Formed in 1980, Arizona trio Meat Puppets have directly or indirectly influenced seemingly every indie rock band of the past three decades. Famously covered by Nirvana (guesting during the Unplugged performance), they flirted with breaking into mainstream success in the early 90s, but quickly retreated back to the underground. Despite a couple hiatuses, they’ve remained consistently productive over the years.

Adding to the Latin flavor of the night, openers Making Movies are one of the fastest rising Latin bands. Based out of Kansas City, their rhythmic psychedelia has caught the ears of legends like Los Lobos and Ozomatli.
“The first time I saw Christopher Paul Stelling his face was red and his eyes were wide, singing as if he were about to burst apart, as if he had so much to tell us and too little time, as if his mind was racing faster than his tongue could keep up with. He’s a singer with the spirit of Woody Guthrie both deep within and showing on his sleeve. Stelling has a new collection of songs he has titled Itinerant Arias, which he says “sounds a lot better than ‘travelin’ songs,'” but that’s exactly what they are. Songs which have in common no single origin, or sense of place. Like found objects, overheard stories, lost melodies.”
If you’re living in Santa Fe and haven’t heard Future Scars yet, you must be sleeping. The local trio made their debut last year and immediately jumped to the top of the heap of best local bands. See for yourself.
