Attention, St. Louis area Zappaphiles: If the appearance by Zappa Plays Zappa this Thursday opening for Return to Forever at the Fox Theatre isn't enough to sate your appetite for Frank Zappa's music, there's more on the way in a couple of months, as the Old Rock House today announced that the Zappa tribute band Project/Object will perform there at 8:00 p.m. on Wednesday, October 19.
Formed in the early 1990s and based in New York, Project/Object is one of the longer-lived and better-known Zappa tribute bands, and have played St. Louis a number of times before, notably at Cicero's. Former Zappa singer/guitarists Ray White and Ike Willis (pictured), who's from St. Louis, are among the many Zappa alumni who have been guest performers with Project/Object, and both are scheduled to be part of the fall tour that includes the Old Rock House show.
Tickets for Project/Object at the Old Rock House are $15 in advance, $18 day of show, and go on sale at 5:00 p.m. this Friday, August 26 via Metrotix.
