Primus will stream a “one-of-a-kind virtual concert,” billed as Alive From Pachyderm Station, on Friday, December 11th. Alive From Pachyderm Station offers fans their first chance this year to see the band in concert. The show was pre-recorded at Les Claypool’s Sebastopol, California winery, Claypool Cellars, marking the band’s first time playing at the location.

“Strange, eclectically wonderful things tend to happen when the three of us get in a room together with our instruments,” Claypool said along with the Alive From Pachyderm Station announcement. “This will be an intimate and casual performance between three longtime friends as opposed to an elaborate ‘show.’ Primus in the raw.”

As an ominous, digitized voice explains in the Primus stream’s official trailer, “In the constellation of Primus, there lurks a mysterious invisible force: The purple hole of Pachyderm Station. Twelve months into COVID cross, in mourning of the tours lost, in a wonderous [sic] flash of glory, once more to grace the night.”

The virtual show will air on Friday, December 11th at 6 p.m. PT. Ticket-holders will be able to replay the stream for 72 hours after the initial airing. Early bird tickets are available from Tuesday, December 1st through Friday, December 4th at the discounted rate of $15. Prices increase to $20 on December 5th. Tickets and exclusive event merch are available here.

While feel-good stories have been few and far between in 2020, Les Claypool brought fans some viral (the good kind) happiness with his budding friendship with Aquaman actor and avowed Primus fan, Jason Momoa. In March, Momoa showed off his new Pachyderm bass—a gift from Les himself—on his Instagram page. In September, Claypool posted some photos of an afternoon spent fishing and jamming with Momoa at Les’ place. Check out the photos and video here.
