MEAT PUPPETS announce two special shows in Melbourne + Cris Kirkwood Art Exhibition

MEAT PUPPETS ANNOUNCE TWO SPECIAL SHOWS IN MELBOURNE!



• BAND SET TO PERFORM ICONIC ‘NIRVANA; MTV UNPLUGGED’ ACOUSTIC FAVOURITES ‘OH ME’, ‘PLATEAU’ & ‘LAKE OF FIRE’ + CRIS KIRKWOOD ART EXHIBITION AT 27TH MAY SHOW!


By popular demand, Meat Puppets have once again extended their upcoming Australian tour, adding two shows at Melbourne’s Ding Dong Lounge on Tuesday 27th May and Wednesday 28th May.

At the first show (27th), Meat Puppets will play a short ACOUSTIC set that will include much-loved Puppets songs ‘Oh Me’, ‘Lake of Fire’ and ‘Plateau’ (best known from the performance with Nirvana, during the band’s iconic MTV Unplugged set in 1993).

Cris Kirkwood has been creating art for decades, whether it is musical art or visions on canvas, his unique eye view has a texture all it's own. Cris will bring a 30+ piece collection of his Art to exhibit at Ding Dong Lounge on Tuesday 27th May. There will also be an opportunity to meet Meat Puppets at a ‘Meet-n-greet' at the venue - an extremely rare opportunity to see all the different layers that make up Meat Puppets! Tickets only available on the door - for just $20.00

The following night, the band will bring the full Meat Puppets live experience to the stage of Ding Dong Lounge on Wednesday 28th May. With shows already announced at Melbourne and Sydney’s Cherryrock’014 and in Hobart, Adelaide, Brisbane and Perth, these will be Meat Puppets first Australian shows in over 20 years!

With a career that has spanned four decades, the Meat Puppets have witnessed countless musical movements and fads come and go, but despite it all, have stuck to their guns and retained a dedicated fan base. Along the way, the Puppets have made admirers out of some of rock's most renowned names - most obviously Kurt Cobain, who personally invited the Puppets to appear on Nirvana's classic performance, MTV Unplugged in New York - and have amassed a canon of timeless songs ("Plateau," "Lake of Fire," "Up on the Sun," "Backwater," etc.). Since 1981, the Meat Puppets have been crafting their sun-drenched, cosmic country and punk rock. With classic albums like Meat Puppets II, Up on the Sun, and Too High to Die, the band has acquired a diehard group of admirers including some of rock's most renowned artists (Nirvana, Pavement, Soundgarden).

Meat Puppets are Curt Kirkwood and bassist Cris Kirkwood with drummer Shandon Sahm (son of Doug Sahm) and new addition on second guitar, Curt’s son, Elmo Kirkwood.
