Show Preview: Melvins and Green River @ Showbox Fri & Sat

Both the Melvins and Green River have long been on my regret list – bands I thought I’d never see live. Last summer’s excellent SP20 festival allowed me to cross Green River off that list and tomorrow night will see my Melvins dream realized at their 25th anniversary show at Showbox at the Market. I’m so excited for this show I can barely contain myself. I hope you have your tickets as Friday is sold out, though a few for Saturday’s all ages night may still be available. They will be performing Houdini in its entirety and I can’t freaking wait.

Alex Crick saw the Melvins years ago (at RKCNDY?) and shared these fantastic photos with us.





Did I mention Green River is also on the bill? I’ve been waiting and hoping I’d get to see them again – I snapped these photos at November’s Showbox show.



I have serious pre-show denial and am relieved to be skipping Sasquatch this year, as I’ll likely need the entire weekend to recover from what I expect to be an incredible night.
