ACID DAD was one of the standout bands the we came across during the filming of our live performance series OFF THE M at NYC independent venues MARKET HOTEL and TRANS-PECOS back in late 2018/early 2019.
their is a sense of deja-vu when listening to modern ROCK N ROLL bands in general, where you can identify immediately what era or vibe they are going after, which only contributes to the sense that you've heard all before probably better.
not with ACID DAD. when i listen songs like "Child," "2ci" and "Marine" i am transported. not really sure where, but it feels like when i first discovered films by DEREK JARMAN, GREGG ARAKI or PIER PAOLO PASOLINI in high school. its a world i want to return to as soon as i can.
they are an INDIE ROCK group with a definite sense of melody and song-craft while maintaining an edge. like the first time i heard NIRVANA, i wasn't sure what the lyrics were about per se, but i knew they were genuine and authentic. ACID DAD's 2018 self-titled release on GREENWAY RECORDS is one of my favorite records in recent years.
definitely can't wait to see what they produce next.

last winter we had the good fortune of filming no-frills rock group ACID DAD at a show at bushwick venue MARKET HOTEL as part of our ongoing live performance series OFF THE M. this past spring they were featured on an episode of FISHCENTER on ADULT SWIM which is beyond badass. happy that they are getting more exposure because aside from being a killer live act, they are also a nice group of dudes.
check out their performance of "mr. major" from their self-titled 2018 LP (via Greenway Records).
also check out their live performance "LIVING WITH THE CREATURE" on OFF THE M.
last night our video production team had the pleasure of filming FRANKIE AND THE WITCH FINGERS, NATIVE SUN, FRUIT TONES and FLASYD at SECRET PROJECT ROBOT in bushwick as part of a party hosted by GREENWAY RECORDS. not only were the performances awesome, but our friends over at MACRODOSE had some positively insane visuals going on with their digitally enhanced manual drip projections (360 degrees using five projectors).
we can't wait to see what the label wishes to use the footage for, but in the meantime check out these photos of the show (as well as music, links below go to their spotify/bandcamp accounts).
GREENWAY RECORDS has just announced a show on tuesday march 5 at SECRET PROJECT ROBOT in bushwick featuring the likes of NATIVE SUN, FRUIT TONES and FLASYD as well as an unannounced SECRET LIVE GUEST.
tickets are available through EVENTBRITE.
the stellar drip projections of MACRODOSE will also be on full display as the DEER GOD video production team films the festivities. if you haven't seen these projections in person, check out this recent OFF THE M episode featuring BIG BLISS that incorporates these fluid, psychedelic visuals on full display.
