On Dec. 11, Les Claypool and his colleagues in Primus will stage a special virtual concert event, the irreverently (and appropriately) titled Alive From Pachyderm Station.

The streaming concert came about as a result of the band having to postpone its planned 2020 touring, which included a tour playing Rush‘s A Farewell to Kings in its entirety. It’s a harsh circumstance that all touring musicians and bands have been forced to deal with this year as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Alive From Pachyderm Station was filmed at the Sebastopol, California winery owned by Primus front man Les Claypool, and marks the band’s first actual performance from the winery:

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

Here’s a quirky preview:

And details on accessing the stream:

The virtual show will air on Friday, December 11 at 6pm PT. Ticket holders can then stream the show for the next 72 hours. Early bird tickets are available December 1 through December 4 at the discounted rate of $15; prices increase to $20 on December 5.
