Primus has proven itself to be on of the most prolific and enigmatic bands in modern music. Their sonic concoction of chaotic syncopation and Les Claypool’s godlike work on the bass guitar still finds new fans with each passing generation. Primus has given the world characters such as “John the Fisherman,” “Sgt. Baker” and “Tommy the Cat.” The locals last got their Primus fix at Hangout Fest 2011. However, the band’s new tour promises to be one of the most memorable performances from Primus ever seen.
The original Primus lineup will be joined by The Fungi Ensemble for an evening that will feature crowd favorites and another sugary surprise. Primus will turn the venue into Willy Wonka’s factory, and the band will perform songs from the film “Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory.” The show will also include Primus chocolate bars for purchase and some of the most psychotic looking Oompa Loompas ever seen.
