: What is the meaning of "preems" and "gig" in Prairie preems to flip burgers at Stones gig which I found in today's local newspaper? Thanks.

From Merriam-Webster online:

Main Entry: 5 gig
Function: noun
Etymology: origin unknown
Date: 1926
: a job usually for a specified time; especially : an entertainer's engagement

"Preems" I don't know about. Could it be "preens"?
