Oh yeah, another one of my favorite moments:

"Hot dogs"


Literally made me LOL. Sorry to keep trickling in little bits of information, there was a lot to take in last night.

Everything was beautiful, and nothing hurt.

Centripetal core of soul sojourn the field vibrates to absolution. I climb toward the sun to breathe the universal.

Have you seen the bridge?  I ain't seen the bridge!  Where's that confounded bridge?!

THEN: [Buzz/Dale duo]
1) "Second Coming"/"The Ballad of Dwight Fry"
2) "It's Shoved"

4) "Suicide in Progress"
5) "Oven"
6) "Black Bock"
7) "Let God Be Your Gardener"

LAST: [Buzz/Dale/Dunn]

It was good...it was real good.  Usually I don't like the sound at Webster Hall, but I think it was pretty good this time.  I got a real kick out of watching Dale play bass.  This might be the hardest I've seen him hit those drums - the bassy sound at Webster really worked well with his style.  Having him behind the set yesterday was like having an extra bassist.  Everything was just booming and blasting air into my face.  Never saw them play Hag Me or Joan of Arc before, so those were real highlights, too.

totally didn't realize it was "spread eagle beagle" in spite of enjoying houdini more than most seem to here...adding insult to injury is having that pointed out by someone who was 2 years old when I last saw them play a lot of those songs. oofa.

it's funny because I was close to the back, and it felt like most of the people around me fell into two distinct camps...the diehards and those who didn't appear to know what they were watching.

what I feared most came true at work today...I could barely turn my head without reeling from the pain.

My ears were still ringing well into today and my neck is sore as hell.

They were crushing last night, awesome show. Everything from Houdini seemed just a little slowed down and massively heavier. However the one song I wanted them to slow down, Honey Bucket, they tore through at hyperspeed. It didn't make it worse but that's probably my favorite riff of all time and I wanted to hear it and have it crush my bones. Feel bad for the people that got tossed after they sparked up, it wasn't worth missing this show for.

Dale didn't play bass at all jack ass, it was Trevor Dunn and Matt Lukin from Mudhoney. Pay attention to reality, not what is promoted.

Hopefully you're joking?  Dale was introduced as Lukin?  :oops:

1983 really sucked but I'm thinking they did that intentionally because the Melvins kind of sucked in the early 80s? Just a guess.

The bass was way too distorted and simply awful sounding in the front half of the venue (it's a big place). What the hell was going on with that (they were using house rig of SVT-CL and SVT 810. Bass was a 1975 Fender P--Kevin's bass)?

Some awesome moments with the duo (Buzz and Dale) but I wish that was longer than a few songs.

Finally, Kevin Dunn was really great but there was just something very strange and not great about the show.

Anyone else go to this?
