I assume in JA the week of the show all school/work is canceled


A superintendent in Florida says missing school to attend Taylor Swift's concert is not an excused absence: "I understand I am the Anti-Hero here."

Watched an interesting documentary on a UK Soul/Disco group called The Real Thing who in 1976 had a huge chart topping single with "You to Me Are Everything" they had many firsts in the UK at time.  Anyways, one of the reasons it never took off in the US beyond being a minor hiy, because even in 1976 US artists were still covering UK songs and in this case it was a horrible version by Frankie Vallie that help sink it.

Straight from the cowpunk Wiki:

Cowpunk (or country punk) is a subgenre of punk rock that began in the United Kingdom and Southern California in the late 1970s and early 1980s. It combines punk rock or new wave with country, folk, and blues in its sound, lyrical subject matter, attitude, and style. Examples include Social Distortion, The Gun Club, The Long Ryders, Dash Rip Rock, Violent Femmes, The Blasters, Mojo Nixon, Meat Puppets, The Beat Farmers, Rubber Rodeo, Rank and File, and Jason and the Scorchers. Many of the musicians in this scene subsequently became associated with alternative country, roots rock or Americana.

I'm not sure. But they are Exhibit A for bands whose sound and lyrics didn't age well for me.

At one time, I listened to most of the artists on that list. I still have the CD's, but I never listen to any of them  (in part because my wife wouldn't put up with me playing it, but also in part to I'm just not into that any more.)

From the Meat Puppets Wiki:

 Meat Puppets II turned the band into one of the leading bands on SST Records, and along with the Violent Femmes, the Gun Club and others, helped establish the genre called "cow punk".

To be fair, I am more familiar with their 90s output. (I donít think Iíve ever heard their stuff from the 80s.) So perhaps there was a shift in their sound, but none of the 90s stuff made me think cowpunk.
