Primus/Gogol Bordello :: 08.12.10 :: Red Rocks Amphitheatre :: Morrison, CO

Gogol Bordello and Primus returned to Red Rocks Amphitheatre earlier this month. Primus features Les Claypool (bass, vocals), Larry LaLonde (guitar) and multi-talented drummer Jay Lane, who left touring with the latest Grateful Dead act, Furthur, to join Primus on the road in 2010. Primus formed in Northern California, with musical influences like Pink Floyd and Frank Zappa. There musical style is hard to define, and Primus has been referred to as psychedelic polka, thrash-funk, alternative rock, and much more.

Gogol Bordello's eight band members hail from across the globe. The band formed in 1999 on NYC's lower east side, and is known for theatrical stage shows and catchy polka sounding punk songs. Much of Gogol Bordellos sound hails from Gypsy music, and features violins, accordions, guitars, drums and other noisemakers. The last time Gogol Bordello played at Red Rocks Amphitheatre the band sat around with Manu Chao and played music outside of Red Rocks Park until the sun came up in true gypsy style.
