Primus to bring the Oddity Faire back to Boston

, Staff

Primus have announced plans for their second annual “Oddity Faire” tour, which will take place this fall. The band will make their way to Massachusetts for a show at the Orpheum Theatre in Boston on Sunday, October 10. Tickets for the show, which range in price from $35 to $45, are now on sale through Live Nation. Mucca Pazza, a self-described “circus punk marching band,” will open the show.

The Oddity Faire is a multi-medium event where the musicians and performers will rotate from region to region. The tour was launched in 2009 by Primus’ Les Claypool as a way to perform with a group of like-minded bands that, in his words, “dwelled outside the box and broke beyond the parameters set by the safe pallet of the mainstream.” Claypool noted at the time in a press release, “Having trod the stages of such events as Lollapalooza, Woodstock 94, Reading, Bonnaroo, etc. I’ve come to realize that there really hasn’t been an event that truly represented the type of creative individual that I am kin to.”

Primus’ last album of all new material was 1999’s Antipop.
