After nearly 12 years, experimental rock icons Primus returned to the F.M. Kirby Center in Wilkes-Barre for a sold-out concert featuring the classic band lineup of vocalist/bassist Les Claypool, guitarist Larry LaLonde, and drummer Tim Alexander playing two full sets and an encore packed with their best work from early ’90s albums “Frizzle Fry,” “Sailing the Seas of Cheese,” “Pork Soda,” and “Tales from the Punchbowl.”
