Still haven't gotten tickets, but I'm definitely going. Might be rollin' solo and getting dinner upstairs it's looking like. Can't believe I'm having no luck getting anyone to commit to rollin' with so far. Won't stop me from attending though.

Yeah. I usually skip opening bands, but (seeing as how this is Kevin Rutmanis' band) I might have to try to get there on time.

Merch was sparse, show was amazing.  One of the best Melvin's shows I've seen, I'm surprised.  I hope someone can post the set list. Fucking amazing !

Yep. Same set list. I'll post a video of Let Me Roll It/Set Me Straight/DCH/Sky Pup in a little bit. Great show but a little shorter than I expected (as they played shortened versions of more than a few of the songs). As good of a show as it was, I gotta say that I prefer the Big Business configuration though.

....and yes, merchandise was very sparse compared to what I am used to. Not a single Melvins shirt to be seen. Just some posters from what I could tell. Almost bought the autographed Mad magazine/devil face one, but wasn't a big fan of the artwork. If some of the other available posters where autographed I would have bought one for sure. I'm sure they'll be restocked soon; just another reason to make the journey to see at least one of their shows on the upcoming tour.

Between $25 and $50 I believe. The autographed one was $30.

Nice video,  the Wings cover was a huge surprise, had no idea they were covering it.  I thought it was great seeing them as a trio again, fresh switch after the run of so many shows w/BB.

I did buy gray the Hepa/Titis Gerber T shirt.  I enjoyed seeing.hearing Kevin play.  The last time was w/ the Melvins in Chicago.  I was hoping he'd still have a bell on his bass, wishful thinking.

Slim's is a cool venue too.  Nice set up.  Sort of reminded me of the High Noon Saloon in Madison, but wider.
