Yoko Ono has started teasing her upcoming Plastic Ono Band concerts, which will feature a wide array of surprise guests, at the Orpheum Theatre in L.A.

A few hours ago via Twitter, she tweeted the first few names for the Oct. 1 and Oct. 2 shows, and it's a predictably odd collection that includes Iggy Pop, actor-singer-director Vincent Gallo, Oakland singer TuneYards, and L.A. mainstay Perry Farrell.

Ever the iconoclast, Gallo confirmed the appearance, though he framed the announcement differently:

Vincent Gallo (vincent_gallo) on Twitter_1283280374855

(We can't show you what he's "available for" in his tweet, because it's a tad too vulgar for this blog, but let's just say that he was available for the same thing in his notorious film "The Brown Bunny.")

We'll keep you posted on further announcements (though probably not from Gallo).

UPDATED 1:34 P.M.: Lady Gaga will be performing at the Oct. 2 show, Ono just tweeted. As well, she's added Thurston Moore and Kim Gordon of Sonic Youth, Harper Simon, the RZA, and Carrie Fisher.
