Liz Phair to Play Mercy Lounge Jan. 30

Posted By on Mon, Dec 6, 2010 at 4:40 PM

Over the July 4 weekend, Liz Phair threw us all for a loop by posting the, uh, rap single "Bollywood," on her website — a song on which she, Liz Phair, raps. Minds were blown all over the Internet. A little bit of the indie rocker inside all of us died.

Then came one of the year's most universally derided albums — that'd be Funstyle, which she unleashed online after getting dropped from Dave Matthews' ATO label.

And then, we forgot about all that. At an October show in Vancouver, Phair didn't play "Bollywood." She played "Fuck and Run," and closed with "Flower," and made her fans — oh those long-suffering fans — happy paid customers of the Cult of Liz Phair Which Was Not Completely Destroyed by Funstyle. Will we be so lucky? Phair plays Mercy Lounge Jan. 30, with what supporting act we do not know, so we shall see about that. I'm hopeful. Are you hopeful? Tickets go on sale this Friday, Dec. 10, right here.
