If you haven’t ever been mesmerized, molded and met with a curiously mad experience involving the Melvins, then I do not know what the fuck you are waiting for. Hell, I’m not even going to tell you all what they are really about, since you already ought to know. Anyway, Melvins, a band from the dark reaches of the legendary Pacific Northwest comprised chiefly of King Buzzo and Dale Crover—and lately including former Red Kross guitarist Steven Shane McDonald—have a goddamned gig at Launchpad (618 Central NW) on Monday, Oct. 2. I sure as hell hope you will go and say what’s up to these high priests of our country’s rocanrol underground. They’ll probably say hi right back, but may also flip you off in the process. It’s okay, remember it is the Melvins we’re talking about here. Post metal doomgaze magicians Spotlights open. You can see them all in action at about 9pm, for just a Jackson, a 21+ ID and a brain that you are willing to leave behind forever afterwards.
