Wednesday, July 2nd - KING BUZZO Live, solo acoustic tour
"What I'm doing, it's not folk music, it's not heavy metal. It's 'molk,' how 'bout that?" says King Buzzo Osborne, frontman for avant-sludge institution the Melvins.

After a deafening 30 years of pioneering lurch-rock, frenzied double-drummer insanity and abrasive noise tangents, Osborne is finally ready to walk a road he's never traveled — going unplugged and acoustic. But don't worry, first taste "Dark Brown Teeth" still has the doomy, ill-angled, Beefheartian edge his band is renown for. "My wife said, 'It sounds like the Melvins,'" he says. "Well, which would make sense because I write 99 percent of the material."
