The Melvins
Melvins 30th Anniversary Tour with Honky at the Firebird July 23
8:00 p.m. / $20

If you don't like the Melvins, you either don't like heavy music or you like it for all the wrong reasons. With over twenty albums under its belt, there isn't much territory in the world of rock, metal and experimental music the band has not only covered but mastered. Over the past 30 years the Melvins have avoided clichés like Satan and death, instead being as strange and silly as anything you can imagine all while being kilo tons heavier than your favorite death metal band. The band that once employed a roadie named Kurt Cobain is still going strong, and none of its members have been murdered by their crazy wives yet (I mean "committed suicide"). Nirvana, Tool, Faith No More, Neurosis, Mastodon and countless others all owe the Melvins for helping shape their sound. All you owe them? Twenty bucks for a ticket to the show.
