Dave on Blue Man Group Album

By Waldo Jaquith
An article in Tuesday's Chicago Tribune reports that Blue Man Group's February album will include Dave Matthews. No specifics are given beyond "vocal contributions." The as-yet-untitled album will be produced by hip-hop legend Dan "The Automator" Nakamura (aka Dr. Octagon, Lovage, Deltron 3030 and Handsome Boy Modeling School), which is fairly cool in itself. The bizarre off-Broadway performance-art group, whose performance has been running since 1991, has just one album thus far, a popular disc entitled "Audio," which came out in December of 1999.
