Zappa Bust to be Unveiled in Baltimore on 9/19


Details of events were announced today for the unveiling of a sculpture of Frank Zappa and celebration honoring the composer for the legacy of his music and his commitment to the First Amendment. September 19, 2010 marks the 25th anniversary of Zappa's testimony on Capitol Hill and at Annapolis against the censorship of free expression by artists. In commemoration of this event, Zappa Records is preparing to release Congress Shall Make No Law, a CD containing Frank Zappa's testimony. As part of the celebrations, the Mayor's office will issue a proclamation moving annual 'Frank Zappa Day' to September 19 in Baltimore.

Frank Zappa's son Dweezil Zappa will headline a special concert with his Grammy Award-winning band, Zappa Plays Zappa. The stretch of Eastern Avenue between Conkling and Eaton Streets in the heart of the Highlandtown Arts and Entertainment District will be marked 'Frank Zappa Way' with a ceremonial street sign to be unveiled for the dedication. The events, including the outdoor dedication and concerts, are open to the public at no charge.

Although the dedication ceremony and the concert are FREE to the public, special VIP passes for the concert are available at (keyword Zappa), providing access to a reserved viewing enclosure close to the concert stage, talent meet-and-greets, and other fan incentives.
