Hard Skin played Acheron w/ Murderess, Sad Boys & more (pics, review)

Hard Skin at Acheron, 8/13/2012
Hard Skin

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.”

You are the country that gave us the Dropkick Murphys. You have that on your conscience.”

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.
