Melvins Lite at MHOW, 10/4/2012
The Melvins

Please note in the case of Melvins, "lite" does not mean "less loud." The trio version of the Washington State sludge pioneers bulldozed their way into Brooklyn last night (10/4) for a show at Music Hall of Williamsburg, as part of their world record attempting blitzkrieg/tour of the US, hitting all 50 states and Washington, DC in 51 days. The band get a little bit of a respite tonight, in that their NJ stop is at Maxwell's (10/5), which is almost like staying in one city for two whole days which must come as a luxury.

More photos from last night's MHOW show (including openers Tweak Bird) are below. The band are over the hump, without about 20 days/states/shows to go. The remainder of their World Record Tour dates are listed below.
