I have been lucky enough to kind of document the resurrection of The Meat Puppets in various formats, stills, videos and words, over the last several years, and its been a great experience. Sometimes it's shows I planned on, sometimes it was last minute, and sometimes they seem to pop up out of nowhere. I had no idea they were the opening act until I actually saw the production schedule stapled to the wall at Stubb's.
Their set opening for Ween was probably their cleanest and strongest yet since moving to Austin, and it was great to see Shandon Sahm, son of legendary Texas musician Doug Sahm, on the drums. It certainly shows that the Puppet's have been accepted into the local music scene, which can sometimes be tough.
