Anyone who is remotely familiar with the band Melvins knows that discussions of the band never involve the word, acoustic. In fact, in the band's 30+ year career, I'm not sure if an acoustic guitar has ever been used on a Melvins' record. So, I guess Melvins' frontman, King Buzzo, must consider the idea of making acoustic music something of a challenge for himself -- one that he needed to meet before retiring from music.
Well, that retirement date is likely a long ways off, but Buzz has decided to meet the challenge head on. He has recently released a new solo EP of acoustic music, and embarked on his first ever solo tour. That tour stops in Omaha tonight with a performance at The Waiting Room. Tickets are available at the door for $13. Opening is Gerald Lee Jr.
Here is a clip from the first night of the tour so you can get a taste of the new sound.
