Seattle’s Mudhoney are coming to Columbus tonight after a couple of week’s worth of rumors about whether or not the show would go on. Cafe Bourbon St., the birthplace of all things Shitgaze, has been mysteriously closed since late-May.
But the show will indeed happen as planned. It looks like whatever was keeping Bourbon St.’s doors locked has been resolved, and it appears that Extreme Weiners will open sometime this week. Mudhoney may be the highest-profile group ever to perform in the tiny confines of the Washington Beach dive, considering their long and sturdy track record of solid releases and excellent live sets. The band are touring on the heels of their eighth full-length, The Lucky Ones. The Cheater Slicks and Grafton will open.
