This may deserve its own topic, but it belongs here at the very least.

Have fun, everyone. I'm on my own mini vacation, and I'm still wanting to check the interwebs on my phone. The various facebook groups are tickeling me pink right now!

I'm curious why Joe and Lori Turned down their involvement? Whether they had positive or negative experiences to document regardless.

The only person that I was curious about was Tim Moss. I know tons of footage was recorded and cut down to two hours, but was he interviewed at all? DSS woulda been cool too, but If I remember right, he was booted from the crew for making crude remarks about Mackie or something.

Melvins Show Reviews / July 9 2017 - Goldfield in Sacramento
« on: July 10, 2017, 03:24:39 PM »
It's that wonderful annual evening where I get to see this band of lovable weirdos...

If I'm only catching one gig on a tour, and I have the chance between seeing the Melvins in Sacramento, or the Great American Music Hall in SF, I'd usually choose the latter. My Mondays at work are far easier than my Tuesdays, and my girlfriend and I have a few friends in Sacramento that we hadn't seen in awhile, so we decided to head north to make a weekend out of it. We told one of our friends that we were making this voyage, and she decided to come with. It's always a pleasure taking the uninitiated to a Melvins gig!

After spending a day on the Sacramento River, we made our way to Goldfield. I'd never been there - it's like a redneck all-American bar with hunting paraphernalia everywhere, and the American flag painted on the wall behind the stage. The stage is pretty fuckin' small, and the place was packed on a sweltering evening - there were sweaty bro's everywhere. Holy shit, I always forget that Sacramento is a bro epicenter! I came across Idle, gave him a brief hello, and made my way to check out Spotlights.

Spotligjhts was good. I didn't know their material at all. They kinda reminded me of the Deftones for some reason. My only complaint was that the vocals were barely in the mix. Otherwise, cool set! I'm gonna have to check out their studio work in the near future. The Melvins came on around 9:30, and killed it as usual. I'm digging this setlist - it's heavy in that early material (pun intended)! I've also gotta say that I really like Mr. McDonald's stage presence. I saw Red Kross at Burger Boogaloo last week as well, and the dude is just fun to watch... I think he brings an energy to this band that's fresh, and Buzz and Dale look like their enjoying themselves more than I've really seen in the past. Not to mention, the dude is a seriously talented bass player.

Merch is killer - There's lots of letterpress stuff out there, and a Suicide in Progress 7" that was sold for $35. I picked up the golden, signed tour copy of Love and Death for $50. I haven't even had a chance to look at it... I got home at one AM and was up at five for work. I'm gonna head home in an hour and give that puppy a spin.

My uninitiated friend is officially initiated. She dug it! Good show, y'all. As usual, you guys are in for a treat.

This Bash is going to be perfect, I should stop viewing this thread as i'm quite sure I won't be making it.

You should keep viewing as further inspiration. I'm half tempted to make the flight to the midwest!

Was "this close" to flying down to visit Bay Area buds and ring in NYE in style at the show ...

Sometimes you make poor life choices ...

Was two years away from falling in love with thais band and seeing them in San Francisco countless times thereafter... I feel yer pain.

Already confirmed... It's gonna be dale. Lombardo is on tour with  Suicidal Tendencies or something? I'm actually kinda bummed I bought Primus tickets for the Berkeley show. If I hadn't I'd probably spring for this at this point...

Less diner food on tour. I feel spoiled living in the bay area with a plethora of healthy food options. I can imagine touring through much of the midwest that it could be hard to find good eats on the side of the highway.
