The Wiltern | Los Angeles, California
Zany groovesters Primus are coming to The Wiltern on Friday 29th December 2017 for two nights in a row, as part of their Ambushing the Storm Tour! The band is touring in support of their upcoming album The Desaturating Seven, and will be performing songs from the new record, in addition to all those funky fan favorites!
Formed in El Sobrante, California in 1984, funk rock band Primus currently consists of bassist/vocalist Les Claypool, guitarist Larry "Ler" LaLonde (both formerly of thrash metal band Blind Illusion) and drummer Tim "Herb" Alexander. To date, the band has released eight studio albums to date; an eclectic mix of bass-driven, complex and unusual records, earning them the reputation for being “… quite possibly the strangest top-10 band ever!” Also known for recording the original theme for the TV show South Park, the band's most recent release, 2014's Primus & the Chocolate Factory with the Fungi Ensemble, is a re-imagining of the soundtrack to the 1971 film Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory.
