Doors at 7pm
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.
Porcupine
Porcupine
La Crosse, Wi trio Porcupine organically forges its singular brand of Rock'n'Roll reminiscent of the late-90s alternative without compromise. Un-yielded by what's trendy, Casey Virock (guitars/vocals) with Dave Reinders (bass) and Ian Prince (drums) derive some of their inspiration from 70's classic rock and 60's British psychedelica, resulting in a Swervedriver meets Queens of The Stone Age type sound.

Porcupine was founded in early 2006 by Casey Virock and Ex-Space Bike Co-Member Davey Reinders. Hoping to spring board off their recent success from Space Bike, including opening slots for Frank Black, The Descendants, The Melvins, The Jesus Lizard and Everclear, Porcupine began touring and playing the Midwest. Over the last 6 years Porcupine has continued to build momentum. They have released two full length LP's, two split 7" singles, a record charting at #115 in the CMJ top 200, opening slots with the Meat Puppets and Mission of Burma and songs featured on T.V. shows, such as, The Real World, Best Ink, and The Challenge.

Ian Prince has been supplying the backbone for top-notch indie bands like Story of the Sea, Houston and Kid Dakota for well over a decade. Possessing the perfect combination of play-for-the-song sensibility and an "all or nothing" attitude, Prince is an undeniable powerhouse on the drums. Porcupine is set to release a new six song EP on Riot House Records in early December.
