MILWAUKEE SHOW CANCELLED
« on: September 04, 2004, 09:11:00 PM »
This is on the Ipecac site. Haven't seen it on here yet. If this is a repost I apologize.

09/03/2004  We wanted to let our friends in Milwaukee know that we are disappointed to announce that the Melvins/Trevor Dunn show at the Rave Bar has been cancelled. The Melvins found out that the opening bands were not being treated fairly and voiced their displeasure. The club decided not to change their policy. Somebody has to speak up for local openers. This is very unfortunate in that it is not the first time one of our bands has had a problem in Milwaukee. Hopefully fans in the area can make the trek to Chicago.
Also melvins is gay cuz some of their songs are just noise, i tell you this so you all don't buy albums and find out only one two songs is good on them.

Oh goddamnit!!!!! Thanks for posting, I wouldn't have even noticed otherwise. If you guys want to know about the local bands being screwed over, basically if a local band wants to play at the Rave, they have to sell a certain amount of tickets to that show, or in other words they have to pay to play there. They don't get paid for playing, and generally everyone who works there treats them like a dick. Not cool. But unfortunately there aren't too many other venues in town of that size that have national headlining tours, so we're stuck with it, although I heard the Rave is losing money, which is why they make local bands pay. Anyways, I'll try to go to the Chicago show, otherwise heads will roll  :evil:
Hail, not fail.

thats the beautiful thing about melvins being on ipecac, they can have they're own openers.  when they were on atlantic, i was in a band with a friend of buzz's and even he couldnt get us on.

when they were on the lollapalooza tour, they were driving around in a rented chevy lumina.  they hate buses.

no....  it's actually a matter of a friend of mine that just so happens to record shows all the time @ the venue they were going to be playing at - the Rave.  It would of been very easy to get that show, and I already had it set up.

At the Cameron Jamie shows there was a huge jive-ass silver behemoth of a tour bus outside. Maybe the curators shelled out for one. Or maybe they all slept in the trailer while Cameron Jamie rode up front :)
