Primus

. May 18, 2012.

Les Claypool is no doubt a constant source of innovation and we all know he’s not afraid to get a little weird in the process. Whether or not you thoroughly enjoy Primus’ creepy slap-and-pop metal, you probably appreciate the musicianship, especially Claypool putting it all on the line with his aggressive bass lines. Ask an eager bassist, even younger ones, who are some of their biggest influences — I’m willing to bet Les makes quite a few lists. They are the anti-funk, and they are mindblowing. Maybe Claypool will even bust out the Whamola (Look it up). 8pm.$35. Michigan Theater, 603 E. Liberty St., Ann Arbor. 734-668-8463. www.michtheater.org
