Got to the boardwalk about 7:15, doors weren't open yet and I heard soundchecks going on, bouncers told me I could get tickets when we get in the door. We just got off the road and hadn't eaten, so we went down the road to DQ, had shitty burgers and came back and went in. I didn't realize their was a band before big business, 'giant squid', a 4 piece with guitarer/vocaler, drummer, basser and violinist. Played well, seemed to be their 'hometown', alot of the riffs sound the same and his voice annoyed me. But not the worst band ever.

I bought all kinds of kool shit before this, saw dale out back at the fan and waved, met brian walsby and he signed my comic book/making love demo combo I bought. I got an eggnog shirt, show poster (which didn't show up till big business was due on stage), PORN CD, melvins trivia & trick book and I think that's it. Saw Tim Moss again and said hi, waiting for big business to play at the right of the stage, buzzo and dale both came out and wondered around very determined, they seemed busy but I'm pretty sure Buzz recognized me. He looked at me for a second or two and smiled all funny. I met him last year in sacramento and walked 7 or 8 blocks with him just chatting, and then in san fran too. Both times we talked for quite a bit about all kinds of silly and serious things....anyway.

Big Business played 3 new songs I think. Halfway through one of the older songs the drums were moving a bit and in the middle of the song jared was like "hey, alright, what the fuck are we doing still playing this? WE're fucking it up" and He explained that they called 'em "technical D's" in the industry.  Him and toshi started playing an older classic rock song after jared told some bad knock knock jokes. Which were as follows:
Knock Knock
WHo's there?
9-11
9-11 who?
You said you'd never forget.

(engage gay lisp)
Knock Knock
Who's there?
Panther
Panther who?
Panther, no pants, I'm going swimming
(gay lisp disengage)

then they finished the song.

Melvins came out, buzzo in a corduroy moo moo and jared with a gold foil thing on his head, a funny belt and the same goldish moo moo as new years. Same set list I read from previous shows. Started with nude with boots, then dog island. During dog Island I could tell buzz was lookin right at me for quite a while. I sang along with a lot of the songs, and he kept looking at me and he made my fiance feel like he was kinda creepy. Sweet. She wanted to move so he would stop looking at us. He kept coming right in front of us on the stage almost like he was showing us the riffs. Weird.
I cannot believe this man is not coked out, he is out of his goddamn mind onstage.
Also, I've never anyone act anything like that unless they were coked to the hilt, but I digest....

They Did play EYE FLYS!!!
FUCK MY BALLS!!
As soon as the bass line started I freaked the fuck out. A lot of people looked confused for the first 3 minutes of it. I'm not sure if this was before or after honey bucket.

They played honey bucket and then went into another song that I knew but couldn't put my finger on the name. When they started play the hawk/rat faced/you've never been right (in whichever order they are) I told my fiance these would be the last songs. Nope

As soon as it was over, buzz was tuning up still. "here it comes" I thought.
Then they did the star spangled banner, better than they did on new year's I thought. Then they played a fucked up weird version of "my generation" with only coady and dale singing in really weird voices. Then they played boris. It was fucking awesome

Buzz played and sang it WAY differently than I've ever heard. The ending of it was really drawn out, sang high pitched and inflected really weird by both buzz and jared while coady and dale cuddled and walked off the stage. I would've hung out and harrassed them, but I had a 2 hour drive back to chico and I've been sleeping like 4 hours a night all week. I think that's it.
So, I took no pictures cuz you're not allowed off of the "boardwalk" in front of the bar. I'll try to post a picture of the poster if you fuckos are interested.

Oh yeah, and I tried to get the set list, got told not to go onstage, went to Moss at the Backstage door and told him I'd give him $5 if he grabbed it for me and he said he couldn't leave the door, so I told him "let me go get it" and he said "if you go up there then everyone will and steal shit"

So, whatever.

Toshi sang a lot, his playing was way more prevalent and it was good shit. The capacity of the place was 200 and it did not sell out. How the fuck do they make any money?

were you the youngen with the "kitty petting" nirvana shirt right in front of buzz?? If so, I was right behind you, me and my old lady.

They had damn near every melvins CD in print at the merchandise booth, most fantomas stuff, PORN cds, 4 different posters (most of which were signed) new big business shirt, a couple new melvins shirts (bloody faces and the satan face just like new years), the trivia/riddle book, comic book/demo packages, walsby was selling original art pages of his comic books for $20. They had the eggnog and houdini shirts. I think that may be it. Oh, and the tour III cd from BB that I didn't get. I already spent $60 on stuff and was trying not to blow all my dough....came close though....
New big business shirt looked kinda like mushrooms/trees with the roots going down and spelling big business in weird colors. Pretty psychedelic, I thought.

Hey, my bro actually recorded this show, came out pretty good too, wasn't no cheap recorder.  I'm sure he'll post it here.  Oh and about Giant Squid, they're a great band, singer kinda sounds like Serj Tankian. 

Great set list though as you can see from the above post, they played a lot of old mixed in with the new.  I've been to the Boardwalk before, once for the Jelvins and another time when Pigs of the Roman Empire just came out.  Great venue might I add. 

Any of y'all go to the Slim's show in SanFran?  2 nights in a row of the melvins and my ears are still ringing, Jesus Christ.
On my dick you shall sit.

Nice reply, almost looks like a black Christ.

Sorry no reviews, I pretty sure though same setlist.  2nd night I was pretty worn out, driving to Sacramento and all the previous night.  Orangeville isn't to fond of pot smokers.  I was smokin' a roach and bouncer was like "you better put that out, cops drive by all the time, Kotton Mouth Kings played here and the place was practically radded" end quote.  Cops ain't got nuttin' to do out there but to bust some stoners, I love San Francisco.

I could tell we were destined to meet that night, two pairs of eyes connecting in a sea of eyes.  It was kismet.

As soon as the bass line started I freaked the fuck out. I mean, shit, the floors were melting.  LITERALLY! A lot of people looked confused for the first 3 minutes of it. What the fuck, don't judge me!  I'm not sure if this was before or after honey bucket.

They played honey bucket and then  I told my fiance these bugs are going to eat my insides. Nope

As soon as it was over, buzz was tuning up still. "here it comes" I thought.  I've been very good, wink wink, so give it to me.
Then they did the star spangled banner, better than they did on new year's I thought. Then they played a fucked up weird version of "my generation" with only coady and dale singing in really weird voices. Then they played boris. It was fucking awesome.

Oh and about Giant Squid, they're a great band, singer kinda sounds like Serj Tankian.

Did you have to google his name to find out the spelling of his name? :)

Actually no, I remember seeing it somewhere, that's a cool name though, I'd sport it.  Kinda like Seven or Soda from Seinfeld, if you've seen the show.

About the audio recording, I'll have to get on me bro to put it up here, he's also got the Modesto show, and San Francisco (this one didn't come out as well though), Cheerio.
