Catch the Spirit Tonight at Mercury Lounge

June 15th, 2012

Typically when thinking of Brooklyn bands, instruments like the banjo, fiddle, accordion and washboard aren’t what come to mind. But then, Spirit Family Reunion isn’t your typical Brooklyn band. The six-piece does a modern take on old-timey bluegrass-based music, and the group’s wildly entertaining, high-energy shows often become group sing-alongs that make you want to “stomp, clap, shake and holler.” And while bands just about always release their albums on Tuesdays, Spirit Family Reunion (above, doing “Leave Your Troubles at the Gate” for self-releases No Separation today. It’s Friday. So come cut loose, catch the Spirit and get your weekend started right at the late show tonight at Mercury Lounge.
