Primus may be on the down low, but Les Claypool still has plenty of avenues to express his inner bass-slappin' weirdo. From Oysterhead to Sausage to The Frog Brigade to The Holy Mackeral, the only variable is the rotating casts of characters that joined the cartoon-voiced master of ceremonies. Claypool's latest band includes percussionist Mike Dillon of Hairy Apes BMX and Gabby La La, an eccentric sitar-and-ukelele-strumming lady. Openers Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey bring a refreshingly rooted jazz foundation to the jam circuit. The Tulsa, Ok.-based trio has collaborated with artists as diverse as Claypool and Charlie Hunter and now records for the distinguished Knitting Factory record label.
