3th International Conference on Frank Zappa in Paris, july 5 & 6
http://lesfilsdelinvention.net/

Image

If you can't read a fuckin' word of French, please note the following : You don't have to join Les Fils De l'invention to attend the International Zappa Conference we organize in July. People who join now want to help us make the event happen and will enjoy other benefits such as the right to receive the new issue of our born again deluxe fanzine Le Pingouin Ligoté. Basically, if you're interested in coming, all you have to do is… come (but please, don't get no jizz upon that sofa, sofa). Charge for admission will be reasonable, not more than 10 euros per day, maybe less. If you look for decent accomodation in nearby hotels, please see with Rhonda, who is currently negotiating prices around 60 euros per night for a double room including breakfast.
Please also note we're not setting up a music festival but a conference. Only two cover groups are programmed, which are new brilliant French outfits : one will play around 8 pm on the 5th, the other one will start at 6 pm on Sunday the 6th. A dynamite one-woman show will open the Saturday concert. The rest of the days will be crammed with lectures, panel discussions, live musical interludes, various performances, games, films, poodle activities... Lectures and discussions will be delivered in English or in French. French will be instantly and approximately translated in English. Food and drinks will be available on the premises.
Last but not least : an opening aperitif is planned for the 4th in the evening. It will take place in the only Zappa café in Paris (see picture), 115 rue Oberkampf, next to the hotels you might have booked through Rhonda.
Don't miss it, it's a way of life.

Dont forget that Universal Music belongs to Vivendi which is a FRENCH company.

Of course it's a no-brainer to realise that JAZZ Magazine belongs to Vivendi ! If you subscribe to the magazine this month you get your choice of a FZ CD as a gift.

Have to say that they are pushing the Zappa re-issues nicely here in France. It is great to find two,three even four rows of FZ cd's at the local media stores.

As for the new "Understanding America" cd....get over it people, it's not for you! It's for the young'uns that are un-AWARE of the stuff lurking under the floorboards that we all know about!

Th.
It was an amazing event with many crazy people such as the Alma Ensemble, Evil Dick, Peach Noise, Ben Watson and others.
And I haven't heard about anybody getting sued :D
Actually I do not see any real reason why anybody should have been.
