Primus & the Chocolate Factory/The Fungi Ensemble 

When: Mon., April 27, 8 p.m. 2015
Price: $39.50-$49
Primus frontman Les Claypool was only 7 years old when David L. Wolper's Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, the fantastic film based on the Roald Dahl book by the same name, debuted in movie theaters. Yet, the film has stuck with him. Last year on New Year’s Eve, Claypool and co. paid homage to the movie with a Willy Wonka-themed Primus and the Chocolate Factory show; during the concert, the band performed the film's soundtrack in its entirety. Expect that to be the case tonight, though the group will perform two sets. The first will be a stripped down set featuring all the band's best-known songs — tracks such as "Jilly's on Smack," "My Name is Mud" and "Jerry Was a Race Car Driver." Things will get Wonka for the second set. (Niesel)
