Even if you are not a fan of Gooferman's music, you can't help but like all of the sexy clown ladies who gallivant around the stage and floor through the set.

The first couple of Gooferman, Boenobo TheKlown and Illy McMahan, fight after the show. This was supposed to be a shot of McMahan decking TheKlown, but he couldn't give as good of face as she can. Next time...
