Music Break: Revisit a Very Wonka Afternoon with Primus

Wednesday May 13 2020 • 1:00pm - 2:15pm ET
Available for viewing
In-person event

Primus' Les Claypool performs the music of Willy Wonka live on Soundcheck in the Greene Space.

Matthew Septimus


Watch an encore video stream of one of the most colorful performances ever to take place on our stage.

In October 2014, the original Primus lineup of Les Claypool, Larry LaLonde, and Tim “Herb” Alexander released Primus & The Chocolate Factory — a reimagining of the score to the classic 1971 Mel Stuart film Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory. Claypool described the music as sounding like “one of the early Peter Gabriel records meets Dark Side of the Moon meets the Residents.” Primus joined Soundcheck for an intimate performance of the new songs on our stage before their sold-out show at the Beacon Theater.

Watch the video stream here on this page at 1pm ET:
