Control Top Headline Mercury Lounge

In the midst of a seemingly never-ending tour for their incredible album, Covert Contracts, Philadelphia punk band Control Top had their first NYC headlining show this week at Mercury Lounge. The trio of powerhouse singer/bassist Ali Carter, bassist/engineer Al Creedon and drummer Alex Lichtenauer is a favorite of BTRtoday’s staff and we recently interviewed Lichtenauer about Get Better Records, which releases the band’s music and they help run.

Openers Carrion Spring and Soul Glo set the tone for the night before Control Top tore it all down. Edwina Hay was there to capture it all in photos.
