Ah yes, people. This will be sick. Even sicker than that time you last saw The Melvins live and in concert. The Melvins. You have to respect and love these dudes and what they’ve done over the years. They have inspired many a band who’ve gained more notoriety and fatter bank accounts, so bow down fat buddy.
After finishing a sold-out residency at Los Angeles’ Spaceland not too far back, The Melvins are now taking this idea on the road with two-night stints in six U.S. cities this May. we have all the dates for you after the jump. Go check ‘em out.
The upcoming shows will feature the same set list in each city with the first night kicking off with the band performing songs from Lysol and Egg Nog followed by a second set of music from Houdini. The second night in each mini-residency will be devoted to Bullhead for the first set and Stoner Witch for the second. There will be no opening artists for this tour, and that’s how all “special,” monumental shows should really be. Why should I have to sit through some shit to get to the chaff.
Of course, The Melvins’ Sugar Daddy Live drops on May 31 through the one and only Ipecac Records.
