Music City Circus Benefit at the Mercy Lounge

Get in the Ring


We're not going to browbeat you here like a pledge-drive whipmaster. But this here show, being for the benefit of Mr. MEAC (Metropolitan Educational Access Corporation, the public-education-government programming folk) goes to support the kind of eclectic local TV fare we’d like to see all year. And what's more, it's also a tax write-off. Not doing it for you? Toss into that concert-going clown car a lineup that includes The Vespers (playing with a full backing band), Vinyl Thief, Justin Kalk Orchestra, Circle Syndicate, Run With Bulls, and Cheer Up, Charlie Daniels—that's local faves Cheer Up, Charlie Daniels, comma included, no “Uneasy Rider” or “Still in Saigon” here—and you've got the local equivalent of an episode of Bill Moyers’ Journal. A $5 minimum donation is requested.
