Zappa Plays Zappa - NYC - Oct 31
« on: October 12, 2006, 09:35:35 AM »
Madison Square Garden Paramount Theater.  I have two tickets and the person that was going to go with me has to cancel.  I think you know how good this is going to be.  NYC, Halloween, Zappa.  I still want to go, so I figured there might be someone here in Parkertopia that would want a ticket.  $65 - face value.  Decent seats.  Or you can break my heart and take both of them (heart's partially broke anyway).  So, send me an e-mail if you're interested.

(I hope this doesn't break forum policy - I think this is a legit Parkerian to Parkerian community outreach.  I figured I'd come here first before posting on Craig's List or FleaBay).

If my buddy doesn't have something planned with his children, he'll probably want to hook with you. Infact, he's such a concert junkie, he may already have tix. I'll give him the info. I wish I could see this show.

EDIT IN: BTW, what is your name? Funny, I don't think I've ever known. I'd feel a little weird asking if he want's to go with a dude named BNO. hahaha [:D]

If the west coast was closer to the east coast I'd definately see that show. Alas Zappa plays Zappa isn't coming close to Vancouver [:(]

I saw the concert when it was in my town it was terrific. If you know any of the music and even if you don't you want to see this concert. [;)]

Yeah, isn't that awesome?!?!?  Apparently Ahmet and Dweezil swam with a school of dolphins when they were younger, and the experience had a profound affect on them.  I'm not sure if Frank had the cover idea planned along with the master tapes, but I think it is an amazing piece of visual art regardless.

If I lived closer to the NYC area I would take the ticket off your hands. Sadly I missed the ZpZ Rochester Hills show.

This is a must see.  From the way Dweezil was talking about it on stage, he's going to be touring Frank's material for a while.  Drive somewhere and see this.  Take your kids.

Observations -

Steve Vai in a context where his stunt guitar playing works.

Black Page.

Dweezil is a player.  

Napoleon was great - the vocals were great.

The band is off the chart good - they really don't need Vai and Bozzio to do this material.  Vai and Bozzio were novelties.  Nice novelties but not necessary novelties.  I would love to see other alums do guest appearences.  Yeah, Adrian Belew, George Duke & Vinnie Caliauta... zoom.

I miss Frank. I can only imagine what he would have been doing with what we have now.

From the reviews I've read, I'm suprised that they didn't do anything different or special for the Halloween NYC show....especially since Zappa, Halloween, and NYC have such a unique bond.
