When they joined Nirvana on the 'MTV Unplugged' stage nearly 20 years ago, Meat Puppets already had a good 10 years under their belts. Fifteen albums later, the Kirkwood brothers -- singer-guitarist Curt and bassist Cris, backed by drummer Shandon Sahm -- are still making the rounds, playing a mix of classics and tunes from their latest album, 'Rat Farm.' Last night (April 3), the alt-rock legends stopped in New York City for the first of two Mercury Lounge shows, and Diffuser.fm was there to capture the moment. Check out our exclusive photos below.
