What a cool show. BOC played a 13 song, 1hr & 40min. set

http://www.setlist.fm/setlist/blue-oyst ... ea289.html

We brought in a cooler with beer and food. People were setting up little tables for there wine and cheese picnics; an obvious regular thing there. I'll be more prepared if I go to this park again. We found out that you can set your chairs up starting at 4pm. We got there @ 5:30p and still found an Ok spot. The stage was a tent over a two foot platform. The sound system was great. The band was moderately loud for a small park concert.

The sunset was amazing tonight as the band rocked hard. BOC again this Wednesday W/Deep Purple!

Cool. That DP show is playing up here next Friday the same night we're going down to see ZPZ. Wish I could TiVo the DP show. ZPZ is going to be awesome though. Plook has set us up real nice.

I hope you guys get The Grand Wazoo. Make sure you line up early for entry. A spot in front of Scheila may be tough to get. Good travels for you and your group.

Kirk going?

The Kapt is still stuck on his away mission and the radio is broken... :wink:

This is a pricy trip anyway, don't want him to spend all his Federation Ducketts on one show... :)

I've rechristened you Dale Plookhardt Jr. :mrgreen: I gained confidence in your driving as time went on. You are an aggressive driver but a good driver. All the same, I might just have to follow along in the Ugly Mobile next time taking things at my own pace and meet you there. :idea: In all sincerity though, thank you for organizing this very cool getaway.

To anyone in the Los Angeles area this Sunday the 17th. $11.00 tix.
Egyptian Theatre
6712 Hollywood Boulevard
Hollywood, CA 90028


TURN UP THE RADIO: L.A. ROCK ON FILM
Gail Zappa, Moon Zappa, Haskell Wexler & More In Person!
“Bunny Bunny Bunny” / “Cheepnis” / UNCLE MEAT
Presented by the American Cinematheque and co-sponsored by Amoeba Music and Santa Monica Press.
Special guest speakers include Gail Zappa, Steve Vai, cinematographer Haskell Wexler, Jeff Stein, Ahmet Zappa, Joe Travers, and "Bunny Bunny Bunny" stars Moon Zappa and Kyle Richards.
World Premiere!
“Bunny Bunny Bunny” (ca. 1987, 20 min.) Directed and produced by Frank Zappa, this one-camera shoot stars daughter Moon Zappa (a couple of years after their radio hit “Valley Girl”) in improvised dialogue with her best friend Kyle Richards and her cousin Lala Sloatman.
“Cheepnis” (1973, 10 min.) Featuring the only footage Zappa cut together from his legendary 1973 Roxy concerts, “Cheepnis” sings the praises of low-budget monster movies. This short documents the director, bandleader, songwriter and musician at work.

Followed by:

UNCLE MEAT
1987, 100 min, USA, Dir: Frank Zappa
Frank Zappa began directing The Mothers of Invention’s one and only movie, UNCLE MEAT, less than two years after the group’s 1965 debut but it did not see release until 1987. Colorful footage from their “Absolutely Free”-era residency at the Garrick Theater in New York, and from the Sgt. Pepper/psychedelia-mocking “We’re Only in it for the Money” album cover shoot is mixed with orchestral bits from a 1968 concert at London’s Royal Festival Hall. Plus you get Rodney Bingenheimer, Linda Ronstadt, Meredith Monk and others along for the ride at the legendary Hollywood Ranch Market on Vine Street. Camerawork by the great Haskell Wexler.

I'm still toying with the idea of going to see Living Colour in Petaluma October 3rd. Petaluma is also home of the Lagunitas Brewery so there is definitely some potential here. I may even consider going solo on this one if I can't get any of the other Zealots to go.

I'm a bassist you buttheads. :P

The night went well. Except for the DUI checkpoint half a mile down the road. We thought it would be dead all night. There were about 35 heads in the place at one point.
