Melvins are a rock band that formed in Montesano, Washington, United States in 1983. In the early days of their career their dark, heavy, oppressively slow sound made them innovators of genres like sludge, grunge, and doom metal. Melvins’ music is influenced by Flipper, Black Flag’s My War-era hardcore punk and Black Sabbath-style heavy metal, but their idiosyncratic approach, bizarre sense of humor, and experimentation make neat categorization difficult. Singer/guitarist Buzz Osborne (aka “King Buzzo”) and drummer Dale Crover are constant members while several bass guitarists have cycled through the group.
On Wednesday, June 10, the Melvins will be performing a headlining concert in Austin at Mohawk. They will be joined by touring mates Le Butcherettes. The best part? We have two tickets to giveaway to one of our lucky Red River Noise readers.
