Theee Bat @ Mercury Lounge
Garage rock enthusiasts had a lot to keep them busy this weekend. Not only did Norton Records celebrate at the Bell House for four nights in a row, with related shows at Maxwell's, Japanese bands The 18.104.22.168s and Theee Bat got together with The Back C.C.'s (aka The Baxx Sisis) for a wild party at Mercury Lounge on Saturday. Here are some pics from that show.
Coincidentally (if you want to call it that) funk band "Here Come the Mummies" played Gramercy Theater in NYC, Manhattan even, that same night. I call it a coincidence because every time I think about "Here Come the Mummies", I think about the original The Mummies who you may remember reunited to play some shows in 2009 including one at Southpaw with The Back C.C.'s who played the Mercury Lounge show with Theee Bat who covered The Mummies and who did so for an EXTREMELY limited 7".
The 22.214.171.124s also played the Bell House on Thursday. More pictures from Saturday below...
