Archers of Loaf

Archers of Loaf teamed up with fellow reunited ’90s Chapel Hill band/Merge labelmates Pipe for a NYC show at Bowery Ballroom on 4/26 with Hundred Visions. The show was one of two in NYC for Archers of Loaf, who also played MHOW on 4/29 with Titus Andronicus and Sun Ladders. Archers of Loaf played a solid mix of material off all four of their full lengths and reached into other parts of their back catalog as well. Here’s what My Old Kentucky Blog had to say about the show:

A strong performance of “You and Me” built momentum into a one-two punch from 1996 release All the Nation’s Airports, “Distance Comes in Droves” and “Scenic Pastures,” which launched a sing-along that pretty much continued for the rest of the show. The vibe reached a fever pitch for “Audiowhore,” which gave way to the happiest moshers I’ve seen. No rudeness, just a group of fans hyped up and grateful to bask in the raw, lively goodness the Archers are known for.

Their songs sounded just as fresh today as when they were released in the 1990s. Archers of Loaf are very much in good form, proving good rock doesn’t have an expiration date.
