Trash Talk at Acheron (photo by Marvic Paulo)
A hearty thanks to all who came to the Trash Talk/La Dispute/Cerebral Ballzy/Psychic Limb FREE all-ages rager at Acheron (the venue, not the band who just called it quits after 22 years) on Friday night after the Trash Talk / La Dispute show at Bowery. The new venue was absolutely shocking when I first checked it out. DIY spaces have a (rightful) reputation as cut to the bare minimum, but Acheron's sound and space was nothing like that. With a stage, a respectable PA, and plenty of space to fit 100+, it's nice to see that metal has a new and legitimately great place to play.
Moshpit dudes in fitted mouthpieces aside, the show was tons of fun and lived up to Trash Talk's other recent incredible performances I witnessed in Austin: at the our Pizza Party at Hoeks and at our Attitude Adjustment show at Red 7.
