Did anyone who lives in Buffalo see the full page ad in Artvoice for Les playing at the Town Ballroom?

It appears we were tricked.

I guess thats okay, if I were him I wouldn't come to Buffalo in February either.

Maybe the lack of Northeast dates means summer in the Northeast, including a whole bunch of those New Jersey Festivals that seem to be springing up ...? Gathering too of course. But yea, where's the NYC and/or Boston gigs at least ...?

Originally, there was a Maryland Heights, Mo date posted on his website. Now that has been changed to Kansas City, Mo. This sucks! Looks like I will be making the trek up to Milwaukee and chicago.

I was just talking the other day about how I needed a little Les in my life, and he goes and schedules a little Colorado love. Awesome.

By the way, theres a few additional dates on les' website that are not posted in this story.

Thinking about going to one of the nc shows, but does everyone think he is gonna play the same set they've been playing for like the past 3 years. If so I dunno if it's worth it for me to go. btw les needs to bring on Primus!

Someone please tell me why people avoid new england. When did boston become one of those "if we have time" cities?? Its in the to 5 biggest cities in the country and bands treat us like were in fucking siberia or something. Go fuck yourself les... Its time to have a huge fest in the nh... gathering isnt cutting it... i want something in limestone or VT or even in the crappy state of mass... Is our money no good??

Just wait until he shows you the abilities of his newly modified bionic pinky. I'll be at the orange peel if my job allows me to keep the rest of my soul.

Claypool is great with Primus or at festivals when he can be a special guest PERIOD He was OK with Oysterhead (more shock value than greatness.) I saw him at Stubb's in Austin last year and while the crowd seemed into it the show was not that good. At least he dropped Gabby La-La from this tour which could make a huge improvement. My thought is if Les is standing on the stage and is not gonna SLAP THAT BASS AROUND what's the point in spending $35??

The "trio" is someone's pipe dream speculation. Paulo Baldi is touring with Les as drummer.

Hmmm... Saw Les, Dillon, and Skerik @ the Echo Project in Oct and he named the band "The Fancy Trio". Dillon kicked ass on the drum kit. Should make for a good tour & studio album. I like "Critters Suck" for a pipe dream.
