Defeatist @ Acheron
Defeatist

There was a definite family vibe at Acheron on Saturday (10/7), with touring band Regents (mems Sleepytime Trio, Frodus, Acid Tiger, Thursday) sharing the stage with NYC grind greats Defeatist, Psychic Limb, and The Year is One. Artist Brian Montouri of Psychic Limb is responsible for Regents cover art and the ties between Defeatist, The Year is One and Psychic Limb go deeper than just sharing this stage, so there was a definite air of friendship that went all around.

Regents' blistering punk rock is propelled by Jason Hamacher's (Frodus) pummeling drums, with Drew Ringo and David NeSmith's dueling guitar and scream vocals. Lukas Previn (Acid Tiger, Thursday) filled in on bass, as the band tore through material off of their debut 7". Stream it in its entirety below.

The show was one of two that I caught on Saturday, the first being Thou, The Body, Alkahest, and Argonauts at ABC No Rio (pictures/review).

Reminder: Psychic Limb will appear aboard the Jewel on 10/22 with Tombs, Skeletonwitch, and Kvelertak as part of the Rocks Off/BV-BBG official showcase. Tickets are still available.

More pictures from Acheron and that 7" stream is below...
