Mercy and Grand and Jesus' Blood
The deconstruction of Whistle Down The Wind continues: this is the junction of Mercy Drive, a small-ish cul-de-sac, which you can see heading off to the right there, and Rte 31. "Mercy" as a thoroughfare name isn't all that common in the US, and as this is in McHenry, it's almost certainly the place, on some level.
And Mercy and Grand was also the title of a show involving covers of 12 Tom Waits songs, which appears to have toured provincial venues in 2007. Gavin Bryars was on bass.
