yikes. not really digging this set list.


Not many "new" songs, but the performance in Syracuse was great. I was really glad they didn't play Echidna's/Wash for the thousandth time.
We should start a thread of songs ZPZ needs to play. I'd start with:
Sinister Footwear II
Alien Orifice

But, see those songs need marimba/vibes. Maybe with the money DZ made from "Wife Swap", he could hire Billy Hulting back?

Hey Ed, yes Call Any Vegatable is still like JABFLA, with the outro rap.

Billy is rehabilitating his shoulder. He had surgery. He said he's finally out of the sling and able to type two-handed.

That looks like a really short setlist. Are you (or anyone else) sure it's complete?

Really? Even though they only played 16 songs?

Hope it doesn't stop there: a brassy big-band edition of ZPZ could be potentially interesting!

Am I reading these setlists correctly?

Have ZPZ now scaled their setlists down to only 16-18 songs? If so, considering the particular songs performed, that essentially means they're playing only 90-100 minutes per show?! :shock:

We are toying with a theme for 2015, not Apostrophe and not Roxy, obviously. A few albums being tossed around. Another more "audience choice" based idea where there is voting prior to the tour and the voted on songs all get played every night (there'd be 8 songs, and they'd be voted on in "groups" of song styles i.e. "the hits", "really hard shit to play" "songs the band has never played" and a 4th random group, 2 songs from each category.... something like that

You can't please everybody and respectfully, the audience that makes up this message board is small and very hardcore Zappa lovers, obviously. I was at the show in Brooklyn and I've seen the band play about 45 times and I thought it was my favorite set list. It was a hell of a set list for the youthful Brooklyn Bowl crowd, many of whom had never seen the band and they played a "hit" heavy show, or something. My point being, we all want to hear different things and it's impossible to have a set that every single person in the audience is going to be thrilled with.

They did the tour a few years back with Scott Thunes on bass and it was only west coast and it never came east and that set list was unique to itself. Dweezil put a comp of that tour out on CD, and it's great. I wish I had seen that show. I didn't get out there for those

I took several people to the Thunes tour, two newbies, it was awesome...I trust DZ and all who work with him, because you deliver. I usually skip the festival shows and under ticket shows since the set is shorter.

I have secured my tickets to SLO, KU and Nic will be going with me...I have one request, DZ never seems to play the Evil Prince when I see him and I know this band knows how to play it...I like the idea for the 2015 show.

I've been finding some setlists at this link. It's usually pretty acurate.

Sweet! But unfortunately, I still can't find this particular setlist online.

Sounds like a great idea!

Also, since it is One Size Fits All's 40th Anniversary next year, it would make a pretty sweet album entirety show. But then again, you've probably already considered this...:wink:
