Zappa Plays Zappa

Wednesday, Dec. 19 at Knitting Factory Concert House



The children of stars are doomed to forever live in their parents' shadows. Such is the case for poor Dweezil Zappa. From the moment he was named Dweezil, he was locked into the weird and wonderful orbit of his father, Frank Zappa.

There are worse lifetime sentences to serve, however, and certainly worse ways to spend them than touring the world expertly recreating the music of an oddball genius who just happened to be your pops.

Dweezil performs as Zappa Plays Zappa, a Zappa tribute band by an actual Zappa, which sometimes features other Zappas or members of the original Zappa band, along with video projections of the original Zappa. If there's a way to cram any more Zappa into this zaptacular, we don't know about it.

The world's strangest family band will bring Boise all the instrumental wizardry and oddness it can handle this week. Game on.
