Soul Asylum and Meat Puppets
- The legacy of Soul Asylum: forged in the fires of Minneapolis in 1981, the band went triple platinum with their 1993 album, Grave Diggers Union, and came around full circle with their 2012 release, Delayed Reaction
- How AllMusic.com’s Mark Deming described that album: “their best in ages.”
- Their sound in a nutshell: an ocean of rough yet infectious guitar riffs propelled by the rust-bucket vocals of Dave Pirner
- Proof of Pirner’s Minneapolis cred: that’s him on the live-recorded opening of The Replacements EP Stink, yelling at police offers who are breaking up a party
- What you might hear in the show: new tracks such as “Let’s All Kill Each Other” and “Into the Light” along with the eminently hummable “Runaway Train”
- The Meat Puppets in our words: sneering punk and country rock that resembles an amalgamation of ZZ Top, Neil Young, and Hüsker Dü
- The Meat Puppets in their words: “real blown-out folk music,” which frontman Curt Kirkwoood said about their latest album, Rat Farm
