Meat Puppets Announce 2017 West Coast Tour Headlining March 14-25

Until last September, things were relatively quiet in Meat Puppets 2016 world. Then Riotfest popped up on their schedule. There are not too many “firsts” left for the Puppets to experience, but out of the blue, Curt was invited to meet with 1st, 2nd, and 3rd graders (!!) at Suder Montessori Magnet School in Chicago.

Suder teacher Rachel Jacobson was the match maker:

“I have put forth the idea that Curt Kirkwood is the coolest person that walks
the earth and my kids have bought in…showing up will confirm it all.”

When the kids dropped a video along with the invite, https://splice.gopro.com/v?id=YpQbL5q1L, that did it, and the band got to cut loose with the kids singing along.

Tears were had.

Following that outing, the band has started to revisit the folk and singer-song writer nuggets Curt put out in 2005 on his solo masterpiece, Snow, as well as similarly veined tracks from Rat Farm (“Sometimes Blue”).

In March 2017, the Puppets are headed back to the west coast for a two week tour.
The Modern Era
The Modern Era
In a world of millions of bands lost in the rat race, one question remains. "Why should we give a damn about one more sorry ass rock band?" Well friends, here's your answer. After a year long stint in a cold dark basement, members Jack Swagger, Ben Pelowski and Nick Pelowski arose to find a music industry in turmoil. Savage acts of mass music crimes being committed at every radio dial. Is there any hope? Well everyone, one thing is for sure, The Modern Era is not here to save rock and roll, they're here to usher in a new golden age of music by first destroying all filler, one unforgivable top 20 song at a time. We are coming to your town, so get ready, because when we do, you will remember the name.
