Les Claypool

Aquarian: What have you planned for the New York show?

Les Claypool: We're going to fill it full of freaks. I guarantee it's going to be a memorable event. Whether you love or hate the music or the performers or whatever, it's going to be a very memorable event. [At] the bigger shows on the weekend, we've brought in all these extra characters, and I believe for the New York show, we're bringing in the Coney Island sideshow performers, so beyond what's already going to be on stage there's going to be plenty of things for the short attention span generation that is out there.

That's what Les Claypool said about his plans for the Terminal 5 show on Saturday, March 28th. As you can see above, he wasn't lying. The show, with openers Saul Williams, O'Death, and Secret Chiefs 3 (who are headed by ex-Mr Bungle/Faith No More guitarist and composer Trey Spruance), was the last of the "Oddity Faire" tour.

The tour coincided with the release of the Primus bassist's latest solo record, Of Fungi And Foe CD, out now on his own Prawn Song Records label.

More pictures from the show, including one of the conclusion of the sword swallowing act, below...

no O'Death pics unfortunately, but here's Secret Chiefs 3...

So many hippies!

Anyone know the Saul Williams setlist?

from the pix it looks like Saul Williams did a full set. That is his band. And DJ Krakattak or however you spell it. At the Irving Plaza show he did I bought the Krak Attak cd as a drunken impulse purchase and I'm glad I did. It is a 60 minute tribute to booty. "Where I come from we don't smoke crack, we pipe it." Genius.

Wearing a top hat in the front row is just obnoxious. Even if it is Jim James

That is the sexiest picture of Les Claypool I have ever seen.

Hipsters do not look good....they are just more confident that they are admired.

Hippies are too proud to shower.

I'd rather be feared.

Be careful with your snoot comments in public.

Mmmm stripes and yellow earrings....both look "hawt" to me!

"now it's what is the diff between a hippie and a hipster i am beginning to wonder..."

i would talk to a hippie over a hipster any day. I can't stand those little pretentious bitches. And yes I do realize that the primary readership of this site is hipster... get over it.

Ahh, a good bacon-wrapped steak and a Les Claypool show. Does life get any better than that? I submit that it can not!

new yorkers are funny. even the hippies look manicured and like they put their hippie attire together for the night.
fashionable dreadlocks should burn.
in san fran dreads spiral out of necesity for our hippies.
and hipsters wear super tight black jeans with really bright and big vintage high tops. and pedal around on their god damn fixed gear road bikes with grips that match their coporately-ressurected nike high tops

HIPpies...HIPsters...???

Les Claypool ladies and gentlemen...!!!

The fact is we all are (HIP)hypnotized by the sweet twisted twang that is Mr. Claypool.

I don't know any other act that is going to appear at terminal five in the next few months that could reach the GOD like status of Mr. Claypool.

I love les...we all were there cause our ear drums and brains love to be melted to the fantastical ideas and emotions that only can be brought to you by one man

Mr. Claypool...

Can I get some YO-HOs?

Who else could play the wham-ola? (Besides John)
