The surviving members of Queen are going out on tour this summer with 2008 “American Idol” runner-up/all-around incredible singer Adam Lambert in the Freddie Mercury role. Great idea (MUCH better than a hologram Freddie, anyway).
Man oh man: watch Connecticut’s own Z3 rip through 15 minutes of Frank Zappa’s “Dumb All Over” last weekend at Garcia’s at the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, N.Y. Mind-blowing.
I was fortunate enough to write about the Z3 last summer, right before they went to Germany to commune with fellow FZ-ers. This Garcia’s gig was an after-party show following the Zappa Plays Zappa, which took place at the larger Cap. Check out the Z3 when you get a chance (tour schedule here), and also get down to the Cap/Garcia’s.
(Note: make sure the volume is turned all the way up before you hit play.)
From the promoter’s official release:
“Due to illness we regretfully announce that we have to reschedule our show tomorrow night, March 4th, at The Dome at Oakdale. Sameer is battling Bronchitis and is on a doctor’s ordered vocal rest. We apologize for any inconvenience this causes but we are rescheduling for Sat June 21st and look forward to coming back in full health!”
Tickets for tomorrow night’s show will be honored. (Or if you want a refund, be on the lookout tomorrow at noon.)
