Primus performed at the Warner Theatre earlier this year and I was there doing my best to document the event (as usual). This is a difficult band to capture due to extremely low-lighting and lots of fog/smoke. The band performed a slew of classic Primus jams to the delightment of the DC crowd. Great show.
