Redd Kross and Melvins show the kids how its done at the Social

Hard-touring sludge godfathers Melvins (also the unwilling and unwitting grandfathers of grunge) and glam-punk bratfathers Redd Kross (who scandalized the early L.A. punk scene by wearing bellbottoms and long hair) are two of the more uncompromising godheads of the alternative-music pantheon, with a healthy disdain for nostalgia and resting on laurels. The twosome are on a co-headlining tour wherein the bands are swapping members back and forth for some pretty unique configurations: Kross bassist Steve McDonald will be playing in Melvins, and fearsome Melvins drummer Dale Crover will sit in with Redd Kross nightly. Supergroup city.
