Adoring Sacramento-area Primus fans can once again rejoice at the chance to chant “Primus sucks!” as the band is back from a hiatus in full-tour force, this time with an army of friends. Its latest jaunt, The Oddity Faire, is a circus “freak show” of funk, metal and everything in between, with Les Claypool (pictured) as the bass-wielding ringmaster. This miniature festival will showcase bands that Primus handpicked to represent its genre-melting approach to testosterone-infused funk metal and musical styles that warrant—if not command—a double take. Mariachi el Bronx will open. 1515 J Street, www.primusville.com.
