PleaseRock will close the show by paring Floyd’s opus with a classic movie in a live recreation of a stoner myth: The Dark Side of the Rainbow (DSOTR) is the debateably coincidental pairing of Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side of the Moon as a sound track to the first 43 minutes of The Wizard of Oz. When you press play on the Dark Side on the second lion roar before the movie begins, there are dozens of eerie ways in which the music and movie match up. It’s a musical tightrope act, since the entire band has to stay precisely lined up with the film to maintain the pacing.
Nigels With Attitude open the show with XTC's most consistent and popular album, Black Sea. N.W.A., featuring members of YRR and PPRM along with guitar artist, Peter Stroud (Sheryl Crow, Don Henley) and bassist/song-smith, Tim Smith (Sheryl Crow, Jellyfish), tackle a more refined and polished collection of works from one of the smartest -- and catchiest -- British pop bands to emerge from the punk and new wave explosion of the late '70s.
