Live Review- Primus 3D Hammerstein Ballroom NYC 10/19/12
Hey all,

Got a new review up on Glide.

You can read it right c'here!!!

It is a live review of Primus 3D at the Hammerstein Ballroom in NYC on last Friday night 10/19/12.

Primus have always been an RtBE favorite but it must be said I just can't get into their new stuff and more hippy direction. Getting 8 of those songs played on this night just didn't do it for me.  The album and now the band feels more like another Les Claypool side project then the band that shaped my youth.

Maybe it is just growing up, but they have really made a move towards the "jam" now and the music is solid just not as engaging as I hope it would be. I am not sure maybe it was just me as the crowd really seemed to be into it...and were uber fucking high, but that is what it is needed to be done now at a Primus show.  Don't get me wrong I had a fun time but I just think their new tunes aren't up to snuff for Primus. 

Below are some clips from the night and if you go to this link for Toasterland and scroll to the bottom of the page you can listen to the full streaming concert.  Granted for a show like this music was only about 75% with the visuals adding, but it is still pretty cool Toasterland posted this.  Pretty apropos that you can hear somebody hawking "Mushrooms and Doses" about 5:30 minutes in "American Life".     
"Hamburger Train"

"Those Damned Blue-Collar Tweekers"
