Primus Brings “Pure Imagination” To The Paramount (Photos)

By: Xander Deccio When you think of Primus, you think of crazy, bass-driven prog-rock ditties like “Jerry Was a Race Car Driver” and the innuendoed “Wynona’s Big Brown Beaver.” When you think of Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory (or for you millennials, Charlie and The Chocolate Factory),  a crazy, psychedelic children’s book/film that makes […]

Planes On Paper's The Ruins

Planes On Paper: The Ruins EP and release party announced

By Christine Mitchell Planes On Paper’s folky music is deceptive in the best possible way. The Ruins (out Jan. 1), the band’s second EP, immediately embraces the listener with the pedal steel’s warm molasses sound.

Fleetwood Mac is back and better than ever at T-Dome (Photos)

He let the legendary group’s music and […]
