Wow, I like this line-up, this sounds like a tour where I may be interested in seeing everyone on the bill. I heard Devotchka puts on a really good live show. i caught a little bit of Saul williams at Lollapalooza this past summer, and it was very origional, but not quite my type of music. Anyhow, this tour should be interesting.

No No No Say it aint so. I love Les's devotion to always stopping here on his tours but, The Myth is THE Worst Venue in the Twin Cities. Who wants to drive out to a shopping complex in the f'in burbs for a show? I hope the place closes soon. Please move this to 1st Ave.

hes got talent and creativity that is for sure... I dont really dig the primus/claypool scene... but man can he play, I saw them at rothbury just to see him play... even though I am pretty sure the music was insanity and wildness

Agreed on the myth. Shitty, shitty venue, it can be half full and you still have trouble with line of sight. His show at first ave last year seemed to go pretty well, I wonder why the change? Super weak. Claypool nonetheless though! I will be there.

how can he tour without a stop near his home town in san francisco? this makes me sad :( i saw the headline and thought for sure to see him at the warfield.

Nice to see the cold of MN is represented... the myth is horrible... it is far away in the middle of box cutter suburbia. so nothin to do afterwards... and I refuse to go there b/c of the sight lines and acoustics... I would rather see them at Lee's Liquor Lounge than this (im kidding of course, LLL is just a bar)...

yeah, hate to complain, but i'm pretty dissapointed that i have to go to the fillmore to see les.

and i'm not really too hot on this lineup, should be interesting though. and at least the crowd at a claypool show are fun fun as hell; hardcore metal headbangers to straight wooked out hippies. (neither of those was meant to be negative, just f.y.i.)

Chidodger, you shouldve checked Devotcka out at Lolla, cause they were wicked awesome. As for Saul Williams, I agree 100%...but I do love his poetry, the man has a way with language.

Kathryn93--I could not agree with you more...Les usually does AZ shows so what's up?!

gmoo, i think it was his last tour (to colorado, at least) where he had the unconventional lineup that consisted of a percussionist, vibes (on keys, too? maybe..) player and a SAXOPHONIST taking place of the guitar, or lead instrument/whatever. everyone was extremely talented and blew me away. it.was. soo tight.

This shit gon be dope as can be. Saul Williams is the greatest man alive...just kidding. I saw him at Bonnaroo and it was mindblowing and awesome. Niggy Tardust is Amazing too. Devotchka should be sweet too. Unfortunately, they canceled at Bachanalia, but alas I will see em in STL.

Check out "Release" by Blackalicious feat. Saul, Zach De La Rocha and Lateef? Its about the best song ever.
