Liar’s Rosebush @ Mercury Lounge

Who would have thought that people actually came out to the Mercury Lounge and danced wholeheartedly to dance music.
People would say it was a club night, others say a “rave” night.
I like to call it a hipster club rave night without all the excessive plastic toys and bright colors.
Well the place was 19+ so it was more a mature affair.

Last night I went to the Mercury Lounge to help support Liar’s Rosebush (aka Matt Rosen) CD Release show.
Liar’s Rosebush‘s new album is called “Thank-You Machines!”
Mostly it was great show because it was only $5 to get in.

Others that were playing were:
DJ Obsidian
Boyscout Killers (which I missed out after Rosebush ended)

When I got in, there was this art installation made of clear tape.

Looked very much like a spider-web which felt abit creepy, attached to it was laser lights.
Made it look very cool looking.
There was also a cool video show upstairs.
It was very trippy seeing that stuff on the screen.

I think the DJ was Obsidian, he kind of opened up the show.

His music had lots of fun beats with a beat of asian influenced sounds.

Hi-Comm was the only act that wasn’t really techno-y.
More of a rock band but they added pH who is a electronica artist into the mix.
It was a fun set, would have danced more but I would look like an idiot since all the people were just standing.
I didn’t know that someone I know was in this band.
Great start up to the night for Hi-Comm.

After them it was a solo set for pH.
It was a fun time for his set.
Like the “Speak and Spell” that was in his set.

Rosebush finally came on.

Like his equipment he had, whatever those square buttons suppose to do.

He had a mix of every genre like techno, trance, DnB, jungle and mashup.
My favorite was he did a remix of M.I.A.’s “Paper Planes”
I enjoyed it alot.

Overall I was surprised being on a Tuesday night that people did showed up in support for Rosebush’s CD Release party.
Considering Tuesday is sort of a bad night to do a show well unless you are Leonard Cohen and do a two night sold out show at the NAC.
Totally had a fun time and I should try and listen to Rosebush’s CD.
