I saw a lot of bands at the four day Oya Festival in Norway this year, but only a few performances REALLY stuck out. One of them was Nine Inch Nails, another was Gogol Bordello, and another one of my favorites was by the Melvins. I always need a little metal in my life to balance out all the folk & indie rock, and – with the help of two drummers – Melvins rocked so hard. It was perfect. The second they were done playing, I was thinking I wanted to see them again. It was tempting to try and go find the afterparty they were playing in Oslo, but I never did.

I think I’ll go see them again when they play in NY – October 5th @ the Fillmore Irving Plaza, or the next day at Luna Lounge in Brooklyn. Tickets go on sale Friday. More pictures and tour dates, below….

Melvins are an American rock/metal band that usually perform as a trio. Singer/guitarist Buzz Osborne (aka “King Buzzo”) and drummer Dale Crover are constant members, but several bass guitarists have been through the group, and they have occasionally added a guest or second guitarist for live performances. The band was named after a supervisor at the Thriftway in Montesano, Washington where Osborne served as a clerk (and vandal). Melvin was greatly despised, and the band’s members felt it to be an appropriately ridiculous name. [Wikipedia]
