    Primus is so damn good live. Anyone else go? Never seen Marquee that packed before. Hadn't seen primus since the 90s and they were as good as ever.

    I have seen clutch four or five times now, never really heard their music outside of concerts, they just always happen to tour with bands I want to see. I know they have a big following and all but I don't think I am much of a fan outside of a song or two.

    Primus is amazing live. I'm sorry I wasn't able to make it because Marquee has turned into a pretty decent venue sound-wise. The beverage prices are another story!

    I actually saw Primus' first show in Phoenix waaaaaay back at Rockers. I was about ten feet from Claypool. I just sat there in awe watching this bass player funk it up like I had never seen before. Had a brief chat with the boys after the show in their used Winnebago because my buddy knew LaLonde from his old band, Possessed. Good times.

    it sold out too. I couldnt believe the amount of people there. At one point during clutch I went outside to get some smokey air and cool off a little. While I was out there, clutch finished performing. I tried to go back inside and between the beer lines, bathroom lines and thousands of people flooding onto the patio, it was impossible to go in. I tried on 3 occasions, 2 of them i went back outside and just waited 5 minutes. The third try was the charm.

    Even once primus was on, it was very difficult to get down to the pits, the crowd was packed in there like sardines.
