The Village Inn 

Trying to make a living while owning Studio Z in Cucamonga, Zappa played 
week-end gigs with a band 50 miles away at an obscure bar in Sun Village, CA, 
in about 1960. Two tracks on the FZ Mystery Disk document one such gig. 
Also, Zappa's preamble and lyrics to the song "Village Of The Sun" on the Roxy and 
Elsewhere album explain how...

...Sun Village... "out in back of Palmdale..." (about 6 miles east),

...where "Palmdale Boulevard cuts on through..." 90th Street. 
Address of the former Village Inn: 8734 East Palmdale Blvd, Littlerock, CA. 
Hopefully, a photo will be appearing soon...
