Primus at Bonnaroo (more by Dana (Distortion) Yavin)
Primus will hit the road in celebration of Green Naugahyde, not the leather alternative, but the band's new LP which is due on 9/13. Each night of their coast to coast trek will feature a pair of sets by the playful/dark bass-heavy trio.
Last year their NYC show was at the Williamsburg Waterfront.Their stop in NYC this year, on 9/30, is back at Roseland Ballroom where they've played at least twice before in the past ten years. Tickets recently went back on presale for NYC and all dates, with a presale code of "hennepin". Tickets for NYC go on regular sale at 10AM on Saturday (7/23).
The new LP features bassist/madman Les Claypool and long-time collaborator Larry LaLonde, with drummer Jay Lane who was in an earlier incarnation of Primus (and later the Primus side-project Sausage). You can preorder that LP in various incarnations (CD/LP/shirt/skatedeck) now.
