The Furious Bongos play Zappa ft. Arthur Barrow with Kick The Cat

  • Martyrs' 3855 North Lincoln Avenue Chicago, IL United States (map)

The Furious Bongos are a Zappa project featuring musicians who have played alongside heavyweights like Yo Yo Ma, Mick Fleetwood, and Les Paul.

This isn't strictly a "tribute" band - doing a note-for-note rendition of Song X from Album Y while staring at their shoes didn't seem like the proper way to go about it. The result is a show that pays respect to Zappa's legacy but is still new and different and dangerous.

Kinda like Frank.

$15
7pm doors / 8pm show
