The Melvins counting on Denver to help them earn a spot in the Guinness World Records book

The Melvins lite, a contradiction in terms if ever there was one.

On Wednesday, September 12, you'll have a chance to become part of history and help the Melvins weasel their way into the Guinness World Records book, which they hope to do by playing shows in all fifty states plus one in the District of Columbia in just 51 days. One can only imagine what sparked the idea for this devious adventure. Other than the obvious notoriety, we can only presume the dudes are gluttons for punishment. "We figured it was time for us to do something REALLY crazy," says King Buzzo himself. Whatever the case, the Melvins (the lite version, featuring Buzz Osborne, Dale Crover and Trevor Dunn) are slated to make a pass through the Mile High City on the eighth stop of the tour at the Bluebird Theater.
