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.

More pics and video from The Acheron last night are below.

Water line in the basement at Saint Vitus on Tuesday
Hurricane Sandy

Saint Vitus may have sustained some minor water damage to the basement, but the Greenpoint metal bar is open for business tonight (10/31) for a special Halloween event featuring Bottoms Up (a David Lee Roth era Van Halen tribute band). Entrance is free (or save your spot with a $1 ticket, on sale now), and the party starts at 9PM with complimentary booze (Red Bull and vodka) from 9 - 10 PM and continues until the time of "you-probably-should-be-in-bed".

The venue announced that Blackgates, which features Dan Nelson (ex-Anthrax) and Paul Bostaph (ex-Slayer), have cancelled their appearance on 11/3, but still no word on whether the rest of the bill will go on as planned or be scrapped entirely.

Meanwhile, The Acheron is proceeding with business as usual as well. The venue sustained no damage due to Sandy, and will host a show tonight featuring Author & Punisher with Panther Modern. DJ Derek Rush is also on board and $10 gets you into this 21+ show.

Moab is part of an elite society that knows that knows the difference between "classic" and "retro" and they abandon all notions of "old and tired" on their Kemado debut Ab Ovo which is out Tuesday (8/16). We premiered "So On" off of the power trio's new record last week, and now you can stream all 40 minutes of Ab Ovo below.

Moab celebrated the release of the record on July 29th in their native Los Angeles. The band, supported by The Fucking Wrath and Author & Punisher, was joined on stage by none other than doom legend Wino who helped them cover Pentragram (who head back out on tour soon!). Pictures from the LA show are, with the full album stream, below...
