[VIDEO] Mermaids – Make Believe (live at Star Bar 2/11/11)

The quality isn’t the greatest, but I thought there might be some interest in seeing the new lineup in action.  Honestly, it doesn’t seem like they’ve totally figured out the transition from a 5 piece to a 4 piece yet.  Josh Hughes’ guitar is definitely missed, and so are the vocal harmonies.  That much-discussed Creative Loafing feature indicates they’re working on new material, though, so that’s a good thing – I think it’s fair to assume they will sound more comfortable playing songs written for four people than they do playing songs written for five.

I’m glad they didn’t decide to disband after the lineup changes.  They’re one of my favorite bands in town, and it would have been a shame to see them call it quits after really hitting their stride last year.  Hopefully the new lineup will give them some stability.  I’m definitely pulling for them.
