The Melvins Celebrate 30 Years With Boise Show

Wednesday, Aug. 14 at Neurolux


We live in a time of brevity. We transmit our thoughts in 140 characters. We don't chuckle or guffaw; we LOL. Everything is fleeting. Sticking with something for a day is laudable. Sticking with something for 30 years exhibits a tenacity and resolve that should be celebrated.

The Melvins' swampy distorted sound has been oozing across the rock music landscape for the past three decades, playing around 100 shows a year. The seminal post-punk band is celebrating with a 30th-anniversary tour this year, and this is a party you don't want to miss.

With Honky, 8 p.m., , $17 adv., $20 door. Neurolux, 111 N. 11th St.,
