King Buzzo of The Melvins @ Mohawk on 4/19
The Melvins came to The Mohawk on 4/19 and brought the loudness with gods of NYC noise-rock Unsane as part of their tour together. Did you go? Manage to score one of those Melvins/Unsane "cagematch" splits?
Same Sack provided local support. If the name isn't familiar, the faces might be. It's a (relatively) new project that includes King Coffey (Butthole Surfers) on drums, Craig Clouse (Todd) on bass, and Matt Turner (Rubble) on... well also on bass.
King Buzzo and crew played 14 songs (or maybe 15 - if you count the "Hung Bunny" & "Roman Dog Bird" medley as two songs - the printed set list was only labeled "LYSOL") to a packed house, and judging by the volume levels, probably to the rest of the neighborhood too. Melvins' Coady and Dale took over drum-duty during Unsane's set as Vinny Signorelli was not able to make the show.
More pictures and the Melvins' set list, below...
True Widow's heavy shoegaze will be featured at a Melvins/Unsane after-show at Mohawk on April 19th, when the band will be joined by like-minded yet wholly different French shoegaze-BM crew Alcest (who played Austin as part of the BV-BBG day party during SXSW). Tickets for both the Melvins show AND the after-show are still available.
Following that Mohawk show True Widow will play four more Texas shows before hitting the road for a string of dates that hits the East Coast. All tour dates are listed again below.

As discussed on BV and then officially announced in full today, Melvins will hit the road for a string of dates with Unsane this spring. The pair will tour the US in April and May, tagging Mohawk on April 19th. Ticketing info is forthcoming.
Unsane's new album, Wreckwill hit via Alternative Tentacles on March 20th. For more details on the LP, head to BrooklynVegan. The band is also prepping a tour-only split with Melvins that will see each band cover the other.
