Vancouver, B.C. - Graceland

Opening with an obligatory feedback intro which gave way to crushing guitars and drums,
the Melvins showed on cuts like "Boris," "The Bit" and "Hide" why they've been considered
by many in indie circles to be three of the most underrated players on the West Coast scene
since their formation in Aberdeen, Washington in the early 80's.
Melvins drummer Dale Crover enjoys being the center of attention, literally, as his kit sits
between guitarist/vocalist Buzz Osborne and bassist Mark D at the front of the stage.
