Rock & Pop, Seasonal Special Happenings

Primus/Beats Antiquee

When: Thu., May 22, 7 p.m. 2014

In the early ’90s, Primus concerts were really something to behold. The band’s major label debut, Sailing the Seas of Cheese, featured tunes such as “Jerry Was a Race Car Driver” and “Tommy the Cat,” songs that boast infectious bass lines and nasally singer Les Claypool’s distinctive voice. They really caught hold with young listeners from the skate/surf crowd who would keep the mosh pit going hard and heavy when the band played live. Eventually, jam band fans caught on to the group and it’s played to that audience ever since. As a result, the live shows aren’t as manic but rather show off the band’s incredible musicianship, particularly that of Claypool, who’s a real virtuoso on the bass. The guys aren’t playing a huge number of shows this summer — they’re performing here as they make their way to the Summer Camp Music Festival in Chillicothe, Ill. — so don’t let the opportunity to see them slip away.
