Glad you enjoyed the show :)

P.S: I got a pedal full of fuzz on my floor, as well as my bass sitting comfy on the futon. Recorded some goofy stuff over Chris's tonight xD

I saw them in the spring - they didn't play any of the stuff they played on this tour but they were sooooo awesome and louder than anything I had ever heard before.

Duuuude I hope you get your dolls signed! It was amazing, I was right in front like O.O. They played a bunch of new songs that I didn't know, but it was great nonetheless. They also made fun of Jim Morrison because apparently he got arrested in New Haven for screwing a cop?

I hope I do too! Thankfully the venue is small and me and the other 5 people I'm going with are quite possibly the only Melvins fans in the entire state, so I don't think I'm being irrational to think it's possible! :P
And that's awesome, I can't imagine they're variating the setlist too much on this tour since it's such a behemoth so it should be sweet. I hope they tell that story, I've never heard that before. :lol:

I thought me and my sister would be the only people there when I saw them here in Stockholm. Turned out the place was crowded haha!
Like, where are all those people when they're not there? :? Really hope you get those dolls signed by the way, do your best!
when the whole thing comes crashing down, don't ask me why, don't ask me why

That's what I always think when going to online grunge websites. The internet makes it seem like there are oh so many grungers around, but then real life makes it seem like you are the only one.

SO THAT WAS THEIR NAME????? Omg, I actually really liked them, what little I heard. I got there a little late, so I missed most of their stuff, but the last two songs they played were great. Good energy, good sound, and not to mention a-friggen-dorable!

I'm totally checking out more of their music now. I like it a lawwwt. They've got such a full sound despite being only a 2 man band. I dig.
