Has it really been seven years since that wacky crew of bra-hams down on Cannery Row first began staging shows? Our calendars and our swiftly deteriorating livers tell us yes, so we might as well celebrate. Between Saturday, Jan. 16, and Saturday, Jan. 23, Mercy Lounge and Cannery Ballroom will be hosting several local-talent-imbued blowouts, and every single one of them is free. It all kicks off with a who's who of local cover bands and concludes with a couple of marathon lineups -- not to mention some surprises in there as well.

Check out Steve's feature for a general run-down, or meet me after the jump and I'll tell you who's playing each night. It's gonna split your wig!
