It's time to rejoice, all you non-Los Angeles Melvins fans. We know some of you were jealous of your West Coast cohorts who got to see the band during their recent residency at L.A.'s Spaceland. Well, the sludge rockers heard your call and are taking the residency concept on the road for six two-night stints in cities across the U.S. this May and June.
The performances will feature the same set list in each city, so those of you in Boston thinking about hitting up the New York City shows can chill. The first night's first set will include songs from Lysol and Egg Nog followed by a second set of cuts from Houdini. Then, the second night's first set will feature Bullhead in its entirety with Stoner Witch closing out the evening.
This will pretty much be a must-attend event for fans, such as myself, who have only seen the Melvins in the past few years, during which they have played a majority of newer tunes.
