Live Concert Photos: Melvins @ High Noon Saloon (6.26.10)

The Melvins Buzz Osborne 2 @ The High Noon Saloon

It was just another Saturday night at the High Noon Saloon—just another Saturday night with Totimoshi and sonic legends The Melvins blowing the doors down, that is!

Every beat felt like a gunshot; every sludge chord was a tribute to pointed anger and recklessness. The pit seethed with the benevolent brutality we all know and love.  These guys still got it after nearly 30 years!  Was there even any doubt?

Check out photos from the show below.

Dr Dog: Not Sold Out Of Live Photos

I saw a lot of LP’s going into the door at the sold out Dr. Dog show last Friday; people standing outside, asking strangers for extra tickets. Once inside, the room began to shrink rapidly as my excitement rose. A real fan base and standing room only; the makings of a great show.

Flaming Lips

“How about a cheer for all those bad girls/And all the boys that play that rock and roll/They love it like you love Jesus/It does the same thing to their souls” — Tom Petty

Music festivals can be compared to something of a religious exchange.  Really.  Just think about it.  How much of yourself are you willing to sacrifice to your music gods in return for a blissful, out-of-this-world live spectacle?  Would you fry yourself under the unforgiving midsummer sun for hours on end?  Would you brave the untold terrors of the port-a-pottys (yikes), or the critical gazes of ever-so-ironic hipster brigade?
