via venue website:

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, 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.


Dead C

Located in Seattle, Dead C is the founder/editor, as well as the principal writer and photographer, of Monster Fresh. Creating the site in 2007, he did so with a specific dream in mind. Unfortunately, being a muscle relaxer-fueled fever dream, it’s hard to recall all of the details.

I remember that my mom was there, but it wasn’t actually her in the dream, it was actually 70s heart throb, Jan Michael Vincent. And everything took place here, in this room… but it wasn’t actually here… it was different. The colors were washed out and, for some reason, there was a raccoon kicking it with us and it was wearing a holographic monocle.
