Hard Skin at Acheron, 8/13/2012
One part hilarious comedy act and one part damn good oi band, Hard Skin played Acheron to a sold-out house last night (8/13) as part of a short string of dates surrounding their tour around This is Hardcore. Hard Skin was joined by appearances from the fantastic metallic d-beat crew Murderess, NYC punks Sad Boys, Family Fun and Coffin Fit. Pictures from the show are below.
Hard Skin spent half of their set playing uber-catchy Oi and the other half making fun of the crowd, but it was all in the name of a good time. Fat Bob, who you may recognize from the Record Store Dude series (and who is also reportedly an A&R man at Rough Trade), quipped:
"We've come to take your shit American dollars. We've done that so you can all leave."
"Hello New York, the place so shit you had to name it twice."
After a short set (30+ minutes?), the band announced their last song to the grumble of the crowd. Fat Bob responded:
"Shut the fuck up. You pay peanuts, and you get monkeys."
Fat Bob, I disagree.
If you missed Murderess, make sure to get out to Acheron on August 20 where they'll team with Trenchgrinder and Death First to put a cap on their East Coast tour. Dates are below, along with a stream of one track, "For What?" Probably the biggest surprise of the evening and a fantastic live band.
Pictures from last night's Acheron show, that Murderess stream and all Murderess dates are listed below.
