Baroness at Bowery Ballroom in 2009 (more by Tim Griffin)

When sludge-metal-turned-alt-rock greats Baroness first announced that they'd be doing a full North American tour this year (their first since their tragic bus crash) we guessed that a NYC show at House of Vans would get added. Once Baroness finally did announce a NYC show, it turned out to actually be happening at Irving Plaza (8/14) with Royal Thunder (tickets).

However, now the band did just announce that they will in fact be playing House of Vans on July 31. And to make it better, it's with The Melvins (which explains their TBA NYC show that day). To make it even better, it's totally free. Stay tuned for more information (an RSVP link is probably forthcoming).

Updated Baroness dates are listed, along with a video, below...

"To make it even better, it's totally free."

Actually, that's the worst part.

I prefer to pay for a show. Less people and only true fans will be attending. Free shows attracts scenesters and lookie-loos.

Yellow and Green is the new black album.

I just don't get this group. I've always heard people talk about them, but last night with the Melvins, they sounded like some Christian hard rock/emo shit to me.

Melvins ruled.
