Sealing for moisture protection

I am going to paint the inside of my garage. The bottom of one wall is cement brick for a height of four courses. On rare occassions when we have prolonged periods of rain, the inside of the brick get discolored from outside moisture. Water does not seep through, however. My plan is to prime the concrete brick with a primer/sealer such as Zinser 123. I would appreciate opinions if this seems a reliable method of preparing the interior face of the cerment brick to protect paint from moisture. Thank you for taking your time to help with my problem.

I would use the UGL drylock to seal the water from coming through on the bricks otherwise even with 123 I think you'll have peeling problems with the rains.
