I am in desperate need right now -- does anyone have a single ticket available for tomorrow's show?  I completely fucked the goat on this one and there are none available even on the secondary market.  Obviously, I'm willing to pay at least face.  I'll even buy you a beer.

There's one on stubhub, but it's expensive.  Worse comes to worse, try going to the venue early- sometimes tickets are released at the door.

Thanks, BHM!  I've been trying to buy it now for about an hour, but their site is having issues.  Going to keep trying, though!

Had a great time.  Ran into some old friends, got to meet Coady, Walsby and Buzz.  Even finally met Grim in person (albeit briefly) after the show.

The opening act seemed to consist of 17 year olds, two girls, two boys.  They were fine, I guess.  I was glad they only played around 20 minutes, but really have no complaints.  Stoked for them getting a gig like that at their age.

Shockingly, I'd never seen a live BB set before.  I was not disappointed.  It was a very different experience watching Jared's bass playing in BB versus what he does in the Melvins.  Totally different style.... which, I know... duh!

Melvins were ferocious.  I've not seen them as often as many of you, probably 6 or 7 times now, but this was by far the best that I've seen to date.  Buzz seemed legitimately pissed off -- in a good way -- and while Jared didn't do much bantering, his usual sense of humor was definitely still on display.  Watching Coady and Dale play together is ALWAYS a treat.

After the show, while Idle was doing his rockstar thing, I hung outside that's when I met Buzz and Coady (I introduced myself to Walsby before the show).  All three were very kind, took multiple pictures with me and yada yada.  I left with a great impression of each of them.  Idle took me backstage a short while later, but Jared and Dale were both occupied, so I didn't get an introduction.

Fucking fantastic night, all in all.  Except now I'm hungover.

Where are you, grim and ether?

I was around. Kind of being pulled around by a few social groups. Good times had by all, but sad I missed the always pleasant face of Uncy-D!

Went with my girlfriend, picked up her dad from his pad in the lower Haight. Met up with one of my best friends who turned me on to the Melvins back in 2002. Also came across an old guitar center co-worker of mine who I turned onto the Melvins back in 2005 or so.

As states, the opening band was a band called Continuum. Some of their grandparents were ahead of me in the box office line to get their guest list passes. I saw some of said grandparents near the end of the night, and they did not look all too happy. 17 year old getting early exposure - the female vocalist/guitar player was desperately out of tune, but their 17 year old friends didn't seem to mind. Not too sure on how they scored this gig, but good on 'em.

Big Business as a two piece. I never thought I'd see the day again! They killed it. In all honesty, I haven't paid much attention to them since Mind The Drift, and I didn't recognize anything from their set. I bought their last album on clear vinyl at the end of the night. Jared made a joke near the end of the set about how happy he was to be back at the fantastic great American music hall, and how he was looking forward to them tearing it down to build condos. If anyone is familiar with the current state of San Francisco, and how the classic haunts are being demolished to build outrageously priced condos for Silicon Valley tech bros, you'd get how depressingly hilarious this was for us.

The Melvins - what can I say. I've seen this band a solid 20 times in the last 13 years, and rarely to they disappoint. The setlist was no frills and had a ton of songs that I'm always happy to hear live, but nothing outta the ordinary.

The Bit
Youth of America
A History of Bad Men
A Civilized Worm
At the Stake (I was pretty pumped on this one)

Not in that order, plus several others. yadda yadda yadda. Buzz was all over the stage. Seriously high energy and louder than normal. Good fucking times! My girlfriends dad has impeccable taste in music and hadn't seen the melvs since the early 90's. He was blown away by Coady as a drummer during the Big Biz set, and even more so by the combo with Dale.

I handn't seen this lineup in years - they still fucking got it.
