Electric Apricot: Quest for Festeroo 
Thursday, January 10, 7:30

Les Claypool and Cast members in person

Les Claypool, singer and bassist with the band Primus, makes his directorial debut with this irreverent spoof of the music industry, tracking a fictional jam band called Electric Apricot along their rocky commercial and spiritual journey to achieve the glories of the Grateful Dead and Phish. Claypool plays Electric Apricot’s drummer Lapland, and along with fellow band members Adam Gates, Brian Kehoe and Jonathan Korty, we share the travails of recording the first album and follow them up that yellow-brick road to Festeroo, their ultimate gig. Largely filmed in Marin, the film features cameo appearances by musicians Bob Weir and Mike Gordon, as well as Seth Green and Matt Stone. Rated R for some language and sexual content including references. Producer: Jason McHugh. Executive Producer: Matthew J. Powers. Director Les Claypool. (US 2007) 91 min.
