It’s 100% comical to me that more sites are not picking up the news on the soon-to-be-named-an-absolute-masterpiece film that you should already know about if you read this site: Electric Apricot: Quest for Festeroo. Dive into the archives here.
We’ve got some dates set for the first screenings, specifically at the Tiburon Film Festival on March 15th and the Portland Lonbaugh Film Festival on April 6th. If you’re going or you know someone that is, we really want a review of this. Contact us right away.
The name of movie just points right at the comedy. What major festival do you think he’s spoofing with the Festeroo nod (duh)? Oh yes, the same one that he just signed on for…
Hopefully (and seriously hopefully) I’ll get a chance to see this movie. Any chance that someone from Les’s camp reads this site and they’d like to send me a screener copy?

Les Claypool’s directorial debut “Electric Apricot: Quest For Festeroo” will be unveiled for select festival screenings. Written by and staring Les, the movie takes you on a comedic ride with Electric Apricot as they navigate the jam scene, making their first record and their debut appearance at the one and only Festeroo.
The movie features jam band legends including the Grateful Dead/Ratdog’s Bob Weir, Mike Gordon from Phish and Warren Haynes and Matt Abts from Gov’t Mule. There are even comedic cameos from Seth Green, Arj Barker and South Park’s Matt Stone.
The film will be screened at the Tiburon Film Festival on March 15th and the Portland Lonbaugh Film Festival on April 6th.
