Rock & Pop, Seasonal Special Happenings

King Buzzo/Emma Ruth Rundle/100,000 Leagues Under My Nutsack

When: Thu., July 3, 9 p.m. 2014

For 30 years, the Melvins have been one of the noisiest trios out there. But now singer-guitarist Buzz Osborne has gone in a different direction on his solo debut, This Machine Kills Artists. The acoustic songs show a different side of Osborne, who sings in a soft-yet-menacing voice on the album’s 17 tracks. For his live show, which he says involves a good amount of interaction with the audience, he’ll play a few Melvins songs in addition to the tracks from This Machine Kills Artists. "I’ve done about 27 shows total," he says. "I’m getting used to it. I’m still not 100 percent there. I learn something new every night." One thing you can count on — Osborne won't be sitting on a stool while he performs. " I can’t play guitar sitting down," he says. "I play terrible sitting down so I stand up the whole time. I play the same way I do in my living room. That’s it. My wife told me that. She said just play like you do at home and you’ll be fine." (Jeff Niesel)
