I've been trying to catch up on my Netflix account, and I finally got to "Electric Apricot". If you are at all into "jam bands" it is a must see, and if you are not, you won't get it, so don't bother. Think Spinal Tap for jam bands.
Les Claypool (front-man for Primus) plays a drummer named "Lapdog" who is a UCLA student making a documentary about his band The Electric Apricot, and how they get to the fictitious "Festeroo Music Festival". With guest appearances by Bob Weir, Warren Haynes and Mike Gordon, there are some witty and hilarious scenes.
Check out the trailer...
