Melvins played House of Vans w/Baroness and Honky

The Melvins leveled House of Vans last night. Not catching a breath for a second, Buzz Osborne, Dale Crover, Jeff Pinkus and Coady Willis ripped through an earsplitting 72min set. No breaks, no announcements, just vicious sonic ferocity. During the band’s last song, Gibby Haynes from the Butthole Surfers joined in on vocals. Video of that as well clips of opening acts Baroness and Honky (members Melvins/Butthole Surfers) and more upcoming dates at House of Vans are below.
