Pinky and the Floyd: Retrospective
At The Wilma on September 22nd, 2017, Logjam Presents welcomes back the familiar sounds of Pinky and the Floyd, a montana-based tribute to Pink Floyd. This special performance titles “Retrospective”, and will feature a comprehensive, chronological musical history of Pink Floyd from 1967-2014.
About the Retrospective concept
Ret·ro·spec·tive: (defined as) – an exhibition or compilation showing the development of the work of a particular artist over a period of time.
The “Pink Floyd Retrospective” carefully chooses songs from every studio album in the Pink Floyd catalog, some for the story, others for their pioneering direction in Rock music as we know it. Beginning with the psychedelic, Syd Barrett-influenced pieces of Piper at the Gates of Dawn and the like from 1967 on, through the flagship hits of “Dark Side of the Moon” and “The Wall” in the 1970’s & 80’s, and culminating with the hugely anthematic, orchestral-like instrumentation of their last albums; “Momentary Lapse of Reason” and “The Division Bell.” And let’s not forget the cherry on top… the completely retrospective work from 2014, “The Endless River.”
You can expect 3 hours of music ranging from the earliest Pink Floyd music to the most recent 2014 release with touches of the current Gilmour & Waters Tours.
Get your tickets early, mark your calendars, and spread the word!
