EASY ACTION TONIGHT with THE MEN and PREGNANT! LAST COMIC STANDING top 5 finalist MYQ KAPLAN tomorrow for REBELS WITHOUT APPLAUSE!

A great week ahead of us here at the Acheron! Tonight we're excited to announce that Detroit rock n' roll juggernaut EASY ACTION grace our stage. Their brand of dirty, angry, sleaze-rock stands on its own, but it sure doesn't hurt that the inimitable John Brannan of NEGATIVE APPROACH does his duty as frontman. The killer lineup includes Brooklyn fuzz punkers THE MEN and the hard working PREGNANT. This should be a full night so get there early!

And for all of you that want the flyer - download the pdf HERE

And tomorrow REBELS WITHOUT APPLAUSE triumphantly returns with Last Comic Standing Top Five finalist MYQ KAPLAN. His amazingly quick wit and wordsmithery will leave your head spinning... or maybe that'll be the beer. Anyways, Check out his recent set on Craig Ferguson:





But wait! there's more reason to come than just Mr. Myq, we've also got the hilarious Jena Friedman, who's appeared at the Glasgow International Comedy Festival as well as the Laughing Skull festival in Atlanta.

It's been too long...

...since I've had a chance to update the blog, so let's get back down to business! Due to some unfortunate circumstances, This Saturday's double header is cancelled. But fear not! We've got a hell of a lineup this week starting with Sunday.

Listen Listen from Houston play haunting, lonely, memorial hymns baked by the Texas sun and aged by the dust of the plains. Their last LP, "Hymns from Rhodesia" made the top lists of 2009 by everyone from bloggers to Rolling Stone. Their new album, "The Dog" delivers more acheful country / folk tinged with gospel and even some experimentation into more modern sounds. Joining them this Sunday are Chicago's Conductive Alliance, who's recent EP "Water Glyphs" has received critical acclaim over the last year; and Brooklyn indie faves Bad Credit No Credit and Binary Marketing Show.

Copenhagen's HJERTESTOP were here a couple years ago, and tore the charleston apart. This year we're lucky enough to have them at the Acheron, sharing the stage with Brooklyn rippers NIGHT BIRDS and CERVIX, who just opened for AGE and HELLSHOCK at the Knitting Factory Saturday night. This one should really not be missed!
