Zappa Family Trust Announce Year of Zappa
The Zappa Family Trust will close out 2013 with a series of events honoring Frank Zappa. The events will be designed around the 40th anniversary of Frank Zappa’s Roxy & Elsewhere release. There will be a newly minted original vinyl release of the 1973 shows at the Roxy in Los Angeles as well as a Live at the Roxy concert movie. Dweezil Zappa will perform three “Zappa Plays Zappa” shows December 7-9 at The Roxy, commemorating the 1973 performances by Frank Zappa and the Mothers.
In addition, tonight the L.A. Philharmonic will celebrate the tenth anniversary of the opening of Walt Disney Concert Hall with the world premiere of Zappa’s 200 Motels. The band for the show will feature members of Zappa’s various projects including Ian Underwood, Scott Thunes, Jamie Kime and Joe Travers.
