WHAT A WEEKEND!! INNUMERABLE FORMS/MAMMOTH GRINDER Tonight! COGNITIVE DISSONANCE Tomorrow! GHASTLY CITY SLEEP, GRAY GHOST also!!



I am so effing stoked for this weekend. Starting tonight with the un-fuckwithable INNUMERABLE FORMS show with Montreal hardcore punkers NAUGHTY GIRLS and Austin juggernaut MAMMOTH GRINDER!!! opening the show is LONGPIGS, who rip. Now I know there's some other death metal show tonight, but this one is the one to be at, hands down. No bald old fat dudes with bad breath sucking up the air. just pure, unadulterated brutality.



And as if that's not enough, Minneapolis metal-crusters COGNITIVE DISSONANCE crush the apocalytic wastes on Friday night, alongside DODWORTH, THE CREDENTIALS, and NEW CREASES. Plus, it's Chloe Puke's Birthday, so come party!


Saturday the 31st we celebrate the release of GHASTLY CITY SLEEP's new LP with a killer indie lineup featuring heart-wrenching songstress IVANA XL, Detroit indie-soul sensations THE SUMMER PLEDGE, and lo-fi fruit-wearer LOST BOY. And be careful, the block will be hosting a water-balloon bbq all day, so the likelihood of aquatic assault is real!



Finally, Sunday brings Atlanta post-hardcore monsters GRAY GHOST and their own sludgy, chaotic madness to our stage. Bandmates UNREAL CITY and New Jersey hardcore bruisers OMINOUS ORDER OF FILTHY MONGRELS fill out the bill. crushing riffs and maddening blasts are the order of the day.

THE BODY Invades Brooklyn Again!


Providence demonic duo of doom THE BODY will be gracing our fair borough again on July 22nd. Last time they came through brooklyn was last fall with fellow terrible twosome DARK CASTLE, who will be playing with our neighbors HULL this Friday at Webster Hall. This time it's a killer bill with some jerks called ATAKKE, BAD DREAM - The Acheron's official new favorite locals, and new radicals CURANDERA, featuring members of TOURNAMENT and MUTILATION RITES.  Wear light shoes, cause this is gonna be HEAVY!!!

INNUMERABLE FORMS will rip your face off!!



Ian Dickson knows what I like. When I told him about the ACHERON opening up, he said, "Let's do the INNUMERABLE FORMS show there. You'll like it. It's metal." Well that was the fuckin' understatement of the summer. INNUMBERABLE FORMS is Justin Detore of MIND ERASER and FUNEBRARUM doing a one-man tribute to classic old-school death metal. If your a fan of old nordic death like CARNAGE and NIHILIST, I don't know why you don't already have this record. The FORMS tear our place apart with Montreal hard-punkers NAUGHTY GIRLS on July 29th, and there may be a surprise in store for you as well. This is going to fucking rule.

HARDCORE WEEKEND!! MASAKARI Friday! COLOSSUS Saturday! FAILURES Sunday!! Get Stoked!

Hey Kids! This weekend we've got some great hardcore and metal for you! Start it off Friday with MASAKARI, Cleveland's Heavy D-Beat heroes! and if that wasn't enough, TERROR LEVEL RED is reuniting for this one show! don't miss it! DEATH FIRST and Jersey's ZHENIA GOLOV round out the bill. Promises to be a crust-acular time. Here's some video of MASAKARI rocking out in the Czech Republic:














Then the mayhem don't stop! North Carolina crushers COLOSSUS bring the NWOSHM stylings to the Acheron for the first time to shred your face off alongside Brooklyn skate-heshers TYRHOMBUS REX and DCBR.



And then get ready for serious Hardcore crazyness with the unfuckwitable Failures and Vaccine playing alongside Raw Nerves (from Portland - thats PLURAL not singular), and  Rats In The Walls in their final appearance.

Failures' S/T LP dropped last year on vocalist Mark McCoy's own Youth Attack imprint and currently have LP #2 in the works. The band features members of Das Oath, Orchid, Ampere, Cut the Shit, Charles Bronson, and many other outfits including McCoy's recent undertaking as guitarist, Veins.

I'll see you at the Acheron ALL WEEKEND LONG!!
