Melissa Auf der Maur


A film, a comic, other assorted media accoutrements: Out of Our Minds, Melissa Auf der Maur’s second and long-time-coming 2010 solo album, came with everything but a rebate for Shake Weights. An ambitious if largely hook-free alchemy of ’90s alt posturing, Viking barbarism, and Danzig guest shots, the album nevertheless established former Hole bassist “MAdM” (natch) as a strong artist for a new age of dream metal nerds. She is your queen. Note that animal sacrifices are prohibited at Highline Ballroom. With the Shining Twins and Leah Siegel.
