Electronic music pioneer Gary Numan will play at Mercy Lounge on Monday, March 17, as part of his 2014 Splinter Tour. Big Black Delta and Roman Remains will open the show starting at 8 p.m.
As we saw at Mountain Oasis this past October, Gary Numan is very much still in the game. Though the British musician, composer, and producer reached his peak of mainstream popularity in the late 70s and early 80s with hits “Cars” and “Are ‘Friends’ Electric?”, Numan has taken his sound to a much darker, industrial place. Now, over 30 years, upwards of 20 albums later, and having influenced acts such as NIN and Marilyn Manson, Numan lands at his strongest release in years, Splinter (Songs From a Broken Mind).
This happened to be one of our favorite surprise moments at Mountain Oasis, and he was performing for an arena audience. So we’re pretty excited to see how his atmosphere will engulf the loft space at Mercy Lounge. This is not one to miss. Tickets are $22.50 (ADV), and go on sale this Friday, December 20 at 10 a.m. You can also purchase them in person at Grimey’s, The Groove, Fond Object, and Parlour & Juke. Doors are at 7 p.m., show at 8 p.m., 18+.
