It’s long been an accepted fact with the rock and metal communities that Mike Patton, best known as the wild yet soulful vocalist with Faith No More, can do no wrong. His inclusion on the Fantomas, Tomahawk and Dead Cross projects, not to mention his collaborations with The Dillinger Escape Plan, Jean-Claude Vannier and beatboxer Rahzel, all resulted in pure gold. He’s always been one to look forwards and come up with something nobody was expecting. However, he’s going right back to the beginning this year for a series of shows with his first band, Mr. Bungle. Patton is joined by fellow original members Trey Spruance and Trevor Dunn, plus Slayer/Dead Cross drummer Dave Lombardo and Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian. Expect mayhem.

Mr. Bungle plays with Ho99o9 and Hirax (Wednesday), Cattle Decapitation and Neil Hamburger (Thursday), and Melvins and Cunts (Friday) at 9 p.m. on Wednesday, February 5, Thursday, February 6 and Friday, February 7 at the Fonda.
