Melvins Show Reviews / Re: Headliner's, Louisville, KY 8/11/2017

also, just learning about this drummer/ laptop situation from Spotlights is disappointing. I'm hearing that some shows they have a drummer, others, they don't. This is your chance to impress a good fan base. don't do the laptop thing.  :lol:

The drummer (Chris) had prior commitments.  He'll be back with them soon I think.

Oh really? That's good to know. I liked Spotlights, but I wasn't keen on the whole drum machine thing.

Thanks for the review! I would be blown away to hear Sacrifice as an opener! They might have done this during the Porn/Big Biz/Melvins shows I went to, it's ringing bells.

There are too few reviews of this tour here. Thanks for making the effort, Topaz.

Hey, my pleasure! Yeah, I would like to see more reviews here as well.

The song that brought down the house was The Bit. Excellent track. Also, I was expecting them to play Revolve, but it didn't happen.

I wish I could have seen them in the Big Biz days. This was only my 4th time to see the Melvins live.

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.

album is good. not sure if i prefer this than the new Melvins,probably not. back to Dale solo, the album title might be my favourite song

Yeah the title track is my favorite, along with I Found the Way Out. They both have a mellow Pink Floyd feel to them.

San Antonio just got several days of rain. No big deal. Can't wait for the Sept. 10th show!

Only 7 of the 20 tracks are "proper" songs, but that's not necessarily a bad thing.

Great job, Dale!

I got my CD in the mail yesterday. It came with a magnet and a thank you note. How sweet.

Does anyone know why it shipped so early? I didn't expect it before the 8/4 release date.

I'm liking the Death album more and more. It took me about 10 listens to finally appreciate each song. Euthanasia is my favorite at this point.

Of the three released songs, I like Little Brother the best. It's so catchy..

I think "Death" is just OK. My favorite track is What's Wrong With You?
"Love" isn't for me I guess.

What do they do when it rains?

I'm not sure, although the stage is covered. There's a small standing area under the terrace, but it wouldn't be adequate.
