He's playing a the Newport Music Hall -a delighful little cave-like, yet legendary venue in Columbus next Thursday.

 

Ticket-bastard has tix for an Andy-Jack, (plus their usurious 'service charges, which oughta put it up around $30/seat...) And then there's the inflated beer prices... And the new-fangled smoking ban...

 

 

Ahh, {censored} it! I guess I already talked myself out of it, unless somebody can make a truly compelling argument to the contrary.

GO!!!!!!!!!!!!

i've never seen him with primus/frog brigade, but i did see him with Gabby La La at bonnaroo. his stage presence is incredible, i would give up smoking for a few hours to be able to go to that show. *lights up last camel* claypool never comes within a reasonable distance from my town, so i'm gonna have to save awhile before i can afford the road trip/tickets to go see him.

 

GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I've seen him with Oysterhead, Primus, and C2B3....all were good shows, but I guess I've tired of his "hick-like rapping" over oompah bass lines. The best parts of all of the shows is when he shuts up and just plays bass...IMO.

I actually don't care for his style. Saw him open for U2 with Primus and he was out-classed...

 

Particularly didn't like his arrogant quote that he thought he would get the call from The Who when Entwistle passed.

I would definately go, I've seen primus 3 times.

 

Always a fun gig, and you'll jump around like pogo stick :D

 

 

I still dont get how he plays with his bass practically parallel to the floor & pulls off his chops flawlessly without even lookin at it and spits those bizzare vocals. He's just a natural freak of nature.
