You know how you always wanted Primus to do stripped-down, Americana-flavored versions of their songs that were almost unrecognizable from the originals? No? Well, just trust us on this one: You did and it’s awesome. Les Claypool’s Duo De Twang, a collaboration of the famed Primus bassist and Marc “MIRV” Haggard from San Fran freak-folk band M.I.R.V., reimagines select cuts from the Primus canon, as well as a slew of hillbilly tunes, through a twangy prism of dobro bass and resonator guitar. It all warms the listener like bathtub gin. Catch the duo this Friday, August 29, at the Higher Ground Ballroom in South Burlington, with New York City’s Reformed Whores.
