Showing No Mercier

"Show yourself, pussy"
-Brett and Dave, to heckler

For the first time in about 5 years, I was not present for a GM set (attended a wedding). While I was able to make it over for Set 2, I definitely left with a case of blue balls.  While the band was ripping through my personal favorites "Enemy" and "Cold Roses", I was stuck at the singles table watching bridesmaids perform the "Cha-Cha Slide".  Luckily, Melissa and the Merc Dog were able to pinch hit, giving me up-to-the-minute setlist updates and photos. By the time I walked in, people seemed to be having a blast:
