I couldn't do it. I'd constantly yell over people. "Gail, why don't you answer any of my questions?"

Going to this too, hopefully all three days, but more than likely just one day.

Depends on what is showing / happening / playing.

One might think them Zappas might annunciate this on their globally accessible 'What's New?" webpage site. Of course, at the Roundhouse they'll be NO CORNERS TO HIDE IN.

Was tempted by this -
Frank Zappa at the Roundhouse - Golden Ticket
The Golden Ticket entitles:
The best seats for every Main Space concert
Exclusive access to sound checks and rehearsals
Access to all Q&A sessions and film screenings
Cheesy champagne reception with Gail Zappa and special guests
Exclusive limited edition t-shirt and poster
Exclusive limited edition CD, including unreleased material
Access to Royal Academy of Music on Saturday 13 November

All for the low low price of £200!

Probably worth it if you are going to everything on all 3 days!

They'll probably release it in 25 years time with previously unheard Francesco Zappa cuts.

Hi all,

I hope you're all excited about the Zappa festival. The whole event is all beginning to take shape nicely here in Camden.
Just to let you know (for those of you who can't make it down to the Roundhouse) all the events in the Main Space are going to be streamed live online. It'll all be viewable at http://www.roundhouse.org.uk/frank-zappa. 8)

The Main Space programme is as follows:

Friday 5 November
Gail Zappa - On Stage and Off,
The London Contemporary Orchestra perform the music from The Yellow Shark
The London Contemporary Orchestra & the Roundhouse Music Collective present Wild Imaginings - the music that influenced Zappa
Saturday 6 November
Q&A / Demo session with Dweezil Zappa, Gail Zappa, Joe Travers, Ian Underwood, Jeff Simmons and Scott Thunes
Zappa Plays Zappa plus The Mighty Boosh Band
The Mighty Boosh Band
Sunday 7 November
London Sinfonietta and special guests perform the UK premiere of The Adventures of Greggery Peccary

I hope you'll be tuning in over the weekend.

Thanks, RoundhouseLDN

like we easily see can, we perceive not a phang. Is there a broad cloud covering the airwaves? last time when listening on to a webcast .. it's too early on the Westcoast presumably, GMT minus an hour in Cornwall, Galapaguess, inni? you got a clear signal? okay then, cute.

(t'da, with a fresh brand X-Fi Creative Soundblaster)

Would there be some perplexing thingies for us to do? ..except to wish for an emeraldish rain-free radar? let's check this then. Strange that further east it got mild, dry and almost bright, so wekiddly hottentoddleritch. Main thing is, get a drink and ... before that all sussed and us informed, ta & t'ra, la'ers rollerska'ers.

...the only other net wireless one has been trying following been the Worldchampionship at Airguitar-Playing where a mate of mine took the trophy ..sound and especially the images were also okay :wink: Good looks

Hello all,

The final preparations are all underway - Gail Zappa and Ali N Askin have been in today chatting with the orchestra who'll be performing the Yellow Shark tomorrow.

For those of you planning to follow the live stream, we're also going to be live blogging on twitter (http://www.twitter.com/roundhouseLDN) and I'll be monitoring the twitter tag #zappafest like a hawk. So if you want to be a part of the online conversation, be sure to include it in all your tweets about the festival.

Thanks,
RoundhouseLDN

Nah, no silly conversation via console and most more likely shallow twerpers. I was hoping you could enjoy a bit from that you have built up. ..okay, when it's raining rats and frogs be sure of a nudjo;)

London weather prospects:

http://news.bbc.co.uk/weather/forecast/2574 the line should stay stable though, fingers tossed.

Is this happening NOW, or are they playing random Zappa songs?
What are the times of all the events?

Lots of reverb, though....

Vince has it sussed. He knows probably also about whatswhat, scilicet The Wizardry is the Domain o' the Toothfairy. Booktip from Peter without ey Plan: Robert M. Pirsig - Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance (half of it is the most captivating search for thingy, won't say; if he hadn't stretched the otherwise marvelous novel with too much -all made-made- problems - okay, of what went wrong in philosophy and herewith the world as well)

The sound manager is Wossname Echobreach, well famous for engineering soupstars like ...see, have forgotten them, so thrilling, the acoustics are so incredible bad, that..dunno, if we wanted underwater open-air effects, all of us had gotten over to Britain.

Could someone look to the imps messing with the electronics? mercy bjornk for tickling our interest and without being unthankful at all, creating thoughts of unforeseen spleendifferousness. ..or phumming.

..some coneheads would come in handy now, d'accord for a change. ..and less bluffereeenghnnn. Open in a new window, you say? take a look at the surf, is we fish ooh wot? ..we could try move a tentacle, hmmm.
