It's a Jazz Fest Free-for-All from WXXI and the Little Theatre! Every night of the Jazz Fest, we're proud to bring you a free screening of a jazz film. On Thursday, June 28 at 8 p.m. join us for a free screening of Zappa Plays Zappa.

The wonderfully inventive music of Frank Zappa is brought back to life in ZAPPA PLAYS ZAPPA. Spearheaded by Frank's son, ace guitarist Dweezil Zappa, this concert special captures some of the best musical numbers from the acclaimed Zappa Plays Zappa tour. Dweezil and his virtuosic band (including guest guitarist Steve Vai) blister through a live performance of some of Frank Zappa's greatest songs, such as "Pound for a Brown" and "I'm the Slime."
