One of most surreal hip hop albums of the '90s, Dr. Octagon's seminal 1996 record Dr. Octagonecologyst brought together the talents of Kool Keith, Dan the Automator and DJ Qbert. It blew some minds, and caused others to scratch their heads, but  there's no other record quite like it. You can stream it below.

While 2006's The Return of Dr. Octagon is of questionable validity (Kool Keith didn't authorize its release), the three principals are getting back together for the "Dr. Octagon Experience" tour which happens later this spring, wrapping up in NYC on June 7 at Irving Plaza.  Tickets to Irving Plaza are on presale now (password: MUSICGEEKS) and go on sale to the general public on Friday, May 5 at 10 AM.

Currently the tour is only six dates, with nothing on the West Coast. All dates are listed below.
