Halloween with PRIMUS

Brooklyn Steel – Brooklyn, NY – 31 October 2017

Primus are currently on the Ambushing The Storm Tour in support of their newly released album The Desaturating Seven, which features the first original material that Les Claypool and Larry “Ler” LaLonde have released with drummer Tim “Herb” Alexander since Tales From The Punchbowl in 1995.  As fans anxiously waited with the chants of “Primus Sucks”, the band would finally take the stage. Les Claypool pointed out some of the colorful costumes in the crowd, saying things like, “Look at that handsome fella” who was dressed like a classic Les Claypool himself, and “it’s nice to see Buckethead at the show tonight”.

As fans anxiously waited with the chants of “Primus Sucks”, the band would finally take the stage. Les Claypool pointed out some of the colorful costumes in the crowd, saying things like, “Look at that handsome fella” who was dressed like a classic Les Claypool himself, and “it’s nice to see Buckethead at the show tonight”.

The show would start off with “American Life”, and as always Primus would keep the show as animated as their songs with large LED screens across the entire backdrop of the stage, with psychedelic imagery and a bright colorful light show that went along with each song perfectly.

The band continued to play a career-spanning 11-song set with notable favorites such as “Lee Van Cleef”, “My Name Is Mud”, and the start of “Too Many Puppies” that would lead into “Sgt. Baker” then “Hello Skinny” and going back to finish up “Too Many Puppies”.

Primus also played The Desaturating Seven in its entirety along with more psychedelic images this time coming from the 1978 children’s book, “The Rainbow Goblins”, which was the inspiration for the album. Primus would finally close the show with a two-song encore of “Those Damned Blue-Collar Tweekers” and “Tommy The Cat”, both of which are from the 1991 album Sailing The Sea Of Cheese.
