The Melvins Turning 25, Announce Four Special Shows
THE MELVINS are turning twenty five and marking the occasion with a group of celebratory shows set for mid-May in New York, Boston, Chicago and Austin.
The four shows will be an “evening with” the band and feature a first set with the original line-up of Buzz Osborne, Dale Crover (on bass) and original drummer Mike Dillard. For the second set Buzz, Dale and Trevor Dunn (bass player for Fantomas, MadLove, Mr. Bungle) will perform Houdini in its entirety.
“We’re living on borrowed time.” explained Buzz. “When the Melvins started I never expected to actually be ALIVE for 25 more years.”
