The Melvins w/Unsane 

When: Fri., May 4, 9 p.m. 2012
Price: $15
While we’ve already covered the evening’s headliner at length — check out Adam Gold’s awesome Melvins feature on page 49 — we’d be remiss if we didn’t give New York’s Unsane a little love. Or a lot of love, since they’re East Coast pioneers of the noisy, sludgy post-metal sound, not to mention one of our all-time favorite heavy bands. Let’s just say that we fell in love with them the second we saw the cover of their debut LP — a decapitated dude with his wig-dome bisected by a train track — in our local record store waaaaay back in ’91. And their latest, Wreck, just confirms that our love is true. Nobody combines bludgeoning noise and visceral grooves quite like these guys, and that’s why they’ve influenced an entire generation of heavy-music makers. And let’s be honest: It doesn’t get much cooler than putting railroad accidents on your record cover.
