Meat Puppets Hit the Road with Dead Confederate

Text
Have you ever seen a meat puppet singing, dancing, suckling a woman's breast and doing cocaine? It's pretty bizarre. But if Pete, the singing figurine made of sausages, short rib and lamb isn't up your alley, then you can always check out the Meat Puppets, who have announced upcoming dates in continuing support of their latest album, Sewn Together. Either way, we won't judge.

After opening for Stone Temple Pilots and showing up on ABC Amplified, the brothers Meat are back on the road. The Meat Puppets will begin their trip Sept. 5 in Tuscon, Ariz. and will be joined by the atmospheric rock of Athens, Georgians Dead Confederate on Sept. 16.
