Zappa Plays Zappa

When: Sat., Sept. 12, 8 p.m. 2015

Touring on one of his favorites of his father’s records, Dweezil Zappa celebrates 40 years since the release of Frank Zappa & the Mothers of Invention’s One Size Fits All by recreating the album live. The setlist runs through the album, so it includes rarely performed songs, including “Evelyn, a Modified Dog,” which Zappa says Frank never performed live. Beyond how compelling the massive arrangements already are, you can expect improvisations from Zappa, who is obviously a master in his own right as a Grammy-winning artist. So much so that his fans demanded he release a new record, Via Zammata’, which came out last month and features the only song that Zappa co-wrote with his dad. Additionally, superfans can take a guitar master class from Dweezil Zappa at 4 p.m. on the day of show for $75. Shredder of a day for innovative music lovers. – Ashley Belanger
