Stone Temple Pilots bring their Core to the Paramount for two nights

I see what’s at the ending of the rat trap
Lady Jabowakee’s eatin’ bed bugs
The rabbit dug a hole straight through to China
So where do we go?
And where is the rabbit’s hole?

From “Huckleberry Crumble” by STP

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of their debut full-length, Core, Scott Weiland and his bandmates –guitarist Dean DeLeo, bassist Robert DeLeo and drummer Eric Kretz– are playing the record in its entirety. So you can expect to hear grunge/rock classics like “Plush,” “Wicked Garden,” “Creep,” “Crackerman” and “Sex Type Thing” when the band hits the Paramount next week.

The foursome has not toured since the release of its eponymous sixth album in 2010, but STP recently released its first live DVD, Alive in the Windy City, and Weiland told Rolling Stone he’s looking forward to playing Core in its entirety this time around, with specific mention of the first song they wrote as a band, “Where the River Goes.” Weiland also said a new STP record was likely to materialize in the future…

So check out the alt-rockers known for their tight hooks and stadium-size sound when they play at the Paramount in Huntington on Monday, August 27th and Wednesday, August 29th.
