day 2: "gotta bring that funk"

i wandered up to the ropeadope stage to check out the Sherik Experience with Mike Dillon anticipating a Claypool appearance. it took me a good ten minutes to realize who the guy hitting the drums was. it's an easy mistake- i just didn't recognize Les without the mask. as soon as we realized who it was, we spread the word... it didn't take long for the entire area in front of the stage to fill up.

highlight: before Claypool magically disapeared and was replaced by Matt Dillon midway through the set, i picked up on "We Brought the Funk" and "Amazing Grace" in the key of Claypool: fast, loud, precise.

back to ropeadope for solo Franti. have fun, campers.
