Survival and Son made it to Chico last night for the Dweezil show, Roxy and Elsewhere. They tore it up. Count me as another convert to Dweezil's ability to pull off his father's work with the same chutzpah and deadpan delivery.

Taking a much deserved bow after an amazing encore that featured Muffin Man and Willy the Pimp among others.
My weird neighbor lent me a bad quality mix tape of Zappa. I couldn't return it for a while because he was in jail for beating off on a public bus. I returned the mix tape awkwardly after his release. Didn't ever get into that Zappa.
A recording of one of the most unorthodox performances in the Los Angeles Philharmonic’s history — a 2013 rendition of the orchestral suites from Frank Zappa’s “200 Motels” — will be released Nov. 20.
Esa-Pekka Salonen conducted the concert, “200 Motels: The Suites,” to celebrate Walt Disney Concert Hall's 10th birthday. It will be available as a two-CD set or as downloads from the Zappa Records/UMe label.
“200 Motels: The Suites” is the 101st album of the late Zappa’s career, according to his son Ahmet. It's also the last prepared by Gail Zappa, the composer’s widow, who died Oct. 7 at age 70.
