(the) Melvins @ the 2007 Festival international - Victoriaville
« on: February 10, 2007, 02:56:55 PM »
Just got word from my newsletter that the Melvins will be playing in Victoriaville the weekend of May 17th/18th - don't know which night yet.  Four years ago they were up there w/ the Big Band - a friend was able to make it up there for the show.
I'm looking into this one, but it seems unlikely for various reasons at this point - but I'm not 100% sure.  But also playing at the festivial are these few notable mentions:  Anthony Braxton (2 shows!)- John Zorn - Acid Mothers Gong - Merzbow - Keiji Haino ; to mention a few.
So who's making the trip??

Not so easy for me. No car. I've been looking at bus routes. Either I'm stupid or I'll have to take two buses. One to montreal and than another one to victoriaville. Knowing my friends don't won't want to pay 40-60$ for a bus ride to see "just" the melvins.

Right now I'm hoping for some other canadian dates closer to home.

Haha Maarten knows how long i've been waiting for this : )
Not to get your hopes up but I'm might be able to pick you up if your somewhat on the way and are willing to pitch a bit (ass gas or grass).  let me know.. I live in Kingston... so if you can find a route between Kingston and Victoriaville that goes by your place let me know and we will make it happen.

Im happy. Finally a concert experience is around the bend.

According to this you won't be going anywhere near me(ottawa). But, since you'll be driving by montreal. I could take the bus to montreal and get picked up there?

I'd be more than willing to pitch in for gas money and grass. Fuck, I'll ride in the trunk if I have to.  :P

Ya man i can meet you in Montreal. Sounds like we got things resolved a little bit.  Fuck this should be a good trip. I would only be going with 1 or 2 other ppl so there is room for you no worries.
When do the tickets go on sale?

SWEET! Thanks!(even though everything's not set in stone)

I have no idea when the tickets go on sale but the site says the first announcements will be made tomorrow. Once we get more info we'll work out all the details.
