AmRep announces Bash 13 set times, Melvins record release show
Those of you gearing up for Saturday's big Amphetamine Reptile Bash 13 at Grumpy's can now plan out the musical mayhem of your day, as (tentative) set times for the all-day event have just been released. The event starts at noon, with music scheduled to start at 2 p.m., but bear in mind that when the lines grow long, admittance becomes a slow process.
And, for you fans who can't get enough Melvins, be aware that the band is hosting a record release party indoors at Grumpy's tonight in addition to their planned outdoor Saturday set.
So if you want to see the Melvins' set at 2 p.m., it's highly recommended that you show up early -- plus, you can nab some of AmRep's exclusive vinyl they have had pressed specifically for Bash 13 before the music starts.
Honky and Hepa/Titus will also be doing double duty along with Melvins tonight, as the group's new tribute to Venom 7-inch will be made available to fans. The 7-inch features the Melvins covering two Venom classics, "Warhead" and "In League With Satan," while being joined by Scott Kelly. At this point, some tickets still remain for the Melvins record release party -- but act fast or risk being left out of the fun.
As far as Saturday goes, Bash 13 is set to be one of the unquestionable musical parties of the summer, with Mudhoney making their first local appearance in over a decade, Die Kreuzen playing Minneapolis for the first time in over 20 years, and Negative Approach making their first ever live local appearance.
Those bands are joined on the bill by Honky, Gay Witch Abortion, and Hepa/Titus, which will reunite former Cows members' Kevin Rutmanis and Shannon Selberg. Tickets to Bash 13 are still available here.
Tentative set times for Bash 13 are as follows:
Doors at Noon
2 p.m. Melvins
4:15 Negative Approach
5:20 Gay Witch Abortion
9:00 Die Kreuzen
