With half their lineup tour-dogging behind the new Big Business LP, New York gets a rare glimpse of Melvins Classic, returning to play 1993's Houdini in its entirety. Not necessarily their most influential or even best album, Houdini is undoubtedly their most iconicwhat with the major label backing, Beavis & Butt-Head ribbing, and Cobain producer credit. Opening the show will be the Melvins again, this time with embryo-era drummer Mike Dillard, revisiting their sloppy days in 1983 as a fresh-faced hardcore band.
