Primus took to the mainstage and offered an interesting blend of prog-metal to a mixed reaction. They stopped at one point to acknowledge some fans shouting "Primus Sucks" between songs. Bassist Les Claypool pointed out that it was actually a good thing because it made the band play much more agressively. He wasn't kidding, as Primus rocked full-blast through the remainder of their set, impressing even a non-fan like myself with their dedication.
