Zappa plays Zappa is more than just a tribute to one of the greatest composers of the 20th century. First, it’s a hallucinated musical trip delivered with clockwork precision by a highly talented band. The way Dweezil Zappa reproduces the guitar solos of his illustrious father is already a feat, but watching him work with Frank Zappa’s more abstract repertoire is downright staggering. Zappa plays Zappa is a total immersion in the unique world of a true music icon.

First opening act: Bernhari (8 PM)
