Any Boston Zappa fans? Wanted to start a conversation about Zappa-influenced groups on the east coast.

I thought all Boston fans only went to see the Boston Pops ... who will never play Frank Zappa!

Just slightly to the noth of Boston heah, Toddowhams & c.! We'd better make it quick before Hizzonna Mayor Menino finally gets his way 'cause the Mayor don't want no music around here! (Clubs topple like dominoes! Boston's soon going to be the biggest Major Metropolitan Bedroom Community in the U. S.of A.! :evil: :twisted:

Not a chance -- but Keith Lockhart & The Boston Symphony worked in, "G-Spot Tornado"!

Hey! I've got distant cousins in Nova Scotia that I'm sure I could never find! (Oh, BTW, does Boston seem that close to you, tiboudre?)

No immediate name familiarity but I could search him out if he's a columnist for one of the Boston rags. (Hah! The only "Dale" I know of from Boston is none other than "Dale Bozzio", originally from Somerville, MA -- right outside Boston.) As for "Keiger" he might write for the Boston Phoenix or The Weekly Dig.
But I'll have a look!

Let me put it this way, Batchain: Halifax is closer to Boston than Newfoundland.

Boston sucks. One the worst if not THE worst city in America. And that half-a-retard accent is fucking enraging!!

Your Mom likes it.

I am from Providence RI bout 45 min. away. Been to see ZPZ in Boston twice, and in Providence twice. The Boston shows usually get a much better turnout, and much better audience enthusiasum.

I have a humble amount of friends in the area, but i'm the only one (that I know of) that actually like Zappa.

Don't think there is much of a Zappa following in RI, Boston seems like it would have more of a following.

Never thought we'd agree on anything, JayPeePee! It's a drying up piss town run by dickless pricks and concrete cunts! (I'm trying to get back my "Bostonese Accent" 'cause it suddenly sounded good to me! Like Dale Bozzio's!)

If there's less of an FZ following anywhere than there is in Boston then it's none, NicHoLai. Even P/O doesn't get close anymore -- they play out in Amhearst (actually Northampton) where there's a UMASS crowd.

Well P.O. played Pawtucket 2 years in a row (awesome shows!!! I had YouTube videos up the yazoo, but GZ made me take them down) but they are not rolling through this year.

I know you're not supposed to do shit like this but I'm going to *BUMP* this thread up in the event a few stray FZ Maniac-Persons from Boston & surrounding areas wander in. Maybe?
