The man who loves to jam, Primus’ own Les Claypool, will be playing shows at the Wellmont Theatre, House Of Blues, and the Brooklyn Bowl on June 5, 6, and 8 respectively. Audiences should expect a great deal of bass solos, eccentric stage banter, and all manner of odd musical tones to take them on a journey offered by the man who’s the bass equivalent of Captain Beefheart. Stretching beforehand is recommended as it allows for maximum grooving with a low risk for being bummed out. This is his third time back in the area within the last year, catch him now or wait another few months. Openers are the Budos Band and Hot Head Show. Tickets range from $18.50 to $27.50.
Les Claypool: Holy Mackarel!
