Just released in USA, this looks interesting, but comments, recommendation (or not) most welcome:

Electric Apricot: Quest for Festeroo DVD

 
Electric%20Apricot:%20Quest%20for%20Festeroo%20DVD
 
 
 
 
Featuring brilliantly self-aware new original music by Electric Apricot (i.e., Les Claypool and friends) and starring real-life luminaries like Warren Haynes, Bob Weir, Matt Stone (South Park), Mike Gordon, and Seth Green (Married With Children), Quest For Festeroo follows the fictional band as they strive to gain a spot performing at the most festivally festival of them all, Festeroo.

Electric Apricot is a band for the ages. Fearless in their musical experimentation and never afraid of breaking new ground, the band seeks to achieve a higher consciousness through music. When an aspiring documentarian sets out to prove there's more to modern music than the charts would suggest, what he discovers is a musical universe teeming with unbound creativity and limitless potential. This hilarious mockumentary in the spirit of Spinal Tap and A Mighty Wind takes a look at the jamband phenomenon, poking fun at the hippie impetus and rock and roll cliches that never seem to die.

A Les Claypool Film?  Gotta be nicely weird. Big%20smile  Particularly if Seth Green is involved.  Love Robot Chicken.  My kind of humor for sure.
