Melvins Lite, Tweak Bird

When: Wed., Oct. 10, 9 p.m. 2012

Next year, Buzz Osborne and Dale Crover will inevitably find a goofy and incredible way in which to celebrate the 30th year of the Melvins. They deserve the coronation, too; one of the most restless, exploratory and influential bands ever in heavy music, the Melvins are a model for how to turn a very long run into a consistently interesting adventure. Rather than burn out or fade away, Crover and Osborne consistently find new ways to inspire and intrigue. To wit, this North Carolina stop comes after the midpoint of their (hitherto successful) attempt to be the first band ever to play each of the 50 United States and Washington, D.C., in only 51 days. And if being part of history alone doesn't lure you, perhaps the Melvins Lite lineup featuring only Osborne, Crover and upright bassist Trevor Dunn will; for better and worse, their trio record earlier this year rollicked with the usual Melvins esprit of sudden tangents and mercurial successes. With Tweak Bird. —Grayson Currin
