In his 1989 autobiography, the late Frank Zappa opined, "A composer is a guy who goes around forcing his will on unsuspecting air molecules, often with the assistance of unsuspecting musicians." Those molecules are still vibrating to his beat at the hands of the living instruments Ugly Radio Rebellion. The band originally formed in 2002 as Uncle Meat, when guitarist Scott Schroen organized a multi-weekend musical tournament later dubbed "Zappa Survivor" that birthed the talented ensemble. Celebrating their 200th performance as Ugly Radio Rebellion, the foursome now boast a milk crate of living mustaches and a master playlist of more than 70 of Zappa's lyrically lewd, technically boggling epics, from the bluesy lament against racism, "Uncle Remus," to the more surreal "Let's Make the Water Turn Black," when the band invites the audience onstage to sing the patter-rhythm lyrics.
This peek at one of the greatest composers of the past century takes place on the intimate, time-distorting stage of The Wormhole. Taking an open-minded approach to booking, the venue might host anything from a standup comedian to a heavy-metal festival on any given weekend. No matter what act the calendar lists, the bar always boasts drink specials, including secret bargains available only by password.
