Win free tickets to Primus this Friday. ChiIL Out
has 4 pairs! This show is all ages, so bring your punk
kin and further their rock education, or make it a night
Enter here to win through noon on Friday 10-14.
Spend your Friday with the inimitable Les Claypool and Primus!
You've gotta love a band full of consummate musicians with a
sense of humor. Case in point...They have released
some of their records on Claypool's Prawn Song
Records label, the title of which is a parody of Led
Zeppelin's Swan Song label.
With their witty irreverence, these are serious musicians who make
for a seriously fun and funny show. We've seen
Primus (and Les Claypool in many other configurations) for years,
and they do not disappoint.
We'll be giving away 4 pairs of tickets this Friday at
noon. Winners names will be on the guest list at the door.
Valid ID required. Enter at the bottom of this post
for your chance to win. We never share, sell, spam or post
contact info on bathroom walls. Only the winners' first name
and last initial will be published.
An Evening with Primus 2011 Tour
Primus is an American rock band formed in
1984, currently composed of guitarist Larry "Ler"
LaLonde, vocalist and bassist Les Claypool, and drummer Jay
Lane.Primus originally formed with Claypool, Todd Huth and
Lane, with the latter two departing the band before Primus's debut
release Suck on This, being replaced by drummer Tim "Herb"
Alexander and Larry LaLonde.
During this lineup, the band released four studio
albums: Frizzle Fry, featuring "John the Fisherman",
Sailing the Seas of Cheese, featuring "Jerry Was a Race Car Driver"
and "Tommy the Cat", Pork Soda featuring "My Name Is Mud" and Tales
from the Punchbowl, featuring their most commercially successful
single, "Wynona's Big Brown Beaver". In 1996, Alexander
left Primus and was replaced by Bryan "Brain" Mantia, with whom
they would later release Brown Album and Antipop before placing
Primus on hiatus in 2000. They were also known for creating the
original theme for "South Park" in 1997.
2003, Claypool and LaLonde reunited with Tim Alexander and released
a DVD/EP, Animals Should Not Try to Act Like People, before touring
from 2003 through 2004. In 2010, it was announced that one of the
band's earliest drummers Jay Lane had rejoined the band for a
cross-country tour, and they later digitally released the free June
2010 Rehearsal EP. An eighth album, titled Green
Naugahyde was just released.
