A FRANK Zappa tribute band is heading to Tweeddale next month.

Hosted by Peebles Rugby Club, Pygmy Twylyte is set for its first appearance in the Borders.

And the band will be performing a host of classics.

A spokesperson for the concert said: “So prolific was Frank Zappa’s output, that it is nearly impossible to present a representative sample of his work in just one concert. 

“Nevertheless, Pygmy Twylyte present an unmissable evening of Zappa ‘classics’, if indeed such things exist. 

“Zappa’s ’70s and ’80s work is the main showcase, though there is the occasional foray into his late ’60s material. 

“Expect some well-known tunes such as Cosmik Debris, Stinkfoot and Outside Now, interspersed with instrumentals like Black Napkins and Zoot Allures. The seven-strong band will surely bring something to suit everyone’s tastes, and maybe even a little of Zappa’s trademark wit on the side.”

The show starts at 8.30pm, on Friday, February 9 with The Derivatives opening. Tickets, which are £7 in advance or £10 on the door, are available now from the club or the Three Fishes Gallery in Peebles.
