Eight Gigs: Primitive Man

Sun., Aug. 16, 8 p.m., Starlite Lounge, $10

Talent buyer Chris Lemos recently asked his Facebook friends why many of his amazing shows at Starlite were grossly underattended. The answer was Sacramento was suffering from having too many shows. People don't have the extra cash they once did and have to pick and choose these days. If that's true, then I'm making a decision for you. You must see Denver's Primitive Man, even if you have to pay the rent late or forgo a meal. These lads released a nauseatingly heavy EP earlier this year, Home Is Where The Hatred Is, that simply blows doors off of every like-minded release of the last year. 1517 21st Street, http://primitiveman
