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.
