Meat Puppets and Cass McCombs brought their co-headlining tour to NYC over the weekend for shows at Rough Trade on Halloween and November 1. Meat Puppets headlined the first night and they switched it up on night 2. I caught the Meat Puppets set on the second night, which had them sounding excellent. They played plenty of the seminal Meat Puppets II (which turned 30 this year) and tons of other crowd pleasers. As they tend to, they stretched a handful of songs out into their Crazy Horse-style jams, and really locked into them. We don’t have the exact setlist for the second night, but you can check out the night 1 setlist and a video below. If you were there, did you pick up the bands’ new split 7″?

The Meat Puppets/Cass McCombs tour continues, hitting Austin for a BrooklynVegan-presented FFF Nites show with Meat Puppets’ old ’80s SST pals Dinosaur Jr on Saturday (11/8) at ACL Live. Like all FFF Nites shows, it’s free with a Fun Fun Fun Fest wristband. Flyer below.

Our metal blog Invisible Oranges is also presenting a FFF Nites show with Pallbearer, Eagle Glaw, Vattnet Viskar and Wrekmeister Harmonies that night at Elysium. Check out the full FFF and FFF Nites schedule here.
