1/2 of Big Business on stage w/ Melvins at MHoW (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
Melvins

While the remainder of their other bands are out doing deliciously obnoxious things like playing basements or every single state in the nation, Big Business have plotted out a good old-fashioned US tour for September and October. The "Wild Kingdom" US tour kicks off in San Jose, CA on September 1st and stretches out to the NYC area by the end of that month, hitting Maxwell's in Hoboken on 9/25 (tickets on sale on 7/20 at noon), The Studio at Webster Hall on 9/29 (tickets on sale on 7/20 at 10AM) and Death by Audio on 9/30.

House of Lightning (mem Floor) will support Big Business at the DbA show and for a few days following, though support for the bulk of the trek is still TBA. All dates on that tour are below, along with a video from their recet Mind The Drift LP.

Good thing they're not touring with the Melivns then, condsidering they're what was diluting the Melvins in the first place.

Best part is when he sissy tosses he pink boa to a waiting boy servant during the drum solo. I just lose it every time he does that move.
