I have a similar feeling about Schnab's question of why anyone would want to see them multiple times on the same tour. Why not get as much as you can of a really good thing?

Does anyone ever ask why some people watch the same basketball team play 80+ times in a season?

Could you imagine the outrage if a football fan admitted to watching only one match a year of their favorite club? (American to English translator engaged!)

my only comment to that would be that MELVINS play the same set list every night.

That's fair.  It doesn't negate how much ass they kick every show. 

I'm not suggesting people should be going all dead head or phish fan and follow them around, but catching a couple of close shows ain't so bad either.  Lucky we got a couple of tours this year with different set lists, on top of it.

That is what I have been noticing - I can somehow catch 2-3 different tours a year now, each with a different setlist (with the exception of the "hits").

If they did a different show every night - I would be following them around like a dead head. I've been loving how they are stretching out on Your Blessened - almost a jam band for like 1 minute!!!!

Melvins definitely not playing tomorrow in St. Louis.  :(

))))((((

Just been looking on the map, 2 days for Coady to fly to Portland do a gig then fly back to Indianapolis is quite a trek! He'll be dead on his feet by the end of this tour. The worrier in me thinks of all the things that could go wrong in a jaunt like that.

It wouldn't take much for that to fall apart real quick. Just a major flight delay or cancellation would be all that it would take.

I have to applaud Coady for trying to make all this work, though. Dude is built different for sure.

I'll be in Indy on Monday.

Hey buddy, sorry I didn't see this post until now. Would've been nice to say hi in person again.

Melvins were great. I pretty much knew what to expect with the set list but it was awesome nonetheless. Coady was a monster. Steven repeated the news about Dale's successful surgery and the crowd cheered.  Now I know what everybody's talking about with Buzz at the end of Boris.  It was pretty magical.  I didn't go too crazy on the merch.  I got Helen's shirt and I picked up one of the limited Electo-Bulls (37/46).  My first Uber driver of the night asked what was going on and when I told him it got us on the subject of loud music and we ended up figuring out that he had seen my old band multiple times back in the mid/late 90s.

With all that said, my night actually turned out kind of lame. I went with a friend who can often be a Jekyll/Hyde drinker. He's a really nice guy, always wants people to be happy and have fun but once he gets to that one drink too many stage, he gets ultra obnoxious.  When I got to his house before the show, I pretty quickly realized he had been slamming vodka/Red Bull and shots of Fireball. So, while Jekyll was who got in the Uber, by the time we got downtown, it was Hyde who got out.  I basically had to hide from him during the Melvins set but it pretty much took the wind out of my sails and I left him there after just a few Boris songs.  My fault, I knew better, but I probably won't go to many shows with him again.


Sweeeeeeet!

I was in Portland today for a memorial gathering for an old friend.  Just got multiple texts that Big Biz played the parking lot at Lardo.  Wish I could have made it work to go see them...
