Melvins and Redd Kross took Alex’s Bar by storm, giving fans a show that will be long remembered.
Alex’s Bar in Long Beach is one of the best places to see any band, let alone some of the most well-known names in punk.
Check out some of the Instagram posts from the crowded house of punk:
Opening for the bands was Toshi Kasai who has become a favorite touring mate of the Melvins.
Check out more Instagram coverage in the hands of the fans. Tonight the bands move on to play a sold-out gig in Los Angeles.

Date night in the LBC. Melvins and Redd Kross. Proto sludge/grunge and amped up glam. Haven’t seen Redd Kross since ‘87, first time for Melvins. So much fun! . First Frame: Buzz Osborne – Melvins . Second Frame: Jeff & Steven MacDonald – Redd Kross . Third Frame: Gina, Iggy, and Lou. . First time at Alex’s Bar. Great venue – small, friendly staff, stellar jukebox between sets (X, The Damned, Cheap Trick, Buzzcocks, The Nerves, The Soft Boys, Television, etc.) . . #melvins #reddkross #buzzosborne #jeffmacdonald #stevenmacdonald #punkrock #grunge #glam #datenight #livemusic #livemusicisthebestmedicine
