Primus New Year’s Eve at Fox Theater

Already regarded by many as the world’s weirdest band (and that’s meant as a compliment as far as we’re concerned), Primus has decided to turn it up a notch for a New Year’s Eve of pure imagination. Primus and the Chocolate Factory at Fox Theater in Oakland, CA, will feature the return of Herb Alexander (in place of Jay Lane) and the backing talents of the Frog Brigade as the whole place is transported by the music of Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory. Throughout the years, Primus fans have come to expect the non-traditional from the band – specifically frontman Les Claypool – but this year’s New Years celebration likely tops the cake.

In November, the current members of Primus will head into the studio to begin work on the follow up to 2011′s Green Naughayde. Over the last 30 years, these rockers from San Francisco have found countless new ways to turn a song on its head, so pairing their off-kilter sensibilities with Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory seems like a no-brainer . Those who ordered tickets via the Primus presale are eligible to win one of five Golden Tickets which would allow the winner a signed poster, event T-shirt, a bucketful of candy and a tour of Primus’s backstage (with a guest) on New Years Eve. Those who didn’t get a ticket through presale, well, that’s why we’re here.
