Les Claypool will be playing at Asheville’s The Orange Peel. Claypool is a singer, lyricist, bassist and former member of the alternative rock band Primus. This future Rock & Roll Hall of Famer’s mastery of the bass guitar has distinguished him as a solo-artist since leaving the band. Claypool mixes finger-tapping, flamenco-inspired strumming, and slap bass to create his own unique style that has to be heard be believed.
The concert starts at 9pm on Saturday, March 1st, 2008; tickets are $26 in advance and $28 at the door. They can be ordered online via Ticketweb.
