Puppet revival 


8:30 p.m., Revolution. $10 adv., $12 d.o.s.


Almost two years to the day since they last came to town, the Meat Puppets are back. Who'd have thought, after a hiatus that stretched across much of the last decade, including at least a year when brothers Curt and Cris Kirkwood didn't speak, that the band would be on such steady, productive ground these days? You can't even really call it a comeback at this point. This line-up, featuring the brothers Kirkwood and replacement drummer Ted Marcus, has been at it for more than three years, touring the States and Europe and cutting two albums, both of which come close to recapturing the glory of their output in the '80s and '90s. You know, cowpunk at its finest — an infectious blend of laid-back psychedelia, desert rock and oddball, mumble-y lyrics. Locals Big Boots and the Dangerous Idiots open.
