Primus, 500 Miles to Memphis hit the Q.C. tonight (6/1/2011)

500 MILES TO MEMPHIS Feeling at home in a honky-tonk, punk fest or an acoustic cubby hole, Ohio's 500 Miles to Memphis twirls a mighty mix of country, punk and rockabilly. Vocalist/guitarist Ryan Malott's leads the combo down rollicking byways, into gritty rock pubs, as well as easing into fiddle-caressed balladry. They're a top-notch live outfit, to boot. RIYL: Jason and the Scorchers, Rev. Horton Heat. Also on the bill are Evelynn Rose and Leadville Social Club. $6. Snug Harbor. (Samir Shukla)

PRIMUS The original lineup of Primus has gotten back together, not only for a tour run, but a new album, too. Les Claypool and Larry LaLonde are joined by original drummer Jay Lane in a show that I would imagine might feature some new songs from the band's upcoming album, Green Naugahyde. I'd also expect some classics from "Tommy the Cat" to, perhaps, a Fisherman's Chronicle. With The Dead Kenny G's. $46.70. The Fillmore Charlotte. (Jeff Hahne)
