Full Show Friday: Col Claypool's Fearless Flying Frog Brigade 7/11/03 Vic Theater Chicago, IL

We search the murky back waters of youtube to find full concerts and post them to the site weekly, come back every seven days to help us celebrate Full Show Friday's.  These shows are of varying quality and may not be here for long so enjoy them while you can...As always, please support the artist every which way, but especially by seeing them live (if they are still playing)...This week...Les Claypool's Fearless Flying Frog Brigade!
We are focusing all month on the freaky magic of Les Claypool and his assorted, amazingly weird side projects. This week Fearless Flying Frog Brigade!

The first incarnation of CCFFFB still ranks as some of our favorite live concert experiences. It was capturing lighting in a bottle as Les was free from Primus which he was souring on and exploded into the jamband realm while keeping his power. He introduced tons of new players to the scene and added some much needed energy. If you haven't heard the two live releases, you should buy both.  As well as Purple Onion, a very underrated disk. Hell, buy all three.

This show comes from the second (or third?) go round as the Frogs and while not the classic original lineup it is still a hell of a night from Chicago's Vic Theater. The set list and players are below, so enjoy our final installment of this monthly series focusing on Les Claypool's side projects. Hope you had as much fun as we did re-living some of that kookie guys groups.
