George Hirsch of Blacklisted, belting it out
We ventured out to the Jefferson stop on the L train and after a few wrong turns we made it to the [Blacklisted/Mother of Mercy] show... It was a pretty awesome space, two levels, with the entire middle section of the floor on the second level cut away so you can see everything that was going on downstairs.
The band set up so that the pit was directly below the hole in the upper floor, everyone present on the second floor had a perfect birds-eye view of what was going on downstairs without having to worry about getting hit in the face by flailing arms and legs. The hole in the floor also allowed the more brave souls in the crowd to perform a psychotic stage dive from the second floor down into the pit below. -[livefastpartyhard]
After laying down a primer for the mass hysteria that was HopeCon at Cake Shop, Blacklisted and Mother of Mercy shot on over to 538 Johnson in Brooklyn to play a surprise late show in the loft space. Pics from that show adorn this post.
If you missed Blacklisted both times this weekend, no worries. The Philadelphia band will be back in NYC on 3/8 at Cake Shop when the band teams up with Gods & Queens, Tiger Flowers, and Chambers as part of a BrooklynVegan/1000 Knives production.
