The first stop of our Zappanale road trip was Hamburg. It has been like this since the Bach Organ Society started organizing concerts in the St Katharina Church. Sort of the unofficial opening of the Zappanale festivities. Always on a Wednesday.
Thursday took us to Bad Doberan, the little town that hosts the Zappanale festival. The festival itself takes place some three kilometers from the center, on the horse race track, but the exposition and most of the hotels are located in Bad Doberan center. And every year, on Thursday, there's the so-called "warm-up party" with a couple of bands taking the stage in the town's square (which actually is a small park), some events in the (movie) theater, and, best of all, a gathering of friends.

Gabby Zappa Hey! kicked off the concert series with some excellent Zappa/punk mash-ups.
I loved it.

It's the part with the wigs, not to be confused with the fake mustaches...
