|I've always loved seeing Meat Puppets shows. I can't really explain what made their live shows special. It's kind of like describing parenthood to non-parents. You either get it, or you don't. Hopefully, this site will help the uninitiated bridge that gap and give the rest of us a place to remind ourselves how good it can be.
I'm trying to collect live shows here for your enjoyment. I'd like to say that the sparse and boring web-pages are because I'm trying to make everyting lynx-friendly, but it probably has more to do with my being lazy. I'll try to add shows as they become available to me.
Only the Mardi Gras Club was at 128kbps. The rest are at 192kbps or 256kbps.
