Zappafest — Dec. 10

Zappafest is an annual Milwaukee tradition since 1999 and makes its return this year to where it started — Shank Hall. Local bands, including Dr. Chow’s Love Medicine and Gozortenplat, will fill the evening with Frank Zappa’s compositions. Zappa had a strong fan base in Milwaukee, and this fest always features an appreciative crowd.

8 p.m. on Dec. 10 at Shank Hall in Milwaukee; $10; shankhall.com
