Tickets are on sale now at all ticketswest outlets and the Cuthbert Amphitheater but we've got your tickets all week long!
Primus has been called everything from “thrash funk” (as the band blends funk-style bass technique with thrash influenced guitar riffs and songs tempos), to “alternative rock” to “the Freak Brothers set to music.” Les Claypool himself once described their music as “psychedelic polka.” Thanks to the diversity of their sound they have been able to gain fans from nearly all rock subgenres.
Primus is the only band to have their own ID3 genre tag in Winamp. They are characterized by their irreverent approach to music — they release their records on Claypool’s Prawn Song Records label, a parody of Led Zeppelin’s Swan Song, and their catchphrase was, for several years, “Primus Sucks!”. In 2003 the band dropped that catchphrase, as well as Tim Alexander’s nickname “Herb”.
