The Merc or Busk
Gravel-voiced street musician turned stage artist Jason Webley oozes a Tom Waits vibe, but don't tell him that. The busking accordionist is clearly his own creation, known for leading Andy Kaufman-style audience-participation parades (one Webley-led public takeover of a Seattle water fountain got him banned from Bumbershoot), using a coin-filled vodka bottle as a percussion instrument, driving a tomato-mobile, spontaneously erupting into song in supermarkets and staging his own death each Halloween, among other things.
The inimitable Webley performs his unilateral version of gypsy/punk/folk music with stories this evening at the Mercury Cafe, 2199 California Street. And don't, even for a minute, think you know what to expect. Just go and be there by 9 p.m. Tickets are $6; call 303-294-9281 or visit www.mercurycafe.com for details.
Thu., July 19, 9 p.m.
