Win Free Tickets for Primus & The Chocolate Factory at Fillmore Miami Beach


Could Primus & The Chocolate Factory be to Willy Wonka as Dark Side of the Moon is to The Wizard of Oz?

Well, Les Claypool hopes so. The Primus frontman admits he "always wanted to be Wonka." And now he's come as close as possible by reuniting with his original bandmates, guitarist Larry Lalonde and drummer Tim "Herb" Alexander, for a tribute to the trippy children's classic and its music.

But "as opposed to just going in and recording the songs and playing them the way they are in the film, we twisted them up a bit," Claypool says. "Twisted them up a lot."

And what to expect from Primus & The Chocolate Factory in concert? Some Primus classics. Primus candy bars. And the full Primus-on-Wonka songbook.

Check the cut for a chance to win free tix.
