The Duo de Twang features Claypool alongside his longtime collaborator and high school friend, Bryan Kehoe, playing acoustically-inspired covers of staple songs. Next up was The Claypool Lennon Delirium, who threw down a psychedelic set at the tail end of an incredible debut year for them. The collaboration between Claypool and Sean Lennon produced one of the best albums of 2016, The Monolith of Phobos, and that music has only come to life in the live setting. CLD played songs from the new album, as well as some choice covers including King Crimson’s “In The Court Of The Crimson King”.Claypool Lennon’s cover of “In The Court Of The Crimson King” can be seen below.But of course, the heart of Claypool’s musicianship stems from Primus, the trio with guitarist Larry LaLonde and drummer Tim Alexander. With a totally unique sound that’s part jam, rock, metal, jazz and funk, Primus came out swinging to usher Oakland fans into the New Year. The band played a number of their well known tunes, including “John the Fisherman,” “Here Comes The Bastards,” “Jerry Was A Race Car Driver,” “My Name Is Mud” and more, delighting their longtime fans with a killer set.
