Lower East Side venue Mercury Lounge opened on Houston between Ludlow and Essex in 1993 and has, over the years, hosted early shows from many artists who have gotten much bigger, including Arcade Fire, Arctic Monkeys, The Strokes, Broken Social Scene, Mumford & Sons and countless others. Mercury Lounge is celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2019 with special "25 Years of Mercury Lounge" shows.

Ambulance LTD, who haven't played in a long time, are getting back together to play two nights at Mercury Lounge on February 7 (early show, tickets) and February 8 (sold out). Vapors of Morphine, the group featuring original Morphine members Dana Colley and Jerome Dupree, will play the late show on 2/7, which is also a 25 Years of Mercury Lounge show (tickets). Both the 2/7 Ambulance LTD and Vapors of Morphine shows go on sale Friday, December 14 at noon with presales starting Tuesday (12/11) at 10 AM.

Other upcoming Mercury Lounge anniversary shows include: Groove Collective on 1/25 (tickets), Wheatus on 4/5 (tickets), and the Acid Mothers Temple show on 4/22 (tickets).

Visions of Morphine have a few other live dates, all in their hometown of Boston. Those are listed, along with a Vapors of Morphine live performance and two Ambulance LTD videos from their debut album, below.
