I'm certain that ever since we at the Cream announced our monthlong 8 off 8th series at Mercy Lounge next month, you've been on pins and needles awaiting some lineups. Well the first one is here, and we just couldn't keep you waiting any longer. July 6 is '60s night, meaning all of the following artists will be playing some of their favorite songs from the greatest decade, y'know, pretty much ever:
Matt Friction and the Cheap Shots
Ole Mossy Face
I can tell you that some of the covers already spoken for--or at least put "on hold"--include songs by The Zombies, The Animals, The Velvet Underground & Nico, Tommy James & the Shondells, The Rolling Stones, Dion DiMucci and Roy Orbison. Also, I'm guessing there will be some Sonics in there, and I've heard whispers that Adam Gold may or may not engage in some light cross-dressing. Fingers crossed. There will be prizes, but I won't tell you what those prizes are going to be. Maybe that's because I'm secretive, and maybe it's because I actually have no idea what the prizes are going to be. And remember, all four shows are free.
