Win Free Tickets to Dweezil Zappa Plays Zappa Tonight at the Sunshine Theater.

Play Youtube Video
Zoot Allures

I’m giving away three pairs of tickets to Dweezil Zappa Plays Zappa tonight at the Sunshine. My first Zappa album was Zoot Allures; I found it in the used bins at Natural Sound on Menaul in the late ‘70s. As I listened to it, I was initially disappointed until I heard the title track, which is among his lesser masterpieces.

My brother had lots of Zappa albums and I’ve spent a lifetime trying to assemble the best of what came blasting from his bedroom. As it turned out, there was no one album I could buy; my favorites were scattered across dozens of albums, sometimes planted in the middle of other songs that had nothing to do with them. There are still some I haven’t found, but I’ll know them when I hear them. And, of course, I’ve discovered and re-discovered dozens more favorites during my search.

The first three people to share their own Zappa stories will win a pair of tickets. I guess you’ll have to identify yourself by email to nick@alibi.com so I can get you put on the list at the door.
