We are thrilled to be welcoming Pygmy Twylyte to our stage on Friday 16th February 2024, a Scottish 8-piece navigating the expansive discography of the legendary Frank Zappa with gusto.

So prolific was Frank Zappa’s output, that it is nearly impossible to present a representative sample of his work in just one concert. Over the course of his life, and since his death in 1993, over one hundred official Zappa albums have been released, alongside countless bootlegs. These range from 60’s psychedelia with the Mothers of Invention, Jazz and Rock material tinged with Zappa’s own inimitable spin, through to orchestral compositions performed by the London Symphony Orchestra, among others.

Since their inception in 2018 Pwgymy Twylyte have embraced Zappa’s back-catalogue, taking it to the stage and selected a core body of classic material, complemented with a rotating offering of more obscure cuts, and blasted this to delighted audiences across the UK. With guitars, keyboards, saxes and multiple vocalists at their disposal as part of an eight-piece line up, the band has a (stink)foot planted in the camp of several of Zappa’s most memorable touring line-ups. Get down to nod along to rock numbers, lose count during jazzy interludes (after all, it’s not dead – it just smells funny) and evade the infamous Frunobulax!

Tickets on sale now.
