CBGB Festival + Soundcheck (WNYC) Present: The Meat Puppets
Indie rock originals on a killer stage for this iconic festival
The Meat Puppets don’t do fads. They’ve been around since the ‘80s and relentlessly keep making music the way they wanna be making music. This punk attitude is probably what Kurt Cobain took note of when he asked the group to be part of his über famous MTV Unplugged performance back in ’93. Since then, the mainstream took note of the alt rockers and the legions of fans haven’t quit since. Joined by Enemy Planes, come check out what gives these guys their lasting power. General admission. Over 21s only.
"Their early works were wholeheartedly punk, with vocals so feral in their delivery they were often indecipherable, but ultimately humorous and ingenious once discovered."
