“…Hey, hey Reggie’s what do you say…” Holding Mercury

Hey, Fearless fans, SouthSide’s now rockin’ on her home turf at Reggie’s Rock Club! Though missing the earlier sets by The Moves and Early April, this reviewer arrived just in time to see Makeshift Prodigy and Holding Mercury. Once again, she was dazzled by the sights and sounds of Makeshift Prodigy. However she still preferred their Metro performance over this one. It isn’t that the band lacked the energy and fire exhibited two weeks ago. The smaller staging did hamper a little of the vibe felt from the band. Yet that didn’t stop many of their fans from enjoying another thrill ride with this band. They were screaming for more when their set came to a close. SouthSide highly encourages everyone to catch this Makeshift fever sweeping over the local music scene. She predicts bigger and better things will be happening for them in 2009! Fans can catch their next performance at Enclave for the Make-A-Wish Foundation event. For more information about Makeshift Prodigy and music, visit them or

Excitement was in the air when this band closed out the fantastic lineup at Reggie’s. Holding Mercury celebrated the release of their latest EP, Downfall of an Empire, by rockin’ out the crowd. After opening with Let It Go, SouthSide noticed something quite different about the band since the last time she saw them. Comparing them from 2008 to now, there was definitely more energy and vibrant feel in their music. Each song performed made you want to dance to the beat. For example, their most rockin’ song, Cancerous, truly had this audience grooving to the thrilling music. SouthSide enjoyed the wild guitar riffs and rhythms that pumped the venue with lots of sound. The drum solo during Standing Eight had them cheering and wanting more of Holding Mercury. Even the encore performed wasn’t enough to satisfy this audience. They still wanted more. Overall, this band performed a headlining set their fans will never forget. This reviewer recommends Fearless fans checking out this band as well as picking up their EP, Downfall of an Empire.

Until next time, Fearless fans, support local indie artists and music.
