Primus performed as the music guest for Jimmy Kimmel Live show on ABC Monday night. I snatched up tickets to be in the crowd for the taping and sure enough it happened. Originally I was gonna arrange to be in fursuit but they said it would be a high risk security issue that they've had problems with before. Oh well, can't blame a guy for trying. Still though. I was 10th in line of probably well over 500 people as we waited outside the gate for our cue to come in. The wait wasn't all that bad because connecting with total strangers in line over appreciation for a band is one of those second nature deals. I should mention sound check was going on as well so getting a early taste was also very cool.
After hours had passed we finally got clearance to go in but not after a security check dealing with pat downs and a metal detector entry, just like at the airport. All worth it though because I landed a spot right in the very front on the barricade in front of the man himself, Les Claypool.
Don't believe me? Here's the proof.
Primus - Jilly's on Smack
Primus - Lee Van Cleef
I'm the guy in the green and red Krueger hoodie next to my friends Danielle (blonde) and Rande (dude with the cell taking photos). Oh yeah and the whole place smelled like weed with actors all around us smoking it up like no tomorrow. Welcome to show biz.
