- check out a sf-based group called Live Human. they were the support act 
the west-coast leg of a tour I was on (I play with the Tom Tom Club) and 
were truly amazing.
line-up was double bass, trap set and turntables.
really very truly integrated; creative as hell; and
they rocked (and swung) like crazy. they have a couple cds out...
