07/21/2017 Primus, Clutch (Rochester, NY @ Dome Arena)

Clutch in my backyard at the Dome? Yes! I got tickets to this as soon as they went on sale. And then I ended up having throat surgery scheduled for the day before… meaning I would be on voice rest. Complete voice rest. Everyone was asking, “Are you still going to go?” Uh, I didn’t have surgery on my ears! Of course I went. Got right down front too. I didn’t really have to talk to anyone anyway. This being my third Clutch show, it was the first that had any semblance of a mosh pit. They did skew old-school towards the end of the set (Immortal, Peterbilt, Spacegrass (which I finally got to see!)) and people predictably went nuts – a lot of people came out of mosh retirement! They also played three new songs, including the live premiere of Bubonic Blues. Tons of fun, even though I couldn’t sing along this time.

I retreated to the back to hang out with Brett and his buddies for Primus. I had always been sort of interested to see them, and now having seen a show, I’m not any more of a fan. Perhaps its because I didn’t know a lot of the songs save for the hits (Wynona, My Name Is Mud, Jerry Was a Race Car Driver), but the set felt overly long, and I just wasn’t that interested. So it was okay, they sounded good, however it didn’t do a whole lot for me. I can say I’ve seen them!
