DOWN COVER VAN HALEN, PROVE THAT REDNECKS LOVE COCK ROCK AND STONER METAL IN EQUAL MEASURES

250

This just in: rednecks do not actually have red necks. I guess “mudnecks” or “farmer’s tans” isn’t as catchy.

So. Familial obligations kept me away from the Down/Melvins show here in NYC this past Friday night, and apparently I missed quite a party. Which isn’t shocking – I’ve never seen Down play a bad show, and actually having a support act (as opposed to the hour of Kiss and Skynyrd videos they played before going on the last time I saw them), let alone one as awesome as Melvins, probably just made the entire affair that much more rockin’. Plus, members of Skid Row and God Forbid were on hand. FML.

Amongst the apparent highlights: Down covering Van Halen’s “Ain’t Talkin’ Bout Love.” I kinda wish that Phil Anselmo had tried to do a DLR mid-air split or that Kirk Windstein had slid across the stage on his knees or something, but whatevs.
