While we’re still dealing with rollercoaster weather patterns, one can’t help but feel that summer is threatening to happen eventually… we’ve had the schedules for Celebrate Brooklyn, Summerstage, 4knots and more. So enjoy today’s sunshine and deal with the rain at the weekend… it can’t last forever! It has been a good week, with La Sera’s fantastic show at Market Hotel last night, an invigorating Secret Science Club lecture at the Bell House on Tuesday, and some great options to look forward to right now. I also want to point out two music-related events that aren’t shows this weekend – the Brooklyn Flea Record Fair on Saturday, now in its 9th year, and a screening of the Damned Documentary, Don’t You Wish That We Were Dead at Rough Trade on Sunday.
The season-long Coachella that was once NYC’s Tecate-soaked, air conditioner-agnostic summer show roster is right around the corner, but before the procession of un-ironic sun hats and color-coordinated side-boob begins its Uber death march north, This One Goes to Eleven has cooked up a little taste of the old days. Friday the 13th at The Acheron. A hardcore band from Pittsburgh. $10, no bullshit, and plenty of beer. Grab your tickets and get in the pit.
Few things on this baking trash heap we call earth are more “metal” than a Friday the 13th, and we (OK, me) here at This One Goes To Eleven are embracing that cliche with our first showcase in over a year. Spearheaded by Pittsburgh doom-core heathens, Slaves BC (who released one of the finest debuts in recent memory last month), and featuring local support from Blackest, Mountain God, and winking sludge upstarts, Pants Exploder, this pit-ready ripper goes down Friday May 13th at The Acheron, so grab your favorite hockey mask and join us.
