first_imgThe Claypool Lennon Delirium brought their wild and psychedelic tour to The Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles, CA last weekend, hitting the storied venue for a Friday night performance on July 29th. The band recently released their debut album, The Monolith Of Phobos, after titular members Les Claypool and Sean Lennon teamed up after a fall 2015 tour and created new music. The result is an album that’s potently psychedelic yet marvelously melodic, as if The Beatles had continued to take LSD and delve deeper into the realms of weirdness.The band opened with their two-part original, “Cricket and the Genie,” and worked in covers from each of their respective bands (Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger and Primus) throughout the set. The band also covered King Crimson, Pink Floyd and The Beatles, while also finding time to play every original song from the Monolith album. Weaving from one song to the next, the band was clearly having fun on stage, and their light display only added to the psychedelic overtones that permeated the performance.Watch breathtaking renditions of The Beatles’ “Tomorrow Never Knows,” King Crimson’s “In The Court Of The Crimson King,” and Primus’s “Southbound Pachyderm” below, courtesy of Brian James on YouTube.

The two are a musical match made in heaven, and fans can only hope they work on more new material soon.Check out the full setlist below, as well as a gallery of images by Justin Zangerle of Shutter & Cut.Edit this setlist | More The Claypool Lennon Delirium setlistslast_img
