Last Thursday, ANU Bar hosted a double-header gig featuring a flashback from the 90's with Helmet and Melvins - both currently touring Australia on a sort of 'greatest hits' tour. The night was filled with nostalgia and that classic 90s grungy-rock sound that in many ways has shaped the way music sounds today. Both acts were incredibly talented and polished, where all in attendance were completely immersed in the experience of the evening.
