Frank Zappa (1940-1993) cemented his connection to Austin at the Armadillo World Headquarters. Recorded live, 1975’s Bongo Fury preserves the summit of the Baltimore-born guitarist and Don Van Vliet, aka Captain Beefheart. If you missed it, hearing six-string scion Dweezil Zappa plumb the FZ catalog is the next best thing. The eclectic “Choice Cuts” tour spans decades, from Freak Out! standout “Trouble Every Day” through “Cocaine Decisions” off 1983’s The Man From Utopia.
