Over the Weekend: Gothic Belly Dancing, M83, Mutaytor, Yard Dogs Road Show, Saul Williams, Les Claypool
This weekend was about two things in Los Angeles: Watchmen and live music. Deadline Hollywood Daily's Nikki Finke reports that the highly anticipated superhero flick brought in $55.6 million over the weekend, but for those who opted to skip the Arclight mayhem there were plenty of good bands in town to check out. Plus, a gothic belly dancing festival. Read on for what we did and who we saw...
Les Claypool was joined by Saul Williams, Yard Dogs Road Show and the Mutaytor on March 7 at the Wiltern for an oddity faire of music, fire spinning, sword swallowing and dance. View theentire slideshow here.
