Melvins @ Music Hall of Williamsburg
Melvins

Melvins completed their NYC run last night (6/7), covering the classic releases Bullhead and Stoner Witch in their entirety over the course of the Tuesday night show. Check out a picture of the setlist from last night, as well as some video from the show below.

On Monday night (6/6), the Melvins focus was on three other classics, Lysol, Egg Nog, and Houdini. We already posted the setlist and pictures from that show, but a second set of pictures from that one are in this post too (we don't have a full set from Tuesday). More of them below.

Melvins also did the same in Austin, and will next give Minneapolis a taste. Their two shows there are on June 13th & 14th. Hopefully they're on their way in a car, and not a plane.

Though Melvins won't be back to Music Hall of Williamsburg in the forseeable future, Jared and Coady of the band will... with their band Big Business who joins Torche and Helms Alee for a tour and a show at the Brooklyn venue on July 20th. Tickets are still available.

Speaking of Helms Alee, the band will release their new LP Weatherhead via Hydrahead on June 21st. Stream a new Helms Alee song at the Hydrahead Records Soundcloud page. Still no word on more Harkonen shows (Ben Verellen of Helms Alee is a member), but we'll keep you up to date.

Torche didn't play Maryland Deathfest 2011, but 2/3 of them, I'm sorry... half of them, did as Shitstorm.

Vinny Signorelli took Dale Crover's sticks at the end and played his kit against Cody. Awesome ending. Amazing night of super loud music.

The buzzing harmonics of the ripping Melvin guitar solos are reminiscent of a noisy blender that is struggling to blend a large lump of chickpeas. Am I alone in that?

Anybody badmouthing The Melvins is probably "so PUMPED to get front row for all the Williamsburg Waterfront shows," and is still raving about the Arcade Fire shows at MSG.

So basically you post the same lame joke on any post on a band that's been together longer than your dumb ass has been an adult, right? Hardy Har Har...we get it.

Oh, snap. You got me. Now I'll need to just go home.
Oh, wait ... I was born here. You're the tool from Iowa that moved here to go to NYU on daddy's dime.
So, when you get done blowing me, you can wash my car. OK?

Posted by Anonymous | June 8, 2011 5:48 PM

He's not from Iowa. He just dresses that way.

Wait, so does every fauxhemian. My bad. I guess I don't know which hick state he's from.

Posted by Anonymous | June 8, 2011 7:26 PM

5:48, do you really feel superior because of the (purported) region you were born in?

some of the Thinking Fellers grew up in Iowa. what has your sorry ass ever created?

I went both nights and...this band is one of the greatest ever. I don't care about your follow up opinion.

Posted by Anonymous | June 8, 2011 7:26 PM

Hes probably from the "hick" state with a city with 2 million + people and public schools a million times more in quality than the pathetic ones you went to in your myopic little NYC world.

Posted by Anonymous | June 9, 2011 4:30 AM

ouch, bringing public schools into the forum. "and with a whisper he screams out his ignorance."

4:30 is obviously from somewhere even more remote than Iowa

Don't worry 4:30 - we born and bred New Yorkers are a welcoming bunch. Just stay in your place, and don't try to rise above your corn-fed roots.

And it's nice to know you are one of those hicks who would not even consider raising your kids here, and attending public schools. Guess you're off to Connnecticut or back to Kansas when the little ones arrive.

Posted by Anonymous | June 9, 2011 7:28 AM

re. 4:30
Ah, public schools in America ... it's good to know that the problem is limited to New York City, and the overabundance of students from Chicago, Kansas City, Houston, San Diego, etc. are in fact flooding our universities with post graduate work in engineering, math, chemistry, physics, philosophy, classics, et. al. I'm glad that you pointed this out to me, 4:30, in that I was under the impression from other news sources that those programs are currently populated with students from everywhere in the world other than those superior public school systems that you hold in higher esteem than New York City. We're lucky to have you here to bring us the truth and help keep us grounded in facts.

^ Go argue about something else, somewhere else, you clowns.


"I went both nights and...this band is one of the greatest ever. I don't care about your follow up opinion."

And that's really what matters. That you enjoyed it and shouldn't care what others think.

these songs sounded really fresh when I first saw them play about 20 years ago. damn we're all getting old...whats up with the $25 tour 7"?

Posted by nygrump | June 9, 2011 10:54 AM

10:23 = favorite color is beige, likes his water lukewarm, got C+'s in school, now sports the hipster patch so as not to offend anyone on his block. "Can't we all just get along?"

Posted by Anonymous | June 9, 2011 11:05 AM

11:05: You can amuse only yourself for so long.

But just to ruin your fantasy, my favorite color is green, prefer semi-cold water, averaged around an A-, was born and raised in New York my whole life, and has a pretty good amout of decency and common sense (unlike your apparent trendy loser mentality).

Sorry, thanks for playing. Try again soon!

11:29 .... and we believe you too, Anonymous. I had no idea you were Pat Sayjak. Well, here we go, sports fan ... how about you tell us who you really are next time? Obviously you are over compensating, and rather poorly at that. Nice try though! We all still like you, and value your opinion! No, not really. Not at all actually.
