Looks like Dweezil Zappa did his dad, Frank, proud last night at the Comerica Theatre. He and his Zappa Plays Zappa tribute band played a massive 2 1/2-hour set, including Frank's entire Apostrophe (') album for a crowd full of both older and younger Zappa fans. Here's what they had to say after the show.
@Adam16bit- Saw Dweezil-Plays-Frank Zappa show (free tix). Not bad, a little long, too many instro tracks. Not enough America Drinks and Goes Home.
@TheRealCyber5- Dweezil kicked ass. Signed my ticket and got a pick. Nice.
@AJPutman- Just heard 2.5 hours of live Zappa. Dweezil plus phenomenal 7-piece playing Frank's music.
@RandallfrmTempe- Dweezil: Frank would have been 70 this year... 1st tune: "The Gumbo Variations."
@ZoneArtis- I salute you Mr. Zappa. Sweet sweet music.
Jack Coleman- It's almost 1 a.m. and I'm just in from seeing Dweezil Zappa in Phoenix. I'm so glad I went! It was a great show!
Hero Comics- Had an amazing time tonight at Dweezil Zappa Plays Zappa with Vincent Deporter..... What a band! What a show! If they come to your town,do yourself a favor and check it out! I can't think of a better way to spend a Monday night!!-Todd
James Yochem- Dweezil Zappa Play Zappa was AWESOME!!! They played the entire Apostrophe (') album (honestly wouldn't had known had he said it), More Trouble Everyday (I'm certain), Don't You Ever Wash That Thing? (Dweezil said the album it was from), Inca Roads (that's right Brian Yochem) , Keep It Greasy, Baby Snakes, Titties-N-Beer, and Purple Lagoon. Also a couple I can't name.
John Knowlton- Dweezil Zappa concert, all Frank compositions lots of fun. The kid does a great job w/ it, and has a killer band.
