Zappa Plays Zappa continues 40th anniversary celebration of "Roxy & Elsewhere"
Zappa Plays Zappa has added a few more performances to the club tour celebrating the 40th anniversary of Frank Zappa's "Roxy & Elsewhere."
The tribute band, helmed by Frank's son Dweezil Zappa, began the journey earlier this month and will take a couple weeks off before the next show, slated for Oct. 8 in Lincoln, NE. Concerts in Charlottesville, VA (10/15), and Ridgefield, IL (11/3), have recently been added, as well as a handful of shows early next year.
The 2013 portion of the itinerary wraps up with a three-night stand Nov. 7-9 at Los Angeles' Roxy Theatre, the same club where "Roxy & Elsewhere" was recorded in 1973.
The Grammy-winning Zappa Plays Zappa will perform the entire album at each show, according to a press release. This includes "Don't You Ever Wash That Thing?," "Be-Bop Tango (of the Old Jazzmen's Church)" and "Echidna's Arf (of You)," among others.
