Les ClaypoolPrimus's Les Claypool is calling "The Oddity Faire" a "A Mutated Mini Fest". You can also call it a tour with an interchanging set of openers that varies by date. In NYC the show is at Terminal 5 and the openers are Saul Williams, O'Death, and Secret Chief 3. The date is March 28th. Tickets are now on Am Ex presale, and go on regular sale on Friday.

Other openers for the tour are Mutaytor, Yard Dogs, and Devotchka. It's unfortunate that Devotchka is not also on the NYC date, but that makes sense since they can headline Terminal 5 by themselves and have their own show coming up at Webster Hall.

O'Death have also lined up a ton of other tour dates that don't include Les. They'll kick things off in Baltimore on January 29th and end up back in this NYC-area for a February 14th show at Maxwell's with Legendary Shack Shakers. Tickets are on sale. From there they go to Europe before meeting up with the Primus front-man back in the USA in March.

"Devotchka is not also on the NYC date"

Very excited until I read that sentence. O'Death constantly play in the city and I have seen Les Claypool enough times. Devotchka would have been a great addition.

Secret Chiefs 3 are the only reason you need to buy these tickets. Essentially Mr Bungle without Patton, but more musically diverse.

Saul Williams is so full of shit. He's an upper class privileged guy trying to play revolutionary black man, who then does a commercial for Nike. Unfortunately, his poetry is sophomoric and he can't sing.

"He's an upper class privileged guy trying to play revolutionary black man" and What the hell would you know about that Anonymous 4:03pm ? Saul Williams is not the only one who's "full of shit". Go read a book.

Yup, grew up in little Newburgh NY with his father being the preacher, went to private schools (Morehouse and Tisch), television star wife, Nike commercials ... real "revolutionary" guy. Heh.
