For more than 27 years, musical outlier Primus has been creating some of the most unique, boundary-pushing music since the early days of Zappa and Pink Floyd. Its first album in 11 years, Green Naugahyde is another experimental project that pays tribute to the band’s earlier days. According to Primus’ leading man, Les Claypool, “We’re still doing our own thing and we’ve got to own it.” Known for solid rock sets and sold-out country-wide tours, Gov’t Mule opens.

Wednesday 6/5  $39, 7pm. nTelos Wireless Pavilion, Downtown Mall. 800-CPAV-TIX.
