Primus is playing TWO SETS at The Wiltern on Saturday promoting their new album Green Naugahyde, which dropped on September 13th. Les Claypool and the boys are bringing their, well, “eclectic” metal show to the City of Angels for the last official date of their “An Evening with Primus” tour (which, for those in the Bay, still includes a festival appearance at the always-outlandish Oddity Fair in Berkeley next Saturday). If you haven’t had the Primus experience yet, or just want to take another ride on Les Claypool’s quirky, irreverent roller coaster of a show, get down to Wilshire and Western on Saturday night. Serious metal with a sense of humor (and two platinum records), who can argue with that?
Green Naugahyde, which is the band’s first studio album of new material since Antipop in 1999, was the result of original drummer Jay Lane’s recent return to the Primus lineup. Inspired to hit the road with its new (old) drummer, the band headlined 3 separate tours this year and played every major festival in the states, including a set at Bonnaroo. The new material on Green Naugahyde was written while on tour earlier this year.
So, in short, after an 11-year studio hiatus, Primus is back making records. Let’s encourage this people!
