Photos: Primal Scream at Metro

Primal Scream tore into town and performed at Metro last night to a packed house. The genre-hopping rock combo played hits spanning their entire career and about halfway through the set we noticed the band was playing every single song as if it was the last one of the night. The effect on the crowd was mesmerizing, and the lone pockets of dancers at the beginning of the show spread their enthusiasm as a contagion and by the end of the show the entire floor was massed with a sweaty pack of dancing fools. After the show the band hung out downstairs at Smart Bar where they affably mingled with fans and capped off a perfect show with a perfect show of bonhomie.
