I caught the Zappa Plays Zappa show last night at the Verizon Wireless Theater. I had seen the Zappa Plays Zappa show last year featuring Terry Bozzio and Steve Vai and it was spectacular.

This time around the special guest was Ray White who’s vocals and guitar work show up on such notable Zappa discs as Zappa In New York, You Are What You Is and Läther just to name a few.

The opening guitar duet with Frank was awesome, and maybe a little creepy. Father and son jamming together from beyond the grave.

And there were times during the show that Dweezil actually started to look a bit like his father….

It was a great concert and well worth staying up past my bedtime on a school night to go see.

There’s a ton more pics in the gallery.

    I saw the ZPZ show in Austin tonight. It was excellent! Since Dweezil had hired a video crew to film the concert, the band played even longer than usual, so we ended up enjoying 3.5 hours of show! I was especially pleased to hear longtime favorite “My Guitar Wants to Kill your Mama”.

    When I was in highschool, I had such a crush on Dweezil. OMG, he played at our summer fair one year and I begged my mom to let me go see him. (I wasn’t allowed to see concerts other than classical music or jazz) It was a no – of course – I think I was mad at her for a week!
