closed earlier this month, it left a number of already-booked shows in need of a place to happen.
Now it appears the last performance still in need of a new venue has found one, as the concert by Zappa Plays Zappa on Monday, April 20 (announced previously in this post) has been moved to The Ready Room.
This spring's ZPZ tour commemorates the 40th anniversary of the release of Frank Zappa's 1975 album One Size Fits All, and will feature performances of all the music from the album. Located at 4195 Manchester Ave in the Grove, The Ready Room is an 8,000 square foot venue that opened last year, featuring a musical menu of mostly rock acts booked by Mike Cracchiolo of the downtown club The Firebird.
Doors will open for the Zappa Plays Zappa show at 7:00 p.m., and the concert will start at 8:00 p.m.. General admission tickets for the all-ages concert are $25 in advance, $30 day of show, with a $2 surcharge for minors, and are on sale now via TicketFly.
There's also a VIP ticket offering early entrance and soundcheck access for $50 in advance. And in addition to the band's concert that evening, ZPZ's leader and guitarist Dweezil Zappa (pictured) apparently also will be doing a master class for guitarists at 3:00 p.m. that afternoon. Tickets for that cost $75 and do not include admission to the concert.
