I'm gonna try not to prattle on, so here goes:
Got to jackson hole a little before 7, went to a campsite to pitch a tent (huh huh) and get over to th venue in time for doors @ 8. Th bar/show area was wide open with a lot of people watching Dale hit drums and check his cool headset mic. Then Coady, Jared, and Buzz. For a sound check they played civilized worm and it sounds a lot like my dreams might sound if they had a sound. Talked to Brian Walsby @ th merch and bought some fun stuff (bigbiz tour ep III, mangled demos, your disease spread quick comic, and an original walsby "I killed kurdt kobain" poster kind of like th one in th manchild 3 comic. no melvins shirts! no vinyl except purge of dissidents 7", only women's small size bigbiz shirts!) . My friend "jer-bear" and I took our loot out to th car and started pounding beers in th parking lot like junior high kids. Saw Dale on th sidewalk at one point and said "good show tonight" or something equally stupid. ANYWAY th show, no morningstar although I saw Tim Moss wandering th place. Big Business plays wonderfully, and wonderfully loud, but not too loud. Much better than when I saw them in SLC. Focused, energetic, tight, happy. Some new songs with a little different feel than I was used to. Short but satisfying. I really like toshi in th band personally. MELVINS, what can I say? Same set list of course, nude with boots is first (not th kicking machine) . I actually saw buzz smile a couple of times. You all must know it was so so so so good, their pa sounded clear as a bell and not too loud, perfect! Buzz said something along th lines of "everytime I step up to th mic whoever's doing lights shines one right in my face, stop it please it's really annoying." I've seen the melvins 4 times (twice in boise, once in portland, and this very show I'm describing) and that's th only thing he's ever said at any of them. Anyway lots of jock punks were beating th shit out of each other in front so I stood as close as I could without getting their testicles all over me. Best show I've seen in a long time, best melvins show of th few I've seen, sublime, trancendent, so good it hurt. Sorry to get long winded. Was anyone else from this forum there? Somehow I doubt it.
What's that? Not me. Fuck that, I'm a cat.

Campground?  Were they playing a KOA?    :)

That's awesome, camping within distance of the Melvins!! Nice review. I am the same way. I always get as close as I can to the band without getting smeared with the drunken testicles of those who most often don't know Melvins from shinola.

I was there too bro.  Traveled in from Utah.  Great show, couldnt believe they had no Melvins shirts...sounds like they are doing great with selling merchandise though, so thats good.  I got one of those posters also from walsby.  My brother got the first one he had up and then he said he'd draw me another one.  It was way cool, got to watch him do it and he told me the story of what that was all about.  Real cool guy, my poster just had buzz though with no Dale.  He asked if I wanted him on there but there was alot of people starting to show up and I didnt want to keep him from making more bucks.  I stayed upstairs so that was the best way to stay away from all those punks you spoke of:)  Really enjoyed it, one of the best Melvins shows ive seen.  I also enjoy Toshi being in Big Biz.  They sounded way better than ive ever heard them.  Stuck around after the show and got some drum sticks and Coadys gloves from Dale.  Felt like a complete stalker fan but it was great, Awesome guys all around no doubt.  Toshi was unbelievably friendly as others have said before on here.  As you said Buzz actually said something which shocked me.  Im not used to hearing him say anything and he did indeed seem to be enjoying himself up there way more than usual.  At one point during the show some guy tried to give him his hat and Buzz just gave him this look like what the F?  Classic.

How was th sound up there? Were you one of th 3 or 4 people I saw videoing th show?

Sounded pretty good upstairs also.  I went downstairs a few times to get beer and it sounded better down there though.  I did video tape it.  Sound quality isnt as good as it sounded that night of course but not too bad, alot of bass so that just made the camera audio rattle to some extent.
