Black Tusk at the Studio at Webster Hall, in May (more by Keith Marlowe)
East Williamsburg's metal and hardcore venue of record, the Acheron, is heading down to Mexico to host a two day festival, the first annual Acheron D-Fest on February 14 and 15 at Club Bombay in Mexico City. The festival will feature thrashers Toxic Holocaust and Black Tusk at the top of the nearly twenty band bill that includes psych punks Lecherous Gaze and death/grind specialists Skullshitter. If you're more into metal than love, this could be a good way to skip out on Valentine's Day. Head over to D-Fest's Facebook page for more details. Full lineup below.
Toxic Holocaust kick off their previously discussed tour with Ramming Speed in NJ on Saturday (11/16). That tour hits NYC at Saint Vitus on November 29 with In Defence. Tickets for that show are still available.
Toxic Holocaust's new album, Chemistry of Consciousness, is out now, and you can stream it, along with the video for "Acid Fuzz" below. They're also contributing the new track "Life Is a Lie" to Decibel's flexi-disc series, and you can stream that track here.
Also playing D-Fest is Trenchgrinder, who are playing with Eyehategod and Syphilitic Lust at the actual Acheron Saturday night (11/16). The show was recently officially announced after being a "secret," and tickets are still available, but they may not be for much longer considering Eyehategod sold out Saint Vitus last night (11/14).

After a round of dates saw them play a three NYC shows (Culo twice and a Power of The Riff after-party) the boys in Lecherous Gaze are now preparing to release their new LP, On The Skids, via Tee Pee records. Due next week (10/23), Lecherous Gaze continues down the path laid by their former project Annihilation Time, mixing Black Flag/SST punk with old-fashioned rock n' roll leads that owe a debt to Thin Lizzy. Stream the new LP On The Skids in full below.
So far no more East Coast shows are planned for the near future, or any shows for that matter. Until then, dig on the rippers contained below.

The final day of The Power of The Riff festival at Warsaw in Brooklyn over Labor Day Weekend featured a headlining set from sunn 0 ))) who are currently on the road and played a show at Union Transfer in Philly last night with Dead in the Dirt. If you missed them, take David Pajo's word for it... it was a "Triumphant evil assault!"
The Brooklyn show Sunday also featured hefty names like Winter (with their original organist, his first live show!), Repulsion, Double Negative, Coffinworm, Salvation and Dead in The Dirt. Pictures and video from every set are in this post (day one pics are HERE).
Like Xibalba, Power Trip and Lecherous Gaze did on Saturday night (a show announced last minute via Twitter), Coffinworm and Batillus played an afterparty late at Saint Vitus on Sunday (also announced last minute via Twitter). Video of both after-parties and more pictures and video of from the main show on Sunday, below...

Then the next night, start saving for your funeral and check out the following lineup:
*Secret Guest HeadlinerSunday will be $5 to get in or free for POTR attendees.
Lecherous Gaze is scheduled to play three NYC shows this weekend, tagging the unmissable Perdition/Culo/School Jerks/Inservibles/Deformity show at 285 Kent on 8/31 and Low Tide Beach in Rockaway the next day (9/1) with Culo (again), A-Truth, Merda, Mutant Genes, Fake Hooker and Beach Arabs.

Kyle (right) on stage with King Tuff at Knitting Factory last year (more by Jessica Amaya)
For me, the best moment of SXSW 2012, came late Saturday night. The Spider House, a coffee/bar/venue about 3 miles north of the main drag, threw a seven-stage all-day show with Burger Records. A bit after midnight, King Tuff took the main stage, a plush ballroom with disco ball queasily spinning overhead. I'd seen the band play one night before at the Sub Pop showcase at Red 7, where they focused on their new, great self-titled LP, out May 29 on the label. There, the front of the crowd danced around prodded by the trio's radiant weirdness, but here, King Tuff, in matching USA-themed outfits, completely unleashed on their instruments and the crowd followed suit. Some videos can be watched below.
King Tuff's last NYC show was January 2011, and another is long overdue, so here's hoping the new album brings him back to the East Coast. No "King Tuff" dates to report at the moment, but....
Meanwhile, the Tee Pee-signed Witch will headline a one-off NYC show at Santos on April 9th. Support for the show has not been announced, but you can expect Witch to feature the lineup of Dave Sweetapple (Sweet Apple), J.Mascis (Dinosaur Jr.), Graham Clise (Annihilation Time/Lecherous Gaze), and Kyle Thomas (King Tuff). Tickets are on sale.
J Mascis also has a special show coming up at Le Poisson Rouge in May.
Check out some live video of Dinosaur Jr in action at SXSW 2012, and King Tuff too, below.
