NYC Psych Punks Acid Dad play Aviv on 06.06

NYC Psych Punks Acid Dad play Aviv on 06.06

Even though they always shared a common passion for drugs, Punk music and Psychedelia have mostly been at opposite sides of the alternative rock spectrum, which prevented a lot of genre-blending (with some noteworthy exceptions like Butthole Surfers and early Mercury Rev). Brooklyn's Acid Dad, who've been active for less than one year and have three singles on their Soundcloud page, call their music "psych punk." Their repertoire doesn't touch the level of sonic insanity of the aforementioned artists, but does offer a fun blend of those genres, with a heavier punk accent. Notwithstanding their short existence, they are already getting a good amount of attention and made a list of best 10 new emerging NYC bands (which interestingly featured some not very new bands). You can check them out live at Aviv on June 6 with The Gradients and other locals.

We added this song to The Deli's playlist of Best punk/garage songs by emerging NYC artists - check it out!
