Melvins – Showbox – 10/18/2014

Melvins played the Showbox last night for their “Hold it In” tour.

It was Buzz, Dale, and Butthole Surfers bassist JD Pinkus. Power trio. They lit the place up. Unfortunately no encore, but killer set. They did the Butthole Surfers tune Moving to Florida with Buzz singing. So good. Other tunes I recognized from the Melvins: Night Goat, Youth of America, The Bit, Sweet Willy Rollbar and a few others.

Big Business – Vera Project

Took my son to his first Hardcore show last night: Big Business and the American Sharks. It was at The Vera Project, where it’s All Ages all the time, so he didn’t need fake ID (he’s 19).

Big Business recently put out a new album, Battlefields Forever, and they played it LOUD.

American Sharks were jammin’ as well.

We loved it.  Short set, but they killed it!

Here are some photos and videos.

Crack Sabbath – Darrells

Seattle’s own Crack Sabbath played two sets at Darrells Tavern in Shoreline last night. All-star cast  Skerik, Ron Weinstein, Keith Lowe, Mike Stone, and Brad Mowen brought it, big time.  Probably my favorite set of theirs ever. It was an epic 3 hours of earth shattering hardcore jazz. Don’t miss these guys next time they play.  You won’t be disappointed.
