Primus in 3D

8 p.m. Sunday, October 28. Peabody Opera House, 1400 Market Street.



Primus is a hard sell to most people. Admittedly, it takes a certain brand of goofball to tolerate the band's jam-tacular music, or maybe it would be more appropriate to say it takes a certain brand of tolerance to enjoy these goofballs. But either way, the point is made: Primus is weird, and Primus fans are really weird. Enter Primus in 3-D, wherein weirdo fans will don special 3-D goggles and the Peabody Opera House will be transformed into a three-dimensional wonderland for the band to interact with during the performance. This 21-date run is being touted as the "first ever 3-D enhanced tour," and if all goes well, Claypool and the gang intend to replicate and expand it in the future.

Just Say No: Every detail of this show simply begs for the use of drugs prior to arrival — whether as enhancement for fans or as escapism for trapped employees. But come on, think of the children, or something.
