CONTEST – The Melvins Lite @ The Opera House – July 5, 2012
IpecacWho: The Melvins Lite
What: The kinder, gentler side of sludgy grunge forbears The Melvins. Yes, they have a kinder, gentler side. And it sounds pretty much like the regular Melvins but with a double bass.
Why: The Melvins just released a new album in Freak Puke, which it should be obvious from the title was actually recorded in their stripped-down, Lite configuration. And since we don’t fit in their “50 States in 50 Days” record-breaking US tour this Fall, they may as well play it up here now.
When: Thursday, July 5, 2012
Where: The Opera House in Toronto (19+)
Who else: SoCal’s Retox opens up.
How: Tickets for the show are $26 in advance but courtesy of Union Events, I’ve got two pairs of passes to give away for the show. To enter, email me at contests AT chromewaves.net with “I want to see The Melvins” in the subject line with your full name in the body, and have that in to me before midnight, July 2.
What else: King Buzzo talks to Paste about the aforementioned attempt to conduct the fastest ever tour of the USA.
