Tonight's Primus poster from Denver by Zoltron

Primus is in Denver playing two shows the next couple of days and Zoltron created this kickass poster for the concerts. 100 signed and numbered posters will be available each night & some artist copies will be for sale at on Wednesday 10/19.

They have been selling posters signed by the band also to help Les' brother Ron's son. Les Claypool's brother Ron found out last year that his little baby boy, Matthew, had been emergency airlifted to Stanford Medical Center where he was diagnosed with leukemia. Matthew has since been undergoing rigorous chemotherapy treatment and he is progressing as well as can be expected. Needless to say this has been a gut wrenching experience for the family and as the big brother Les, it breaks his heart to watch Ron and his wife Amy go through the torment of seeing their little boy suffer.

Ron is also very proud and not overly comfortable with the notion of taking charity even from his own family. Unfortunately the insanely monumental cost of treating a child with Matthew's ailment is overwhelming so Ron and Amy have set up a website, where folks can donate to help offset some of the medical expenses. Matthew is facing a minimum treatment period of three years. It is unfathomable to me to imagine the notion of a "little shaver" like Matthew spending the first years of his life on "chemo".

This last year Ron opened his own business, GREEN GOPHER GARDEN SUPPLY in the Monterey area and has been progressing slowly but surely in the hydroponics retail business. But, like all new businesses the first year is sketchy and I would like to encourage anyone in need of hydroponics supplies to do business with Les' brother. Buying from GREEN GOPHER is actually the best way to help Matthew in the long run.

  1. That's easily the best poster of the series so far.
