Meat Puppets, Weeks, Bustello 

When: Tue., Sept. 20, 8:45 p.m. 2011
Price: $13-15

The Meat Puppets' recent LP Lollipop shows a much different band than the one that ascended to indie fame in the '80s. Living up to the sweetness inherent in the album's name, this is a more sugary version of the ambitiously dirty rock 'n' roll band. They still add heaping helpings of grungy distortion, and their songs still drive along with powerful momentum, but the melodies are sweeter, inflected with reggae and pop, and the instrumentation wanders into fetching fills that accentuate these influences. It's an appealing mix, one that rock fans of all colors can appreciate. Tickets to the 8:45 p.m. show, which features opening acts the Weeks and Bustello, are $13 in advance, $15 day of show; —Jordan Lawrence
