3 DIFFERENT ONES:
In the past 7 years Pinky and the Floyd has earned a reputation as one of the best Pink Floyd Tribute bands in the Northwest, playing sold out shows in Montana, Idaho, and Wyoming. Locals know Pinky as a Montana staple in the music scene with Bozeman crowds reaching 5,000+ including die-hard fans ranging in ages from 5 to 95.
Leave it to Pinky and the Floyd to give an audience what they want! Following their theater show in 2015 (The Division Bell), Pinky decided to pull material from the early PF catalog. However, when faced with having to choose between the three highest selling PF albums they decided it would be so much more satisfying to rise to the challenge and perform all 3 albums in 3 sets, back to back, to back.
Darkside of the Moon, Wish You Were Here, and Animals (released ’73, ’75, ’77 respectively) are arguably some of, if not the top three most well known Pink Floyd albums (trading rank with The Wall, depending on the source). Though Pink Floyd broke up nearly two decades ago they never really went away. Their massive appeal continues to draw sold-out stadiums in large part due to these three timeless and powerful concept albums. What these three albums did to elevate the sonic landscape, to place squarely at the forefront issues of humanity, society and politics, and expand the artistic intention of rock-n-roll bands is unparalleled and undisputed.
DARKSIDE OF THE MOON (1973) chronicles the various stages of human life. Beginning and ending with a heartbeat, it touches on greed, conflict, the passage of time, death and insanity. A pioneering concept album, Darkside displays a textural and conceptual richness which not only invites, but demands involvement from its listener.
WISH YOU WERE HERE (1975) presents a critique of the music business and weaves throughout the theme of alienation (one among many references/tributes to founding member Syd Barrett whose struggle with mental illness finally forced him to quit the band) and is widely regarded as Pink Floyd’s magnum opus.
ANIMALS (1977) presents an almost Orwellian commentary on class structure, a nihilistic statement against the prevailing social/political conditions, and a reaction to the general complacency and nostalgia that surrounded rock music of that time.
All tickets are general admission standing room only with fixed theatre seating available in the balcony on a first come, first served basis.
