Melvins
Melvins
The Melvins were formed in Montessano, Washington in 1983 by Buzz Osborne, Matt Lukin and Mike Dillard. Lukin and Dillard left the band and drummer Dale Crover stepped in shortly thereafter. Osborne and Crover have been the Melvins' mainstays throughout their 29 year metamorphosis.

To date the band has released 27 original albums, numerous live full-lengths and far too many to count singles and rarities. They've partnered with Jello Biafra, Lustmord and Fantomas for individual releases and toured the world many times over (side note: the band was in both Christchurch and Tokyo for their 2011 earthquakes).

With the release of (A) Senile Animal in 2006, the Melvins became a four-piece, essentially annexing Jared Warren and Coady Willis of Big Business. The Melvins, already known for their shattering mix of punk-meets-metal (and often referred to by an assortment of tags including sludge and grunge), were now louder and more bombastic than ever leading to a resurgence in the band's popularity and a run of three original full-lengths. Never ones for complacency, Buzz and Dale have since created Melvins Lite, a line-up partnering the pair with Mr. Bungle's Trevor Dunn and most recently teamed with Butthole Surfers' JD Pinkus and Paul Leary for the 2014 release, Hold It In.
Spotlights
Spotlights
Spotlights is the Brooklyn-based married couple of Mario and Sarah
Quintero, both formerly of Sleep Lady, whose 2012 album *So Long Lonely
Ghost* was produced by Aaron Harris of Isis.

In Spotlights, the Quinteros summon a supreme sound, equally heavy and
dreamy. A tar-pit sludge-rock foundation is blanketed by layers of
shimmering shoegaze. Their debut full length *Tidals *was released on
Crowquill Records in the spring of 2016 as a follow up to the synth laden,
doom-pop EP, *Demonstration. Tidals'* songs rock hard and memorably,
bringing to mind hints of bands, from Failure to My Bloody Valentine to
Godflesh to Smashing Pumpkins and beyond.

Spotlights has been handpicked by Deftones to support the band on two weeks
of its summer U.S. tour for 2016. Followed up by a second national run in
September with If These Trees Could Talk
