EASTON — Dweezil Zappa will bring his “Hot Rats & Other Stuff” tour to the Avalon Theatre at 8 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 14.

With a name like Dweezil, you know he’s got to be a Zappa.

For years now, he’s been carrying on the musical legacy of his father, the legendary composer and guitarist Frank Zappa. As part of that mission and his 2019 tour, Dweezil Zappa and his band will perform his father’s “Hot Rats” album live on the Avalon stage.

Released 50 years ago and dedicated to Dweezil, who was only a month old at the time, Frank Zappa’s first solo album is considered a classic of jazz-rock fusion. According to All Music, “Hot Rats’ genius lies in the way it fuses the compositional sophistication of jazz with rock’s down-and-dirty attitude — there’s a real looseness and grit to the three lengthy jams, and a surprising, wry elegance to the three shorter, tightly arranged numbers (particularly the sumptuous ‘Peaches en Regalia’).”

Dweezil Zappa’s stage recreation will be surrounded by an assortment of other psychedelic, avant-garde/odd-metered toe tappers well known to Zappa aficionados.

Tickets range in price from $60 to $100. They are available by calling the Avalon box office at 410-822-7299 or going online to www.avalontheatre.com.
