When: Sun., July 6, 8:30 p.m. 2014
King Buzzo, aka Roger “Buzz” Osbourne, is the sole remaining founding member of seminal punk band the Melvins. On his new solo album, This Machine Kills Artists, Osbourne strips down, musically speaking, with a mostly acoustic record. Though quieter than his work with the Melvins, songs such as “Dark Brown Teeth,” “Drunken Baby” and “How I Became Offensive” still exude the winking, churlish charm and humor for which he’s become known. King Buzzo plays the Higher Ground Showcase Lounge in South Burlington this Sunday, July 6, with songwriter Emma Ruth Rundle.
