Les Claypool’s Very Special Guest

Les Claypool will close the year with a pair of shows at Oakland, CA’s Fox Theater. The bassist will play with Primus on December 30 and his own Fancy Brigade on December 31. In addition to openers The Residents on December 30 and The Dead Kenny G’s on December 31, a special guest will join the festivities on New Year’s Eve.

Claypool explains:

As part of Les Claypool’s 20th Anniversary New Year’s Extravaganza we’ve got a very special surprise guest who will be joining the fracas on New Years Eve. We can’t reveal who this person is due to contractual obligations, radius clauses and his general disregard for society, but we can give you a glimpse of his backstage rider:

1. 1 Crying Towel
2. Yesterday’s newspaper
3. 1 8-Ball of Blow
4. 1 copy of Plumpers Magazine or Leg Show
5. 1 pack of Swisher Sweets
6. 1 dozen Donuts or Micky’s Bigmouth Beer
7. 1 backrub From Derek Featherstone (nude and non-negotiable)
