August 9th: Now celebrating ANOTHER dead musician
Baltimore Mayor Sheila Dixon proclaimed August 9th to be Frank Zappa Day. Baltimore being Zappa’s place of birth, it was decided that a day be set aside to celebrate the man and the music.
In honor of the occasion, Dweezil Zappa is taking the Zappa Plays Zappa tour to town for a show. Wouldn’t it be nice to be in Baltimore right now?
So, to all you Zappa freaks out there, time to dust off those Bizarre LPs and celebrate America’s last greatest composer.
Happy Frank Zappa Day.
