The Scientists got their start in 1978, walking the line between power pop and punk rock before morphing into something darker and murkier in the ’80s. Either way, they’ve always done their own thing. You could point to grunge as a possible byproduct of the Australian band and their countrymen Cosmic Psychos, who might’ve otherwise slipped through the cracks. Now the Scientists are embarking on their first-ever US tour, with two Pacific Northwest dates opening for Mudhoney. Some like to say rock is dead, but tonight it’s very much alive and kicking.
