The Show Report, 8/3: Primer 55, yo

August 3, 2009

Tonight Ozarks Live Productions brings Primer 55 and its unusual mix of rock, punk and hip hop to The Outland Ballroom with openers Extreme Hate Frequency, Six Shots Till Dawn and Fiera. Been a minute since you’re heard news from Primer 55? The band has reportedly been hard at work on a new album since January, tentatively titled The New American Gangsters, which does not have an official release date yet. Fans don’t need to wait to hear new tunes, though, as the band has posted three tracks from the upcoming album (which may or may not keep that working title) on its MySpace page: “Picture Frame,” “Flexin” and “You Can’t F*** With Me.” The last is an interesting sample/reworking of the guitar riff from Iron Butterfly’s “In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida”–not the first (or best) application we’ve heard, but solid and played on their own instruments, which should count for some bonus points. It should rock the house live, though, and that’s exactly what we’re anticipating tonight.
