Scissor Sisters @ Mercury Lounge

Scissor Sisters played a secret show under the name Bridget Jones' Diarrhea at Mercury Lounge in NYC last night (July 13th, 2005). It was the first of a three week secret residency at the same club (next week = "Megapussi" & the final show = "Portion Control"). Eleven days earlier Scissor Sisters performed for millions at the London Live 8 show. Their last NYC show was a sold out performance at (the 3000 person capacity?) Hammerstein Ballroom. Mercury Lounge holds 200-250 people.

The band's desire to test out new Scissor Sisters songs was the reason for the small secret show. I think we heard seven new tunes total (give or take a new song). The new stuff was great, but hearing Laura, Mary, Tits on the Radio, Filthy/Gorgeous, and Comfortably Numb was even greater. DJ Sammy Jo opened the show with an hour DJ set before SS took the stage.

Definitely was an awesome show last nite...So even though Sammy Jo is a give-away that the 7/27 one is linked to Scissor Sis, there's no chance that it's NOT the actual band called Portion Control instead? Just cause being able to see Clap Your Hands PLUS Scissor Sisters together is a big bonus that almost makes me second guess...but I'm not complaining!

The Scissor Sisters show on the 27th with Maxi Geil and Clap Your Hands Say Yeah is going to be totally insane.

How do you get invited to so many secret shows? Anyway, you got tons of pictures. You must have been really close.

Wow, btw take a look - some positive interesting stuff , see you later. In 2010, Manjula Martin and her partner set out to see the world the old-fashioned way: by bicycle. With little money, no itinerary, gadgets or training, they traversed five countries and 3,500 miles and discovered a world filled with generosity. In this article, Manjula Martin describes the transition from bike to home with four rules for re-entry that are strikingly authentic, grounded, and universal.
