The grunge legends played to a full house with support from Taipei Houston and We Are the Asteroid
Known for their impact on the grunge genre, the Melvins are single handedly responsible for introducing Dave Grohl and Kurt Cobain, helping to create one of the most iconic music groups in the history of music. The Melvins’ drummer Dale Crover actually filled in for Nirvana before Grohl joined the band. The Melvins’ contributions to grunge don’t end there as their sludgy drop-D sound helped to later influence Soundgarden, Green River and, of course, Nirvana.
Taking much of their own influence by combining punk and Black Sabbath’s signature monolithic roar, the Melvins helped bridge the gap between punk and metal.
39 years later and the band is still going strong, playing a show at Cain’s Ballroom to a room full of die-hard fans. From their zany stage antics to their eccentric clothes, the Melvins put on a show like no other.
