Despite the downed trees, windswept and debris-covered side streets and train issues, Providence duo The Body managed to shake a few more nerves on 9/16 when the band played DIY Bushwick venue the Acheron with stonery locals Bad Dream and the hardcore inflected Philadelphians Deathbeds. The show, their second at the venue and second at the venue as part of a larger tour, trotted out material from their latest LP All The Waters Of The Earth Turn To Blood at ear-shattering volume for a short but jaw-dropping set.
Bad Dream do a fuzzed-out psychedelic stoner set headed up by a fantastic bass player that sets them apart from some of the bell-bottomed masses. Deathbeds provided a brutal hardcore assault with touches of driving punk ala Doomriders, Cave In, Mother of Mercy, and modern-Entombed.
More pictures from the show, as well as a killer live video of The Body in action, are below...
