right, we're talking Hall and Oates, Kenny Loggins, Steely Dan, Michael McDonald. Who knows? Maybe even some Huey Lewis. (He's borderline y.r., right?)
Anyhow, the show will feature covers from The Pink Spiders, The Tits, KinderCastle and more. Jensen Sportag and And the Relatives will no longer be performing, but I have it on good authority that they'll be there drinkin', goofin' and singin' along to some of the 20th century's most shamefully white, feel-good soft rock. Don't forget to wear your dancing loafers.
