Two Amazing Fillmore Shows Back-to-Back in the Same Week?!

Primus Dazzles While Iron and Wine Quench Thirsts

Primus

A week of fun at the Fillmore is a-coming. First on Monday, July 20, we will be treated to the sounds of bass player and vocalist Les Claypool of Cali-born Primus.

Primus

The normal stage show of the band is a mesmerising light-spectacle and just sincere rock and roll. Their most notable single “My Name Is Mud” has kept the band afloat and landed them an infamous place amongst the die-hard fans of slap-bass and concrete lyrical merriment.

This is a bucket-list concert if ever there was one. We’ve always been huge fans of the band and you can expect to see us front and center! Here is a look back to another time we covered them.

Joining them on this tour are Massachusetts princes, Dinosaur Jr. The American rock band has been around since 1984 and are known for their melancholy lyrics and distinctive vocals. While they took an eight-year hiatus (1997-2005), the music monster kept calling and the band came back together to head out on the rigid tour-schedule for 2015. Their music is heavy with skilled guitar riffs, so it’s no wonder the tour has them opening up for legendary bass player Les Claypool.

These bands are from the days when songs had a storyline to them, and when the vocals quieted massive swells of guitar assaulting your ears. Bass and drums hit your chest, tickling your throat ten rows deep. You are transported to a different dimension. You become the concert. Can you really give up a chance to escape the heat, stress of work, kids, your boyfriend/girlfriend, or crazy ex?

Get your butt to the Fillmore Charlotte, let’s have some fun!

The second show of the week: Iron and Wine with Ben Bridwell (of Band of Horses) and Susto, visit Fillmore Charlotte the next night, Tuesday, July 21. The focus of Iron and Wine and Bridwell’s tour is Sing into My Mouth, their newest release and cover album. The album spans from a haunting rendition of Sade’s “Bulletproof Soul,” to a much-talked-about version of Talking Head’s “This Must Be The Place.”

The collaboration recently appeared on David Letterman to play the Sade cover, and began their tour soon after. Their arrival at Fillmore Charlotte will be the perfect setting for such a surreal album debut, along with the indie-folk mood that so often follows both Iron and Wine and Band of Horses. Great folk includes a hypnotic fusion of instrumental and vocal prowess, woven together organically; this is just what I expect from this show (and more).

The opening band, Susto, are Charleston locals, and fit the bill perfectly. For those of us with an adoration for folk music that has just a sprinkling of country-western, Susto provides a great fix. Check out their song “Cigarettes, Whiskey & Wine.”

For a tour full of sepia-drenched vocals, and nearly forlorn lyrics, Sam Beam, Ben Bridwell and Susto will be a tour-stop to travel for.
