All day Saturday

ZAPPOLOGIES an all day conference on all things Zappa. The French don't do things lightly. Remember "Boulez was as serious as cancer".

The 200 Motels show was huge.

For the people who missed them, the two main shows will be available during one year on the Philarmonie's website ... I just hope there are no regional restrictions to watch them overseas.

I just watched the 200 Motels performance and liked it very much. A new stage concept but true to the score. I always thought 200 Motels is probably FZ's most important (and best) work. A timeless pleading for the freedom of thinking, the freedom of art, tolerance and humanity. Much needed these days, maybe more than ever.
