MEAT PUPPETS RETURN TO THE STAGE WITH ORIGINAL DRUMMER, EXPANDED LINE-UP

For close to 40 years, legendary desert rockers the Meat Puppets have carved a unique niche for themselves with an unmistakable blend of cosmic country and and acid-tinged punk rock filtered through their own unique sensibility. Along the way they've earned the admiration of critics, fans and their peers. Now, the brothers Curt Kirkwood (guitar/vocals) and Cris Kirkwood (bass/vocals) are back with original drummer Derrick Bostrom.



Absent behind the kit for over twenty years, Bostrom rejoined the band last year for a one-off reunion show in honor of their induction into the Arizona Music and Entertainment Hall of Fame. The chemistry was undeniable, so in May of this year, Bostrom agreed to play with the band on an ongoing basis.



Joining the original trio are long-time second guitarist (and full-time Curt offspring) Elmo Kirkwood and Ron Stabinsky (Peter Evans Quartet, Mostly Other People Do The Killing) on keyboards.



Says Derrick, "It's so great to be to play with the band again; It feels like we picked up right where we left off."



"It's incredible how it's worked out," say Cris. "Suddenly, It's the three of us again. And when you add Elmo and Ron to the mix, the band is taking it to the next level."



The Meat Puppets might evolve but their sound is unique – you'll never mistake them for anyone else. They will never go out of style.

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.
