Win Tickets to Saturday's Melvins + Mudhoney Show

We need to hear from you.
Today during our spring member drive, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

A pretty damn good cd came out on Tuesday, the soundtrack to a film about Kurt Cobain called About a Son. The soundtrack has no music from Cobain or any of his bands, instead it's mostly music he was listening to from bands he was fans of.

Very few bands had as much influence on Kurt than the Melvins, and very few bands had as much college radio street cred the years before Nirvana broke than Mudhoney.

Both the Melvins and Mudhoney are on About a Son, and Saturday the two bands play together at the Henry Fonda. We want you to go.
