Les Claypool and gang are currently in the midst of a “3-D tour” which came through NYC on Friday night (10/19)…

“There was also a big screen behind the instruments, on which strange film clips were shown that were meant to sync up with the music. They did, but none of them made any sense at all. At one point there was footage of people arriving at Ellis Island and taking the oath of citizenship; all of them looked terrified. At another part there was kind of a Western motif going, and the face of the actor Lee Marvin appeared, sneering and snarling. At other points geometric shapes shot through space and vortexes of lights and colors danced and gyrated. We had been given 3D glasses, so all of this appeared to be coming out of the screen and down from the stage, during which time Claypool spanked the bass and never really sang so much as muttered in a guttural voice. Seldom could you actually understand what he was saying. It was kind of like the train announcements that they make when you’re on the subway. But the lyrics aren’t exactly the point here; the atmosphere is, and this was simply a spectacle in every sense of the word.” [Steven M. Finklenstein]
