Little did the ‘90s grunge godfather Melvins know that “Stop Moving To Florida” would ring truer now than it did upon its spring 2018 release (frontman King Buzzo, however, might actually like this so-called free state).

The group’s latest album Bad Mood Rising came from out of nowhere, and includes a 14-minute rock epic, heavy vocals, and special guest guitarist Dylan Carlson of Earth.

After years rocking the now-shuttered Ybor Orpheum, Melvins plays its first show at the new North Tampa location on Thursday, Oct. 13.

Texas freak-rock band We Are The Asteroid opens the gig.
