Dates for your diary

Okay here’s a reminder of a few forthcoming Beefheart-related happenings:

The Magic Band on tour

John French will be leading The Magic Band for two shows next week:

  • Thursday 14 July (Mark Boston’s birthday!) – Under The Bridge, Fulham, UK –
  • Friday 15 July – Zappanale #27, Bad Doberan, Germany –

Don Van Vliet Art Exhibition

Flora, Fauna and Other Forms of Life opens on the 8 July at Michael Werner Gallery in London and remains on view until 17 September.

Gallery hours are Tuesday through Friday, 10AM to 6PM. For more information please contact the gallery at

This is  a group exhibition which will include one or two of Don’s pieces. I’m guessing that it will be similar to the exhibition last year at this gallery.

Orange Claw Hammer play Beefheart

The very excellent band Orange Claw Hammer will be performing their jazz influenced take on the Beefheart catalogue at the Edinburgh Fringe again this year.

Check them out on 12 & 19 August 2016 at Henry’s Cellar Bar, Morrison Street, Edinburgh

Tickets available here –
