Frog Eyes @ Mercury Lounge

Carey Mercer (aka Frog Eyes frontman) is a maniac, and I mean that as a compliment. Monday night I only stayed for the first half of Frog Eyes’ set after Sunset Rubdown. Last night (May 24, 2006) I left right after Sunset Rubdown, but came back to watch the second half of Frog Eyes. And the second half must be where its at because I couldn’t take my eyes off Mercer as he frantically spewed undecipherable genius into the microphone that had me both scared and elated all at once.

NOTE 1: Spencer Krug (Sunset Rubdown, Wolf Parade) played keyboards in Frog Eyes (his old band).

NOTE 2: Frog Eyes’ classic albums were recently reissued.

NOTE 3: This was actually the third time I saw Frog Eyes. I remember liking him/them before, but don’t remember anything that compared to the magical way he/they closed the set last night.
