The Merc is everything a live-music venue should be: unpretentious, affordable, and outfitted with a killer sound system. The rooms themselves are nothing special: a front bar and an intimate back-room performance space with a low stage and a few tables along the wall. The calendar is filled with a mix of accomplished local rockers and such national acts as Fat Possum, the Mekons, Sleepy Jackson, and the White Rabbits. The crowd is grown-up and easygoing. The only downside is that it's consistently packed thanks to the high-quality shows and all-around cool experience.
