Why couldn't they bother to put the EU dates in the newsletter? WHY?

I know, very peculiar. They're not even on the ZPZ Tour page at Zappa.com. But they can be found at DZ World...or here: http://idiotbastard.com/BastardDiary.htm :)

It's exactly that sort of actions that caused me to miss out on ZPZ last year. When they were playing Utrecht. A date I asked for since it was closer to home than cursed Hengelo.

NEWS FROM SAINT-HYACINTHE. . .
(don't worry Gail, your son is fine)

ZPZ played in my hometown, I wasn't supposed to go but I felt like I would let Dweezil down if I didn't find a way to skip a day at the office. So I lied and I was able to go with my wife (who's not a fan of Zappa - she mostly find him arrogant !?!). I worked on Tuesday in Quebec city, the day of the show, and traveled 200 Km to arrive a bit before the show. I took Friday off.

We were about 250 peoples in the theatre. Saint-Hyacinthe is not a very large city. Considering the crowd, and the expenses he must face, I'm not sure Dweezil will ever be back but I hope he'll be if he puts up another show.

The show was perfect. Maybe not the perfect soundind system for the vocals often lost in the mix however. He and his band played Roxy "à la perfection". At the BeBop Tango part of the show, Dweezil, using his quiet and mass-destructive charm, convinced 3 ladies to dance up on stage (2 mid-thirties one, and one mid-forty who raise to the occasion to give a gentle kiss on the cheek to Dweezil, and take off her shirt while dancing-I personnaly think that lady was having a "coup de chaleur" regarding the way she gave it all she's got - By the way she wore a black brassiere and I thought she was perhaps trying to emulate the LP cover).

Clean Fun Fun Fun for everyone. And he, Dweezil, even convince a guy to dance with the ladies. I also guess Dweezil had some taste of our national cuisine cause "the secret word for tonight" was "poutine". The male dancer even got named that way.

We had a show that started a little bit after 20:00 and ended at 23:20 with a 20 minutes intermission. And my wife liked it. She said she liked the general circus atmosphere and that the guys upstage were really talented musicians. She particulary took notice of "Don't you ever wash that thing". Miracles do happen I guess...

I would have wanted to chat a bit with Dweezil. I wondered if he reads the forum. I wanted to tell him I am Mij. Would that ring a bell with him ? I'll never know cause we were both really tired and there were too many people waiting to meet him. So, time to go to bed.

We spent a wonderful evening. Many thanks to Dweezil, the charming guy (ask the ladies). He conquered us all, he's a brillant guitar player (his sound was amazing). Hope to see him again soon !
:D :) 8)

Yeah I noticed Dweezil's effect with the ladies when I showed my 2006 pics around. You know, back in the day I still used APS film.

Sounds great! I can travel cheap, so I might be going 'n all :)

Okay, so I think ZPZ should be in Europe by now, amirite? I sincerely hope someone can within the subsequent few days to couple of weeks provide feedback as to whether the new Road Tapes 2 is available at the merch table.

HOB Anaheim is only $30 GA if you go to the box office. Soundcheck is probably another $30. I did it once.

The Canyon Club is a great addition to the tour. Another intimate venue that is conducive in the trade to as you say... audience participation. If there's anything I love....
