Acid Tongue

Acid Tongue is an American-bred garage band heavily influenced by AM-radio soul, folk and psychedelic rock. The band is composed of Guy Keltner & Ian Cunningham – perverted in their youth by adolescent exposure to mind-altering substances and strange, spiritually-driven parenting techniques. Their Brooklyn tip?

Don’t go to any landmarks. You’ll probably lose about 4 hours easily just getting in and out of JFK or LaGuardia. Don’t fly through Newark. So with the leftover 20 hours, don’t plan on sleeping. I’d suggest hitting restaurant after restaurant and eating until you want to die. Then start drinking heavily. The bars don’t really close, so you can find something interesting all over town. By the time you get back on the plane home, you’ll want to die, but your soul will be satisfied.
