and he ****ing rocked. It was a small venue so I got up close with little effort and watched a hell of a show. He came out with a cellist and a xylophone and a drummer. It was quite interesting. The cello had effects on it the whole show but it was still impressive to see the cellist play guitar type licks (they did a few old primus songs). The xylophoner was very good too. I've gotta say it's the first concert I've been too that had a cello and xylophone that wasn't the symphony

Les is hands down the best bass player I've ever seen. I played a stand up bass from 6th to 12th grade and have recently picked up an electric and the techniques that he uses blow my mind.

Anyways, Les is touring with Matisyahu (who wasn't very good imo) so if you have a chance to see him you should do it.

Here's a recent kimmel performance (he did this song last night too)
