Yep, it's a short sale. Radar station has the full story. The seller is really taking a bath on it.

Gary Lucas brings his CB symposium to LA (from beefheart.com):

"Gary Lucas is bringing his Beefheart Symposium to Los Angeles two days before Don's 70th birthday.

During the symposium Gary will show rare footage of the band live, play unreleased tracks, and project slides of Don's paintings and drawings, discuss the history of the group and many of the great musicians who came through the ranks of The Magic Band, and also illustrate Don’s quirky and idiosyncratic methodologies and techniques on his guitar.

So at 8pm, 13 January 2011 try to join Gary and 'special guests' at

The Echoplex
1154 Glendale Boulevard
Los Angeles 90026

Tickets: Seating - $15 adv; $17 dos / Standing - $12 adv; $14 dos / all ages"

Gary Lucas' career after Beefheart included co-writing Jeff Buckley's Grace.

I wish I were, but it's not likely. Matt Groening is a big Beefheart fan. This will probably be a really memorable event and will be the closest thing to a Beefheart tribute to happen. Stan Ridgway is supposed to participate as well.

Lucas is also doing the same gig in SF on Feb 11. I should be able to go to that, but it probably won't have all those folks there (but maybe a different set of folks, like EDF).

I know Groening is a huge Zappa fan, stands to reason that would spill over into Beefheart I guess. Well I hope you can make it out to the Frisco show Doc, I'm sure it would be a special evening.

Gail Zappa releases the original Bat Chain Puller tapes from the vault, 36 years later, on Don's birthday:

Also BBC6's Gideon Coe had a whole show last month. You can still listen to track snippets:
