I was pondering that as well, but realized I'll be at the coast for a friend's birthday on Friday.
Oh well, can't see 'em every time!  :wink:

Is the Crystal Ballroom a harsh venue? I've never been there.

Its an old dance hall that's been converted into a venue.   The views from everywhere on the floor are awful, the floor itself is usually split down this odd angle for 21 and over, the sound is mediocre, and the crowds that go to shows there are usually only half interested in whats going on onstage.  If you are early enough you can stand on a bench at the wall of the venue and you might be able to see something ;)

It would be perfect for an actual ball (with its bouncy floor), but for music it is probably my least liked venue in town.

Although I did see the Melvins there once (20th anniv, with Mudhoney opening).  It was a good show, but I'd rather see them play just about anywhere else.
They probably got a pretty good offer from Sabertooth, so good on them.

It’s not horrible.  Seen Melvins there a couple times.  Once when I was seeing them there I was in line to grab a beer and all the sudden I notice I’m standing next to Krist Novoselic.  I had a few beers in me so I blurted out “I’d vote for you for lieutenant governor” (he was running up in Washington at the time).  He handed me some of his campaign materials and we talked for a few minutes.

In regard to the upcoming show...I’m just not excited about the premise of an all-day brewfest leading up to a Melvins set.  Will not be a fun crowd to be around.

totally makes sense, thanks.

btw, I just bought my tix for the Tacoma show on the 3rd and the link on the McMenamin's site is incorrectly going to a page to buy tickets for the Crystal Ballroom show on the 4th. Took a bit of digging to find the correct page for the Tacoma show, so for ease for anyone else who's looking to buy them here is the correct link:

https://www.etix.com/ticket/p/5323778/sabertooth-presentsthe-melvinshelms-alee-holy-grove-21-tacoma-mcmenamins-elks-temple

stoked to check out that new venue, sounds pretty cool. They just spent a pretty penny refurbishing it.

I wonder if 2019 is going to turn out to be a rather more "quiet" year touring wise for the band or whether they'll hit the US/European roads further on post-Summer.

Pearl Jam and Soundgarden drummer Matt Cameron is teasing a mysterious new recording project with Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins and Melvins frontman Buzz Osborne. Cameron has shared two videos on his Instagram story of the trio working on music in Sun Valley, CA. Hawkins fronted a one off Soundgarden reunion performance in Los Angeles at the ‘I Am The Highway’ Chris Cornell tribute show in Los Angeles last month. The Melvins were the first performers at the show, introduced by Soundgarden’s surviving members.

I'm up for that. Taylor Hawkins is plenty gifted. I could never quite get into his music as it was too deep an Inception thing, like he's the the Dave Grohl of the Dave Grohl band. But Buzz in a supergroup is good news.

Nice! I think they are doing a cover of "She" by KISS.

Got train tickets, hotel and show tickets for Tacoma.

Still on the fence about Portland but I’ll probably go
