Pick a day


Friday, May 10, 2013's Lowdown

Maybe Les Claypool thought Primus was feeling a little flat. The band needed to be filled out a bit. Whatever it was, a crowd of lucky Humboldtians -- the ones lucky enough to snatch up tickets early -- will crowd into the Eureka Municipal Auditorium on Friday for Primus' new, state-o'-the-art stage show ... IN 3D!

In the Fuse-produced video below, get a sneak peak of what Primus' 3D stageshow is like and learn what role George effin' Lucas played in its genesis.
