Still bros after all these years: The Melvins are touring behind their 30th anniversary

The Melvins, Honky 

When: Sun., Aug. 4, 9 p.m. 2013
Price: $16-18
This is the 30th anniversary tour of the Melvins, the weirdo, quasi-playful doom lords who've built their own enormous franchise of influence and cult status during the last three decades. But don't tell them that: With multiple lineup shifts, innumerable collaborations and the prevailing sense that they've never explored anything quite enough, the Melvins remain one of the most restless hard rock outfits in America, unturning every rock only to break it apart. Jeff Pinkus of the Butthole Surfers fills in for Jared Warren on bass; his band, Honky, also opens. —Grayson Currin
