Did you know that the small village of Rijkevorsel (Belgium) has its own Zappa fanclub? It may not be the biggest Zappa fanclub around, but both of its members are friends of mine, so it's a pretty neat group.
And there's more to Rijkevorsel. It's also the home of one of the finest jazz clubs: 'De Singer'. Coming up soon at De Singer is Endangered Blood, a quartet from NY that includes drummer Jim Black, bass player Trevor Dunn, and reed players Chris Speed and Oscar Noriega.
