Zappa Plays Zappa

Dweezil Zappa has led a full and often strange life in the public eye: as a young actor in iconic films like Pretty In Pink; during a semi-controversial stint as an MTV VJ; alongside then-partner Lisa Loeb on a short-lived Food Network program; as a guitarist with Herbie Hancock and the Fat Boys; and on record with his late father Frank. Then there’s Zappa Plays Zappa, which features Dweezil and his band putting a fresh spin on Frank’s freaky oeuvre. For separate additional costs (is Dweezil Only In It for the Money?), hardcore Zappa-ites can attend a guitar masterclass and gain early entry to the gig with the “Sound Check Party” package, which also includes a poster.

8 p.m. $28.
