Three hours before doors open and it’s raining.

Outdoor venue. Fuck.

Melvins Show Reviews / Sept 10 2017 - Paper Tiger - San Antonio, TX

The setlist was about the same as what everyone has said already. I'm surprised they opened with Sacrifice though. Not sure why I'm surprised. I guess because I've never considered it as an "opener" kind of song.

I was able to get right up in front of Steve for the whole show. Wow, does he have energy or what!

A drunk girl was crowd surfing and ended up on center stage with her skirt hiked up to reveal part of her panties. Buzz and Steve kept playing while a stagehand escorted her off the stage. If Pinkus were up there, he would have pushed her back into the crowd like he did to a gal on one previous occasion.

A huge mosh pit started up during Edgar the Elephant for some reason. Go figure.

I loved how Spotlights came out to join the Melvins for the final number. I think it was Hung Bunny/Roman Dog Bird. It's cool how they sandwiched the show with Lysol tracks.

Overall a stellar performance as always.

Of course it was a tremendous show as always! The venue was PACKED. The outdoor stage made it fun, and it was the first time that I had seen flashing colored lights on the stage in sync with the Melvins' set. (OK, so maybe it belonged to Napalm Death. Who cares.  :wink:)

The set list was awesome. My only complain is that it included nothing from Houdini. Oh well. They played two songs from that album last summer when I saw them, so no big deal. It WAS cool to hear "Eye Flys" as the opener, though.

All songs are highlights at Melvins shows, but the ones from last night included "Sesame Street Meat," which really got the mosh pit activated. What a great down-and-dirty song. Other highlights included the KISS cover "Deuce;" the new track, "The Decay of Lying" from War Pussy; and of course "Revolve" toward the end of the set; that one got the crowd the most riled up.

Steve McDonald looked awesome up there, totally hamming it up and fitting right in. Someone once mentioned that they were so glad to finally see a long-haired bassist. They were right! By the way, if you've never heard any stuff from his band Redd Kross, I definitely recommend going over to YouTube and checking some out.

Until next time, Melvins!

I'm new here. I'm wondering is there's an existing thread for users to post self-shot Melvins video links/footage from shows. Thank you.
