This was the second time I got to see Primus. I still can’t find the set from the first (and best) time I saw them six months before this.

I can’t remember why but we got to this show really late and missed all the openers but there were zero we wanted to see anyway. This was actually a small traveling tour called Sno-core. I don’t know what that had to do with anything. I think Mr. Bungle played that "fest" the next year and then it faded away. I can't remember but I'm pretty sure the Alkoholiks played and Blink 182. There may have been more.

Since everything was so rushed that night I wasn’t even ready for Primus to start up. It was cool that Les started the show playing his stand-up bass for a couple of songs. But I just wasn’t as into this show as much as the one before. I guess because that first show I’d dreamt of seeing Primus for years before I saw them whereas this one was six months later; the magic was gone. That and the crowd not being too into them (a lot of people left after Blink 182) and we were so rushed getting there I didn’t get enough time to let myself get ready and enjoy. It was still a good show and they played a lot of songs I know they didn’t play the first time I saw them (Southbound Pachyderm, Coddingtown and a couple others). I just wish I could find that first set from October 1997 because that show was epic. It’s on setlist.fm but I know I never saw them play Wynonnas Big Brown Beaver, so that set has to be wrong.

Yeah, Bob's Party Time Lounge is one of their all-time greats. The Brown Album is a lot better than a lot of people seem to remember.

I was at this show in Ottawa back then. Blink were there, Mighty Mighty Bosstones too (they were really good that night), Alkaholiks, Aquabats and a bunch more. They had 2 stages set up and they were at opposite ends of the hall so you just turned and watched the next band play.

It was at the Congress Centre here which is a really posh place so it was surprising that they held it here (especially after I seen Pantera there in 92 and they destroyed the place) I didnt think they would allow that kind of show back in there.

I dont remember much of the show unfort, I was hammered thru most of the night! :) I was there just to see Primus really so I hung around the bar area (which was outside the concert hall due to an all ages show). Primus was great as usual but agree that the set was just too short unfort. This was the first time I seen them with Brain and he was good, but hes no Herb ;)
