It Might Get Loud

By: Laurie Gallardo


Earplugs are not optional for this one.

The double headliner at Mohawk tomorrow night, Tuesday Oct. 3, is over the top sick. Tokyo heavy sludge masters Boris share an explosive bill with one of the most influential bands in several things heavy, from sludge to grunge, noise to doom, Melvins. Like, what the hell?! Both of these bands in one night? Ridiculously awesome, but emphasis on the earplugs, if you’re interested in preserving whatever hearing you’ve got left, especially to witness the badassery of Boris guitarist Wata shredding into oblivion against a tower of amps. And whether you think Buzz Osborne‘s riffs remind you of Black Sabbath or Black Flag, you’re gonna need to brace yourself either way. And you just might get to witness Boris covering the very track that inspired their band’s name, so…

Doors open at 6 p.m. tomorrow for this outdoor stage event, with chaotic noise rockers Mr. Phylzzz (was informed it’s pronounced “flies”) opening the show. And don’t miss the afterparty on Mohawk’s indoor stage, featuring The Flood playing their album release show, with longtime AMM fave Bridge Farmers. Holy hell. Forget your ears. Your ribcage won’t make it.
