Author & Punisher @ Acheron, 3/24/2013
Author & Punisher

Eclecticism is always an admirable virtue on a live bill, and such was on full display at The Acheron last night (3/24). The Bushwick venue played host to groove-oriented hardcore team A Life Once Lost (sounding more groove than hardcore nowadays) along with industrial one man crew Author & Punisher, and riveting cellist Helen Money.

Though each set had its merits, the most fascinating performance of the evening was definitely Author & Punisher. The one-man industrial doom/drone outfit, who wears its Godflesh influence proudly, fashioned machined-equipment as sample/synth triggers, creating a live show that is industrial stylistically and aesthetically. Giant knobs, sliders and clamps abound on his fascinating rig, which blasted out additional industro-doom thanks to the secondary PA carted in for the performance.

Not much in the way of crowd shots. I see two people on the side of the stage by the bar. How many people were there?

You guys should have covered the Incendiary show at Acheron on Saturday. That was the one that needs to be documented. Packed out and it got nuts.

I saw ALOL in Denver (shout out to Garage Land if anyone actually reads this) the guitar player had broken his foot skateboarding and was sitting in a chair. while they were setting up a my buddy and me (haha) started talking with the dude, he asked if we had any weed, which we did, then he asked if he had any speed..... awesome band, they fucking killed it that night.

Look at this dweeb sausages MIDI controller. You know they sell MIDI keyboards for your boring kidult industrial laptop "music" at Musician's Friend, right? LOL, anything to distract from the fact that you're really mostly just hitting the space bar, amirite?
