Photos: Melvins, Le Butcherettes – Roseland Theater, 10/19/14

Alt/Doom/Sludge/Drone/Heavy institution Melvins dropped by Portland’s Roseland Theater last night as part of their Hold It In tour, promoting the album of the same name made in collaboration with Butthole Surfers bassist Jeff Pinkus. True to the band’s nature, their set was completely unique from the trio’s last few outings in recent years (frontman Buzz Osbourne also played a solo show at the Hawthorne Theater on June 18th of this year – which, despite being an acoustic affair, still managed to bring the band’s lumbering energy in full force.)

Opening the show was Guadalajara’s own Le Butcherettes, led by Teri Gender Bender – who may also be familiar to American audiences for fronting the group Bosnian Rainbows, the brainchild of one Omar Rodriguez-Lopez (the band has played Portland  twice in the last two years, first at the Star Theater on Oct. 20th, 2012 and again at Dante’s on Sept. 18th, 2013.)
