Japanese punk/grindcore/noiserock band MELT-BANANA is back in North America for another tour, request them on the Asian Music Show and Thee Hourz ‘O Power, and check them out during their two Michigan dates:

Friday, October 25th at the Pyramid Scheme in Grand Rapids, MI (18+)
Monday, October 29th at the Crofoot Ballroom (Pike Room) in Pontiac, MI
