Pigs on the Wing is Portland’s refreshingly unique Pink Floyd tribute band—while any Pink Floyd devotee will certainly appreciate the psychedelic rock and Floyd-esque stylings of Pigs on the Wing, don’t expect them to sound exactly like the original band. Instead, the tribute band expresses its own take on Pink Floyd’s music while seeking to “capture the intense atmosphere and rock energy of Pink Floyd in as unpretentious a style as possible.”
Pigs on the Wing will be gracing downtown Corvallis’ Majestic Theatre on Saturday, Sept. 8 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $12 in advance and $14 at the door (this is a 21+ event). The tribute band will play the famous “Dark Side of the Rainbow” set, purported to uncannily synchronize Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon album with the visuals of The Wizard of Oz, although Pink Floyd band members have repeatedly shot down the idea that the album was written with the film in mind. Beautiful coincidence or psychedelic karma? Either way, it’s a super-entertaining, high-energy experience that any Pink Floyd fan, and anyone at all who claims to love ‘70s rock, definitely shouldn’t miss.
