This show was originally scheduled for the Pearl Room but was then moved to Austin's Fuel Room, which worked out for me as Austin's is only about an hour from where I live and Pearl Room is almost three hours away. It sounds like the Pearl Room has closed down, which was the reason for the move. Evil Army was originally supposed to open the show but they didn't play for some reason, so Weedeater opened, who were okay. Next up the Melvins played and they just slayed. They played for about an hour and played a bunch of stuff off of Nude with Boots along with a couple off of Pigs of the Roman Empire and a sweet Devo cover. We didn't stick around to hear Down as there's just no way they would have been able to top that, plus I'm not really a Down fan.
