Staff Pick: Melvins at A&R Music Bar

By
From the May 23, 2013 edition

If Rock on the Range performances by Soundgarden and Alice in Chains have stoked your appetite for the sounds of Seattle, the Melvins will take you back even further.

The masters of sludge are marking a special occasion on this tour: their 30th anniversary. And while Buzz Osborne (aka King Buzzo) has a lot more grey creeping into that famous mop of hair, you can still expect loud droning distortion to rank with the best of them.

A&R shows have been prompt of late, so don’t dawdle. Doors open at 8 p.m.
