the Dweezil Zappa newsletter:
It's summer time again and that means the we have our bags packed and we're heading out to play more of the world's finest optional entertainment for all of you who are interested.
What can you expect from us this time around? A lot of new material and visits to a few great new cities around the world.
We have added an additional keyboardist once again. His name is Chris Norton. He sings well too. We've learned several new songs that we've never played on tour and we've brought back a few we haven't played in a while.
Here are just a few of the new ones. Pick Me I'm Clean, The Blue Light, Big Swifty, Easy Meat, Blessed Relief, The Little House I Used To Live In.
