Primus Brought The Cheese to Grand Rapids Saturday Night
Saturday night's crowd might have seemed a little weird if you don't know anything about Primus, since they were chanting "Primus Sucks" throughout the night. Or, as Les described in a story about Stewart Copeland, maybe they were chanting "Primus Up".
The evening kicked off with Insects vs Robots, a cool jam band with some long songs, and a cool feel. Check them out when you have a chance.
Then, after a brief break, Primus hit the stage with "American Life", and extended that song to about 10 or so minutes. The crowd loved it. They went on to play songs from throughout their career, including a new song they've been working on, called "Seven" (at least for now). They didn't play "Tommy the Cat", but did play "Sgt Baker", "Jerry Was a Racecar Driver", "Wynona's Big Brown Beaver", and tons more.
If you missed going to the show because it sold out fast, we've got lots of video for you here!
