That's a perfect venue - the sound has always been great there, and it's just the right size. Dale was funny that night.

oh yeah, forgot about that.
interesting words about the venue though, always found that room awkward, as in too big for what it is (small stage, average lighting). i feel theres too much empty space or somthing, lacks atmos, unless i'm right in front of the band.

Cat's Cradle, Chapel Hill 2002
Cat's Cradle, Chapel Hill 2004
Orange Peel, Asheville 200? (it was on the ASA tour, the show that Walsby recounts in that Manchild issue.  I think I still have hearing damage from this)
Blue Cat's, Knoxville 2008?  (second ASA tour)
Double Door, Chicago 2009 (Houdini anniversary mini tour.  This was such a pro-fan show; they play many many songs from all over their catalog.)

I wish I could have caught the BSM tour, but the money wasn't there at the right time. 
I also saw Fantomas in Chapel Hill in 2005.  This thread makes me miss NC.

Waaahhh! You must be very happy! You saw Jelvins with The Dicks and Zolar-X! That'll never happen to me, although its the sort of thing I dream about. And you took your mother-in-law to a show. That's not the sort of thing I dream of but its impressive nonetheless! I think I need to spend a month in California.

It would need to be a well-timed month in California...keep in mind, a lot of these shows required lots and lots of driving, but never more than like 9 hours.

Her mom is young and is into the heavy shit. She used to go see the Ozzfest shows by herself. Huge fan of bands like Sabbath, White Zombie, Zepp...etc.

What did her mom think of Melvins? Compared to her more conventional 'Heavy' music.....

The first time was when they toured with Primus.  When was that 93 or 94?
Pretty much ever tour since then that has come through Colorado.  15+ times for sure

If the amount of headbanging she did was any reflection than she absolutely loved it...

She had some words to say about certain songs being too short and others being too clashing...like how they can get into a groove and then whisk you away to another awesome part...but to her it was more like she was getting tugged out of the jam. Just not used to them...yet.

A mere 2 times unfortunately.  First was the Houdini show with Trevor Dunn in Dublin.  Second was the Senile Animal tour in Galway with porn and big business.  Saw Fantomas too and met Buzz.  Nice Guy.  I don't think Melvins played Ireland previous to the Houdini show.
Title: Re: how many times have you seen melvins live?
Post by: (PAUL) on September 01, 2010, 04:43:15 PM
Saw them 11 times now, let me see if I can recall them all:

1999, The Rave Bar, Milwaukee. Pre mumu, shortly after the Maggot came out. There was some technical hitches that night, so they played Okie from Muskogee while figuring it out. Heavy as hell. Cosmic Psychos opened and were entertaining. My friend got sick and had to leave halfway through.
2000, The Rave Bar, Milwaukee. 2x4 tour. Some guy from the audience tried singing Smell Like Teen Spirit, but halfway through gave up and the audience sang the rest. Great to hear two sets, kinda wish they would have played more full songs instead of just snippets, though.
2002, The Metro, Chicago.  Jucifer opened and were pretty great. The Melvins played all of HAT that night, it was great.
2003, The Metro again I think, Chicago. Geek Tour. Skeleton Key opened and were great, got their album Obtainium shortly after. Melvins played a set pretty similar to the set last year (and At A Crawl!). Tomahawk were good too. Overall, one of my favorite shows.
2004, Double Door, Chicago. Trevor Dunn opened, he was okay. Melvins were pretty heavy that night, but I wasn't completely feeling it, that is until Jello came out and the place went apeshit. Note that Jello is lighter than he looks, and has a funny smell about him.
2006, High Noon Saloon, Madison and Shank Hall, Milwaukee. The sets were pretty much identical, although Dale wore the Fat Elvis outfit for the first time in Milwaukee during the Porn set. First time seeing Big Business, thought they came across better live than on record at the time. Melvins played a bunch of stuff I didn't know as it was before A Senile Animal came out. May have been one of the only people in the crowd to like Ghostdigital.
2008, High Noon Saloon, Madison. Great set, liked Big Business a lot, too. BORIS!!!
2009, Double Door, Chicago. Houdini show. I thought it was just going to be Melvins '83 then Houdini but got a bunch of stuff in between and they finished with The Bit! Houdini isn't my favorite by them, but it was a great show, another favorite.
2009, some club north of Chicago. Opening for Down. Weadeater was okay, not really my thing, though. Melvins were amazing, even if they only got to open. Left before Down. One note on the Down fans, they seemed okay to me, but I've never seen so many people wearing shirts of the band they're there to see; I thought it was kinda dumb, personally.
2010, High Noon Saloon, Madison. Came in during Totimoshi, who were pretty good. Played two sets, amazing sets, too. My friend got part of Dale's drumstick, I'm still jealous.

Well, that's it.

Post by: Greasy Statement on September 02, 2010, 03:47:23 PM
13 as of last night. that includes seeing the fantomas big band once....

Oct 93-Concert Hall, Toronto: Opening for Primus. Wasn't into them at the time, but loved Buzz's hair, Dale's drumming and the way they dragged "Sacrifice" out and utterly pissed off the audience
June '97-Opera House, Toronto: Opening for Helmet. Went as a Melvins fan this time. They DESTROYED Helmet. Started with an awesome version of Boris
June 00-Guvernment, Toronto: Not the best I've seen them. Shitty attendance, HORRIBLE venue
May '03-Fantomas/Melvins Big Band, Victoriaville Quebec: Only an hour, but an awesome hour
October '06-Showplace, Buffalo: First time I saw the Big Melvins lineup. Amazing transition from "Another Fourth of July" straight into "The Talking Horse". At this show I transitioned to being a big fan of the band to a worshipper
July '07-Slim's, San Francisco: Celebrated quitting my job by traveling to SF to see them do Houdini one night, Lysol/Eggnog on the other. Pure rapture
Sept. '07-Small's, Detroit: Cool to see them in such an intimate fashion. Jared Warren making whale noises at the end
August '08-Town Ballroom, Buffalo
August '08-Water Street Music Hall, Rochester-Was caught in traffic trying to get to the show and only managed to catch the last 20 minutes of the set. My one friend who hadn't caught them since 2000 didn't care. Met Jared after the show and he was super nice. Dale was walking back and forth in front of me and I was terrified.
September '09-Town Ballroom, Buffalo: Kind of minimal turnout, but it was a last minute show. They still rocked it mightily, although I missed the "Melvins Lite" set due to having to pick up a bunch of people beforehand. Awesome cover of "Mr. DNA"
June '10-Small's, Detroit-The greatest Melvins show I've ever seen. Just perfect and epic. Angry Dale ruled
Sept '10- Opera House, Toronto-Witnessed their glorious return to my stomping grounds

Cat's Cradle, Chapel Hill 2002
Cat's Cradle, Chapel Hill 2004
Orange Peel, Asheville 200? (it was on the ASA tour, the show that Walsby recounts in that Manchild issue.  I think I still have hearing damage from this)
Blue Cat's, Knoxville 2008?  (second ASA tour)
Double Door, Chicago 2009 (Houdini anniversary mini tour.  This was such a pro-fan show; they play many many songs from all over their catalog.)

I wish I could have caught the BSM tour, but the money wasn't there at the right time. 
I also saw Fantomas in Chapel Hill in 2005.  This thread makes me miss NC.

The Asheville show was Oct.26,2006 and second show in Knoxville was Oct. 12,2007 (I know,  I was there).

I discovered Melvins in 2002 and I am a huge fan, but since I live in Montreal and they dont come here often, I only saw them twice;

1. 18 May 2007 in Victoriaville (they played mostly Senile Animal mixed with Houdini)
2. Yesterday at Club Soda in Montreal

Melvins is the best band to see live.

But as a continent, there doesn't seem to be a punk ethic there. Lord knows Africans should have something to scream and shout about, but their art generally seems colourful and traditional, even when depicting / singing about the hell that is everyday life for so many. I'm fairly curious about this.

I'd follow Melvins on a Middle East tour for sure. Awesome experience. Africa too, seeing as I haven't been there yet, either.

It took me 19 years to get to see them. DC, last summer. Awesome, got my ears literally blown out, ended up with double ear infection. No shit. My wife is short, so she didn't get the same bass frequencies that I got. My friends wore professional quality earplugs, and one of them kept fighting with the plugs to even stay in. He said they kept "walking out" of his ear canals. I couldn't hear shit for two days, but I loved every minute of it. After the show, I could only hear high frequencies, everybody sounded like chipmunks, it was really weird.

Call me stupid, I'm okay with that. But I waited 19 years to see them, and I WANTED my face blown off.

And they delivered.

I'd love to compile a list of all the times I've seen them but the tour archive is missing way too many dates to make that possible.
Put it this way...I got turned on to Nirvana by seeing them open for Melvins. I've seen them open for Gwar, White Zombie, and Tool.
Been there for just about every seattle show they've done and sometimes I'll include olympia or portland.

...what a long strange trip it's been

Thankfully, there is a new venue that just opened up in GR called the The Pyramid Scheme that is perfect for the Melvins to play at and I was talking to owner and they are going to do whatever it takes to get them to start playing there.

I just saw THE BIZ there a couple months ago.

I remember Melvins83 played the first night and Melvins played the second.  They didn't play again on the third day? I really can't remember.  I'll have to find the program and amend my list if not.

Would have been more but I missed out on a lot of shows due to not turning 21 until 1998.  And the 2003-2005 shows were missed due to some bullshit.

once! i am a terrible Melvins fan.

i saw them open for Nirvana at The Marquee in NYC in 90-something... 91 maybe?

i had heard of them, but hadnt heard them until that night. i seemed to be one of the few people there who was actually interested if memory serves. i remember lots of lound, long, droning notes. it was great.

i really want to see them again, someday soon hopefully. thinking about going to see them in NYC at the Webster at the end of this month, but not sure if i can make it.

other than that, ive seen Buzz at 2 or 3 Fantomas shows.

Yes..  I remember it was right when LYSOL came out.  Remember chatting to him next to a pinball machine havin' a beer.
Somehow Tad Doyle's band came up.  Distinctly recall Joe hated the band but thought TAd the person was cool.

can you tell me anything about that 1997 show that might help my terrible memory?
Darn, that was a long time ago. Did they start with Amazing Grace? That rings a bell, somewhere.

I agree that the 2001 show at Mean Fiddler was the best. In fact that's the most amazing gig I've ever been to. Nothing in the future will be as astonishing as that. That's kind of a bummer thinking like that, but I just cant imagine anything coming close. Something magic happened that night.

All your gigs were in London! That's an achievement in itself!

can you tell me anything about that 1997 show that might help my terrible memory?
Darn, that was a long time ago. Did they start with Amazing Grace? That rings a bell, somewhere.

I agree that the 2001 show at Mean Fiddler was the best. In fact that's the most amazing gig I've ever been to. Nothing in the future will be as astonishing as that. That's kind of a bummer thinking like that, but I just cant imagine anything coming close. Something magic happened that night.

All your gigs were in London! That's an achievement in itself!
Nope...just makes it look like i hate travelling!

I think the Paradise is my favorite place I've ever seen them.  It might just be because the show was so good, but I had a great time there.

It was a great venue.  It was one of the 25th anniversary shows I went to and I just loved it.  I had a great view for shooting video from the balcony too.

Twice-

1998 At Ozzfest, St. louis. The setlist was three songs. Youth of America for a half an hour (that pissed off a lot of people), The Bloat, and Night Goat.

The second time was in 2008 on the Nude with Boots tour.

Haha I can imagine  :lol:
I haven't actually seen them live yet, because they hardly ever come to these parts of Canada, unfortunately. That and I'm too broke to go out of town for a concert..... But I'm seeing them for the first time on July 10th!

Alas I wasn't the show in 1994 at the Garage but that would have been proper mental! Napalm Melvins! How IS the Universe still intact, seriously?! In the Garage? The only explanation for the survival of the human race in a venue that small was that the venue IMPLODED in a blaze of death and vanished into another Universe where it still broadcasts live to this Universe today.

Is that a fair numbering system, would you say? or are you gonna take me down to 35 because it's 35 SEPARATE OCCASIONS that i paid to see them?! I'm not too bothered either way - I've seen the Melvins MORE than 30 times and that makes me feel all HAPPY inside :lol:

Some day soon, I will begin the mammoth task of finishing off that Ipecac book I've been working on for a while (a slight excerpt was in that post a while back about "Hugh") , but for now, I'm afraid, preparation for a job interview tomorrow!

Goodnight from Europe

First show was in february 1991 - the Hague, Holland. Last ones were two consecutive nights in Vienna this year.  Rarely missed a beat in between when they would visit The Netherlands. Fond memories of the Cameron Jamie Kranky Klaus live soundtrack show in Middelburg, 2004.  I guesstimate that makes a fortnight of Melvins at least.  I bow down to the mighty Jules who i may have spilled my beer on at the Haarlem show, 2011.

The 87 show was the moment they became my favorite band - full Star Trek uniformed Melvins.

The 1990 show was with Lorax on bass. Matt Lukin was there and got up on stage at some point during the Melvins set and started going off in the mic about how he used to be in the band. Bouncers removed him.

There's no way to compare to some of ya'll - but I'm somewhere around 17 or 18. I lost count recently. First time was in 1997, I think, when they were on tour with Helmet and Skeleton Key. I was 14 and it was at First Ave in MPLS.

Yeah, we should, although we were both at King Eddy's last year. We have 88 shows between us. I was sure you'd be at the NYE gig this time round, gah! Never mind. Next year.

sadcorps,did you see all melvins lineups?  :shock:
....and ask him if Dale played drums with Plainfield when they supported......

I missed the Joe Preston lineup. I don't know what the fuck I was doing or thinking during that time, because I did buy Lysol and the solo albums when they came out. It is something I will regret for the rest of my life.

But I have seen all of the other main lineups. Did not see Tom Flynn or Billy Anderson in Melvins - that would have ruled! But I did get to play in a band with Billy Anderson (ASVA) so that was close enough for me!!!

When I saw Plainfield, Dale did not play drums. However, Trey Spruance was on guitar and Smelly Mustafa was on vocals. Once I ate dinner with Trey and Smelly and told them how rad the show was and how the whole time Buzz and Dale were at the side of the stage with evil laughter!!! Smelly was an evil hillbilly when I saw Plainfield. But when I ate dinner with him he was a really nice clean cut real estate agent. Fucking awesome dinner that was.

I did get to see Dale play drums with Nirvana (at the time called Ted Ed Fred). That was quite an amazing show.

88 shows between us Jules! Hell yes!

MELVINS-with the band Shunt opening-Toronto 2000-@ the Guverment (best and LOUDEST show Ive ever been to since)

Melvins-opening for MELVINS-Victoriaville Fimav-2007 (Mind numbingly well played set)  Met Buzz loading out the next morning because we ended up in the same hotel as them..Jared stared at me with discontent when I picked up a cigarette butt in front of him and proceeded to smoke it. Buzz Was Super cool and Very nice indeed!!! Truly you are a king of kings!!! 

Melvins-opening for MELVINS-sept-2010 Opera house (or was it 2011, I dont remember BSM tour) Sound guy had the mix out of whack in the low end a little. 

Melvins Lite-Opening for melvins (and with the air conditioners working this time) Opera house-June 2012 (Very Excellent sound thanks to Cliff behind the board) Again, Apologies to Buzz, I think a little pot smoke got blown his way Luckily the fan of his helped disperse it, I really hadnt meant for that to happen, Sorry, I permit thee one swift Kick in my Ass for my impudence your grace! Dale Stole the show at the end and Trevors solo was Astounding!!! Buzz played like a Tight rope Walker dances across the Grand canyon! 

Melvins LiteW Retox opening-Hamilton @ club absinthe, The most small intimate melvins experience I had the privellage of attending. (A day fit for a king!!! got served free beer, FREE BEER!!! down the street before the show, Talked with Dale, and gave a tip of the Hat to Trevors Killer bass, and met Flutter and Bigjim!, followed the Melvins as they went on, to cut through the Crowd to find a good spot in the audience I was the king of the world!  plus I smelled Terrible and had a nice big spot to stand all by myself to enjoy the show in peace.  :P

I had a count list going but lost it, and I think I'm sitting at around 16 or 17 shows I've seen - don't know if Buzz's show this Sunday will count. :) It's good to be a Melvins fan in the Twin Cities area - since it seems I get to see the Melvins at least once a year. First show I saw was in 96 or 97 - tour with Helmet and Skeleton Key at First Avenue. I was 14 - it was the second concert I'd ever been too.

I've seen the melvins every year since 1999. For the past 5 years I've seen them at least 2-3 times a year. At least 25 times all in all.  I live in Virginia and it's rare for them to come here but they always come to DC.  I've also gone to Ga, NC, PA, NY, and Boston for the residency show.

One year I started in Athens GA and followed them to philly. I saw them 4 times on that trip. It was a great road trip. I was alone and slept in my car. I even got lucky enough to randomly pick the same hotel that the melvins stayed at. It was quite surreal. The one night I decided I needed a bed, I chose a hotel based off of its huge hotel sign from the interstate. Of course I was driving in the same direction as them, from DC to Philly.  As I'm parking my car I see Dale, Cody and Jared unloading their things. Dale was smoking a cigarette. They saw me and seemed to have an "oh shit this guy is stalking us" look on their faces. So I just waved and parked and didn't bother them. I had a tweak bird shirt on so I know they knew I was a fan. The next morning I saw Cody at a gas station across the street and I talked to him a bit. He was very nice. I explained how I wasn't stalking them and he laughed.  I saw him again on the street in Philly walking with an Asian girl before the show when he tapped me on the shoulder and said "u really are stalking us aren't u" and laughed.  It was a cool experience. Sometimes I wish I had just gone up and talked to them but who wants to piss 3/4 of the melvins off?

4-28-00-DC-black cat 2x4 tour
    First melvins show at 18 yrs old. Leif Garrett sang smells like teen spirit. I took a bunch of pics including one with buzz but the camera was unknowingly put on the "b" setting instead of "auto" and nothing came out. I gave buzz a cd of my band in which he accepted and bowed to me. I remember him saying "no worries" a lot. We saw dale drinking a beer at the bar before the show. I also got one of buzz's picks as well as the set list. Buzz signed the pick "kbo" and my ticket stub, dale signed the setlist and joked "how am I going to know what to play tomorrow night?"
4-22-01-DC-black cat (w/folk implosion)
6-18-02-DC-black cat (w/Isis)

10-25-05-DC-black cat (jelvins)
10-19-06-DC-black cat (w/porn,big biz)
   There were 2 16 year old kids next to me the entire show that kept knocking into me, one of them kicked me in the head while trying to crowd surf. At the end of the set Cody threw out his drumsticks and I pushed one of the 16 yr old kids out of the way to get it. The kid looked at me and said "damn dude." I just looked at him and smiled. That felt good.
10-23-06-Va-star hill music hall (w/porn,big biz)
10-7-07-DC-black cat-(I can't remember who opened)
8-17-07-Atlanta-drunken unicorn (w/ big biz)
8-18-08-Athens-40 watt club (w/big biz)
9-13-08-Boston-house of blues (w/down)
   Showed up late due to traffic from a Red Sox double header. Disappointed that the melvins did t       headline, IMO down sucked.
6-14-10-Athens-40 watt club (totimoshi,Isis-Isis farewell tour)
6-16-10-DC-9:30(w/totimoshi,Isis)

Yea. Obviously I meant walsby. Damn autocorrect.  I think yr right, the DC show in 07 was when they did purge of dissidents. I do remember one show where they had a screen down and showed that and I don't think there was another band. I also remember the dames opening for them too somewhere. I don't know. It's surprisingly hard to remember things like that after 20 years. Even if it is the one thing I look forward to every year. I'm looking forward to seeing buzz in Louisville Kentucky in 10 days. Although I do hope the melvins come back later this year. Buzz doing an acoustic set will be fun but u just can't beat the experience of seeing the melvins in full swing and having that heavenly wave of evil sound fill every pore of yr body.

Happy Fun Ball contains a liquid core, which, if exposed due to rupture, should not be touched, inhaled, or looked at. So, only if the liquid core is not exposed due to rupture.

4.  Every single time was great and had it's own unique awesome moments. 

2006 - 3 songs with David fucking Yow!
2007 - Tighter, Buzz tells jokes about starting a basketball team, Jared tells guy to stop punching people, Lizzy
2009 - Even Tighter, Pigs of the Roman Empire, Down fans getting pissed off during Pigs of the Roman Empire
2010- Tightest, Water Glass & Evil New War God, LYSOL

I know I've seen them more than any other band but I can't remember how many times.  I guess it's time to go through the tour archive.


October 28, 2006 Athens, GA - 40 Watt Club w/ Big Business, Harvey Milk, PORN (The Men Of) and special guest David Yow
October 10, 2007 Athens, GA - 40 Watt Club
September 1, 2009 - Atlanta, GA - CW Center Stage w/ Down
June 14, 2010 - Athens, GA - 40 Watt Club w/ Isis, Totimoshi
April 25, 2012 - Atlanta, GA - The Loft at Center Stage w/ Unsane
October 13, 2012 – Athens, GA – 40 Watt Club w/Tweak Bird (Melvins Lite)
August 5, 2013 - Atlanta, GA - The Loft at Center Stage Atlanta w/ Honky
July 22, 2014 - Atlanta, GA - The Basement (w/Emma Ruth Rundle) (King Buzzo solo)
November 8, 2014 - Atlanta, GA - The Loft at Center Stage (w/Honky)
July 5, 2015 - Nashville, TN - Exit In


So 10 if it's including the solo Buzz show. 

For some reason the two shows with Honky are blurring together.  Didn't the 2013 tour have Dale and Coady with Pinkus while the 2014 one was just Dale and Pinkus?  I think it's coming back to me now.

My first live melvins was in Olympia, Wa 2005. With Jello Biafra. I've seen them live every year since, when they come to washington. Sooooooo I've lost count......+ the back to back Seattle shows. Lame bumpershoot festival this year. So first Portland melvins show I've ever seen this year.

Yeah, either they skipped over my area and I didn't want to drive to Texas, or I was working.

portland wonder ballroom with big business/ jared 2008
seattle showbox with green river and trevor dunn/melvins 83 with dale on bass. 2009
seattle nuemos all ages section with honkey/pinkus 2013
vancouver bc kommodore ballroom with honkey/pinkus (was 19 and "Drinking age" in bc for that one, otherwise wouldve gone to wild buffalo bellingham show a few blocks from my house) 2013
bellingham shakedown just buzzo 2014
bellingham wild buffalo with pinkus and le butcherettes 2014
portland wonder ballroom with big business/ jared 2015


so in the last 7 years ive seen them 7 times. 2010 was vitod by my sister because of her birthday. not making that mistake again. i couldnt go in 2011 because there were no local all ages shows if memory serves me, 2012 was a hectic year and i didnt get around to it which was a HUGE regret (plus i think that one was 21/over also), such a mistake missing melvins lite.

this year i planned to see them in bc, portland, and sf but wifes car accident got in the way of bc and sf. made portland though.

its funny cause to me pinkus was the least favorite bassist for me, and never really felt like a melvins bassist but now that i think of it, hes the bassist ive seen almost every time.


i first got into the melvins in probably 2007/2008 so thats not a terrible track record. theyre the only band ive made an effort/paid to go see.

i saw the stooges in 2007 by miracle of friend buying two tickets and inviting me the night of.

I want to hit double digits now as far as Melvins shows. But discounting Kentucky bands there's no band I've seen more than the Melvins.

Therefore the Melvins win.

I've lost track but would estimate I am somewhere in the 20-30 Melvins shows range. First one was opening for Napalm Death and Neurosis at Maritime Hall in San Francisco on 4/7/99 and my most recent one was at The Ritz in San Jose on 3/19/16. If I had to pick a quick favorite, it would be the 12/29/12 performance at Great American Music Hall in San Francisco; Big Business iteration of the band, killer setlist, plus on my birthday with a solid group of friends.

It`s not the quantity, it`s the quality and I`m sure Melvins were at their best the 4 times I`ve seen them so far and that they will be at their best in Malmø on saturday. Never understood
the deal with seeing them a zillion times during a tour, seeing that many haven`t got a ticket due to a sold out show, it would feel wrong to grab hold of one, when you`ve seen them a shitful of times earlier.

i pretty much try to catch them once, if possible twice per tour.
melvins are the best whenever you see them live... so quantity matters.  :D

How'd you remember them all?  Write them down somewhere, save ticket stubs, ...?  I honestly couldn't tell you how many times I've seen them. Beginning in the early 90's (maybe Glen remembers, as I was most likely with him) through now, around 20ish times I'd say.

Number of times seen Melvins - 0

Between us we've seen the band once!

Dec 2003 - Adelaide, Australia - Ipecac Geek Show tour (Heaven nightclub) w/ Tomahawk, Fantomas


Are you an aussie? Have you ever met, on this bbs, the other aussie Clive, earlier Dijk Cheese? We also had an aussie who called himself Anonymus some 10-11 years back. Clive is
very often into Ecumenical, if you should feel the need for som aussie.chat.  :lol:
dont mind him, he doesn't speak aussie.

Anonymus? Perhaps mooafeena. He lives in brisbane I think.

How'd you remember them all?  Write them down somewhere, save ticket stubs, ...?  I honestly couldn't tell you how many times I've seen them. Beginning in the early 90's (maybe Glen remembers, as I was most likely with him) through now, around 20ish times I'd say.

I do have some ticket stubs and flyers, mostly from the 90s, but actually I just went year by year in the most excellent tour archive and read through all the shows. It was actually surprisingly easy just going through them all, all kind of washing back over me, most with their own distinct memory or trigger of some kind. Some I remember much more clearly than others obviously, but I was able to identify them all that way, just rolling through the lists. I may have missed a couple or transposed a show or two here and there I guess but I think I got pretty close.

As anyone who has seen them (certainly anyone on this board) can likely attest, seeing the Melvins is an indescribable, awe-inspiring experience every single time. When they are at their best it's like watching a kind of magic or supernatural event happen right in front of you...with you, for you, because of you and in spite of you. Every time. Like being swallowed by some Lovecraftian beast from the depths, taken on a mystical journey, and delivered back to earth a slightly more evolved human than when the show started. So I have an emotional attachment to each of those experiences that is with me forever, and it was a really cool process going through the archive and reliving some of those moments as I did. Who I was at the shows with, who was playing bass at the time, where I was living, working, etc. Kinda neat. And in many cases there are certain overall shows or even extremely specific moments within individual shows  that are so deeply carved into my heart and brain (like this one for example: http://www.setlist.fm/setlist/melvins/2003/great-american-music-hall-san-francisco-ca-4bdedb9a.html -  'Let it All Be' into 'Green Manalishi' was more than my puny little brain could make sense of) that I firmly believe they have changed me for the better as a person.

So y'know, I'm gonna keep on catching those guys live when I can.

Only two times:

December 5, 2014 - Santiago, Chile at the Cariola Theater
December 6, 2014 - Santiago, Chile at Rockout Festival

I'm still hoping for a new south american tour... but a real tour though, seeing the band in Chile was awesome but come on, I know there are more fans in the rest of the continent.

Respect man, that's fantastic.

Did you know about Melvins at your first show in 93? Was that show what got hooked?  Or did Houdini come out and you had to see this band for yourself?

Me: 3 times. I only missed them once in 2011, so 3 out of 4 ain't bad!

Respect man, that's fantastic.

Did you know about Melvins at your first show in 93? Was that show what got hooked?  Or did Houdini come out and you had to see this band for yourself?

Me: 3 times. I only missed them once in 2011, so 3 out of 4 ain't bad!

Yes, I went specifically to see them.  First album I heard was Bullhead and I was hooked.  I remember driving an hour to get Houdini the day it came out.

I prefer to keep it exclusive, one time per tour is more than enough, you simply can't get the same kick seeimg them, if it's Groundhog Day for the 10th time. And Melvins aren't dependant on single fans catching as many gigs as possible, that ticket would have been sold anyhow.

Seeing Melvins live is the ultimate, but for me personally it would kind of destroy the experience seeing Melvins 5 more times the same tour. But I totally respect that Idle and others have another view. Just to take a band that's trailing right behind Melvins, in my book, Motorosycho, who shall play an exclusive gig in Bergen for just 350 people in september. I waited till the tickets were avaliable and was glad as hell when I made the purchase. The gig sold out in two hours. What happens some days extra is that the announce a extra gig the day before. Am I happy? No way, rather angry, because it makes it to accessible again, less unique. Some might cheer and buy an extra ticket, no way for me.

@Nizamarkwwve been at five of the same shows. I should probably know you by now.

Note: I stopped bringing friends to Melvins shows, though, as I prefer to be free to utterly embarrass myself gyrating / headbanging, or getting paranoid catatonic on edibles during their set (and also staying free to park two miles away and walk, not worry about entertaining anyone, buy or not buy merchandise, and drink or not drink at my own discretion).

My list:
Troubador x4
Echoplex
Echo
Fonda Theatre
Observatory (Orange county)
Club Nokia
Melvins Lite in Santa Barbara
King Buzzo at some Scion metal fest in Pomona
Casbah (San Diego)
