Meat Puppets bring their legendary blend of psych, punk and blues to Will's Pub


  • Jaime Butler
Meat Puppets are one of the stickiest bands to ever ooze out of the underground. The SST-launched band has been furiously experimenting for more than 30 years with immersive blends of punk, folk, psych and blues over a thrilling rock base that gives the listener a feast to chew on, kinda like that weird Willy Wonka three-course-dinner chewing gum. Developing their own guitar technique that is wild to observe live, Meat Puppets are still an awe-inspiring act, performing classics from their vast and critically acclaimed canon that includes near-perfect spins from the ’80s like Up on the Sun, Huevos and II, all of which monstrously overshadow modern releases that mostly cannot rival the band’s longstanding ingenuity. Get up close if your ears can take it; this one’s gonna get loud and weird, and it’s a bonus warp we get to see this show in a small club.
