Bash 13

Price: $35

When: Ended 07/20/13

Where: Grumpy's Bar & Grill - Downtown

After a well-received Amphetamine/Reptile label anniversary in 2010, Grumpy’s Downtown is bringing back more rarely seen bands of the ’80s-’90s pre-grunge punk/indie-rock era for another party in the parking lot, this one dubbed Bash 13. Best-known is the third-best band of Seattle’s Sub Pop scene, Mudhoney, playing its first Twin Cities gig in a decade in support of its first new album in five years. The headliner, though, is Milwaukee’s arty noise-punks Die Kreuzen, cult favorites from the Touch & Go label who haven’t played here in two decades. Even rarer, Detroit hardcore heroes Negative Approach are scheduled to deliver their first-ever Minneapolis gig, part of a sporadic run of reunions that started back in 2006. And then there are Seattle freak champs the Melvins, who seem to play their pal Tom Hazelmyer’s bar any chance they can get. Also performing are Austin punks Honky, led by ex-Butthole Surfers bassist Jeff Pinkus, plus Gay Witch Abortion and a new band of ex-Cows called Hepa/Titus. Chris Riemenschneider
