ZERO. "SOLD OUT" means exactly that: When a show sells out here, that means we have no additional tickets whatsoever and will not be releasing any.
When I tried to purchase tickets online, it said TICKETS NO LONGER AVAILABLE THROUGH TICKETWEB. Does this mean the show is sold out?
Not necessarily. We make every effort to indicate on our website that a show is sold out, if that is the case. In most scenarios, the event listing will be prefaced with "SOLD OUT" before the name of the performers and the purchase ticket link will be removed.
"No tickets available through Ticketweb" on the day of the show means just that: tickets are no longer available online for pre-order; they are now only available at the door.
Yes, you must show a VALID, GOVERNMENT-ISSUED PHOTO ID to enter.
That depends. We offer a full bar in both Mercy and Cannery with an ample selection of beer, wine and spirits. The prices of our beverages generally start at $3 and go up from there.
No. We do not have a box office on the premises. You can purchase tickets through our website, mercylounge.com. Tickets for many of ours shows are usually available at Grimey's Records, The Groove Record Shop and Parlour & Juke Salon, as well.
Tickets are available for pick up after doors open for the show, typically one hour before the listed show time.
You can contact our booking agents via email. All pertinent contact info is located on our Contact page. Electronic Press Kits are welcome, but please keep in mind that we receive many, many requests for booking on a daily basis. If your band is appropriate for Mercy Lounge, rest assured that we will get back in touch with you.
The Mercy Lounge does not book the talent for this night. We have a group of hosts that put together the bills. If you would like to play 8 off 8th, we recommend one simple thing: come to 8th off 8th. Check out some great bands, talk to interesting people, network, have fun, and make some new friends. 8 off 8th is a community-based event, and participation is reserved for those who attend shows and support the local music scene.
No, we do not currently have an open mic night. We recommend getting in contact with 8 off 8th to find an appropriate bill to show off your talent (see above).
We do offer a limited amount of seating throughout both Mercy Lounge and Cannery Ballroom, with a variety of tables, booths, and bar seating for your convenience. For most concerts in the Cannery Ballroom, there is no seating of any kind in the main performance area. There is, however, some seating available in an adjacent area.
All seating is strictly on a first-come, first-served basis.
In compliance with Tennessee State Law, we can not allow smoking inside the building. We do, however, offer a wonderful outdoor smoking patio that we encourage you to try out for all your smoking needs.
My friend purchased tickets to a show, but will not be there to pick them up. Can I pick them up instead?
We do not handle ticket sales directly; they are handled through Ticketweb.com. The person who purchased the tickets will need to log into their Ticketweb account and click on "Change Pick-Up Name". They can then enter in the information of the person who will be picking up the tickets. NOTE: ONLY THE PERSON WHO PURCHASED THE TICKETS CAN DO THIS.
We do not hold credit cards at the Mercy Lounge. For those wishing to start a tab, we will swipe your credit card and immediately return it to you. In the event that you somehow misplaced your card, we will do our best to keep it in a safe location for you.
You can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire about our lost and found items.
All credit card tabs left open at the end of the night are subject to a 20% gratuity.
I'm 17 years old and want to attend an 18+ or 21+ show there. Can I come if I'm accompanied by a parent?
Unfortunately, no. Mercy Lounge and Cannery Ballroom age policies are very strict. Because both venues are "bar settings" during events with age restrictions, we can not allow minors to attend, regardless of parental accompaniment. We are unable to negotiate on this point.
There is no charge to park in the lot directly in front of the Mercy Lounge. The adjoining lot is owned by Cummins Station and operated by Republic Parking. Republic\'s attendants will direct you to the nearest available spaces in their lots. Republic Parking charges a $5 fee to park in any of the lots owned by Cummins Station. The earlier you arrive, the more likely you are to be able to park in the least expensive lots.
Our camera policy varies from show to show, depending on the wishes of the performing artist and their management. In the event that you bring a camera to a show that does not allow the use of recording devices, you will be given every opportunity to return your camera to your car to store it.
