Daily Live Download: Primus & Friends 1998 – San Francisco

March 11, 2010

Here is an interesting show for Claypool/Primus fans… this was an impromptu club gig that benefited the family of a recently deceased Bay Area musician.  His name was Calder Spanier and he was a saxophonist who had performed early on with Charlie Hunter.  Sadly, he was struck and killed by a motorist near the Oakland Bay Bridge.  He was obviously well loved in the music community, as this show features not only a surprise Primus set in his honor (featuring a brand new song no less), but a also boatload of guests like Michael Franti, Scott Amendola, a DJ scritch scratching and many others. There are two bonus tracks included from the “Spearhead & Friends” set that preceded Primus’s set.  See below for the full tracklist.

This all occurred at Bimbo’s 365, a swank supperclub type place down near Fisherman’s Wharf.  A great evening of music – I recorded this personally and treasure the memories.  I hope you enjoy as well.
