According to a recent blog post on Myspace:
That’s right! The Melvins celebrate their Silver Anniversary this year! Lots of fun and surprises are coming! To kick off the festivities, the boys are doing some select shows performing the Houdini record in it’s entirety. One Mr. Trevor Dunn will be handling the bass duties while the Big Business boys are touring their new album “Mind The Drift”. Also along for the ride is original drummer Mike Dillard. The boys will play songs from the Mangled Demos record with Dale Crover playing the role of Matt Lukin! Check the show section for dates.
Date’s announced so far include:
- 15 May 2009 Webster Hall NYC, New York
- 16 May 2009 Paradise Boston, Massachusetts
- 18 May 2009 Double Door Chicago, Illinois
- 20 May 2009 Emo’s Austin, Texas
I’d be surprised if there weren’t any more shows to be announced.
