Primal Scream played Webster Hall, Chicago (setlist) & SXSW (where Little Steven implied they are drug addicts)

Primal Scream @ The Metro in Chicago – March 22, 2009 (theres no way home)
Primal Scream

Steven Van Zandt plays many roles: Guitarist in the E Street Band. Tough-talking club owner Silvio Dante in “The Sopranos.” Host of syndicated radio show “Little Steven’s Underground Garage.”

But early on Friday, March 20, in the Austin Convention Center, he assumed the role of music industry elder statesman and philosopher during the South By Southwest Music and Media Conference.

Van Zandt spoke and answered audience questions in a convention center conference room….

… When a booking agent informed Van Zandt that the British band Primal Scream was not physically capable of doing a 20-show tour he hoped to organize, he did not hide his disgust.

“C’mon. (The E Street Band) does 20 shows a month. You want to be a drug addict? Go be a drug addict. Don’t waste my time.”
