Acid Dad
Acid Dad
Conceived at a drag show in Brooklyn in August 2014, Acid Dad has quickly become one of the most talked-about bands in the New York scene. Over the past year, their string of infectious psych-punk singles has earned them nods from the likes of Nylon, The Deli, CMJ, Village Voice, Impose, Hero Mag and more, and has garnered them slots on Gigawatts Festival and Color Me Bushwick. Dingus once described them as “so f***ing good,” and if you listen to their latest single, “Grim,” you’ll see why. Between dropping awesome tracks like that one, Acid Dad has made a name for themselves as one of the tightest and most energetic live bands in the Brooklyn scene. The band recently played 6 CMJ shows, including Austin Psych Fest's Levitation showcase at Rough Trade along with Drinks, Mild High Club and Shannon & the Clams. Look out for their debut EP in early 2016.

It’s not easy for people with strange, sometimes puzzling minds to control the sounds in their heads and effectuate them into meaning through sound. Noah Champ, Los Angeles native expatriated to New York, has one of those elusive minds: neither here nor there, but somewhere in between, constantly building and re-building upon the expanses of thought. His music, penned field trip, exposes a deeply-altered perspective, horrified and charged by new environs and feelings. Unlike many, Champ has successfully been able to materialize the emotional voids at the core of his person, and has etched them on tape for us to indulge in.

Champ moved to New York in what proved to be a deeply-altering time not only for him, but for his new home’s music scene. The beau monde-induced demise of dominant venues like Death by Audio and 285 Kent prophesied the inevitable extinction of the tight-knit, music-first rooms that incubated records the band regarded as scripture.

Wishing to experience these space’s ephemeral legacy and mythos, Champ (singer/drums), joined by Nico Geyer (guitar), Phillip Braun (synthesizers), sprung on an opportunity to play at Palisades in late 2014, having since been joined by Will Sacks (guitar) and Claire Gilb (bass). Another year of playing and ambling in New York finds field trip tapping into further reaching sounds, connecting the dots between the likes of Factory Records alums, early trip hop, and space-age California. The band released their debut LP, Horror Vacui, on 11/11/16.
