Influential alternative rock icons Primus have announced an intimate club date on Friday, May 18th at The Catalyst in Santa Cruz, CA as a benefit to support Les Claypool's nephew Matthew. Matthew was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) at 2 months old and was admitted into the hospital, undergoing rigorous chemotherapy treatment which is expected to last a minimum of three years. All proceeds from this show will go towards Matthew's medical bills. The show is being presented by Green Gopher Garden Supply, which is owned and operated by Matthew's father Ron. In a letter to his fans about his nephew's health, Les said "this has been a gut wrenching experience for all of us and as the big brother, it breaks my heart to watch Ron and his wife Amy go through the torment of seeing their little boy suffer."
