Amphetamine Reptile Bash '13: DIE KREUZEN, MUDHONEY, MELVINS, NEGATIVE APPROACH July 20 in Minneapolis

This show should be huge and go in the annals of legendary hardcore/alternative rock shows! Groundbreaking Minneapolis record label Amphetamine Reptile has announced their Bash '13 event taking place at Grumpy's in downtown Minneapolis on Saturday, July 20, and it's a dream bill of influential, cult bands that blazed new trails in heavy alternative rock in the 80s: Die Kreuzen, Mudhoney, Melvins, and Negative Approach.

Especially notable is the appearance of Milwaukee's Die Kreuzen. Listen to their classic 1986 album October File and you'll hear why Voivod touts Die Kreuzen as influences - this album is basically the template for all post-Killing Technology Voivod albums. Die Kreuzen played their first show since their 1992 breakup last year to a sold-out crowd at the Turner Hall Ballroom in Milwaukee, and a small handful of dates have been announced for 2013.

If you've even heard of any of these bands you'll want to be there - it promises to be epic. Advance tickets should be available soon, if not already.
