Primus (3D)

MATTHEW SINGER
7 pm., Saturday May 25 | $42.50-$53.
 
[BASS MUSIC] No other band has ever sounded like Primus. No other band could sound like Primus, really. After all, there are few musicians in the world approaching Les Claypool’s virtuosity as a bassist, and even fewer with his creative sensibility. Whether or not many bands actually want to sound like Primus is another issue. Unrelentingly quirky, claymation thrash funk that appeals equally to jam-band dorks and alt-metal dirtbags has never exactly been in vogue. Whatever, though. At some point, after 30 years of carving your own exclusive niche and then barricading yourself inside it, aggressive uniqueness becomes not just a badge of honor but an armor against criticism. Apparently, it also allows you to tour with your own “3D enhanced” road show—which, you got to admit, is pretty awesome.
