ASTORIA — Pigs on the Wing, a Portland-based Pink Floyd tribute band, will play “The Wall” at the Astoria Event Center (255 9th St.) 9 p.m. Friday, Aug. 11. Doors open at 8:30 p.m.
Tickets for the all-ages show cost $15 in advance, $20 the day of the show, and are available through brownpapertickets.com.
Arguably Pink Floyd’s best-known and most controversial work, “The Wall” shows an entirely different side of the band than earlier, more space-rock and psychedelic pieces, according to press materials.
“‘The Wall’ is a beautiful, yet angry, emotionally, socially and politically charged piece showcasing the pinnacle of Roger Waters’ work as a composer and lyricist with Pink Floyd,” a release reads. “A concept album through and through, ‘The Wall’ follows the madness, isolation, violence and slide into fascism of the fictional character Pink in an intense first person narrative portrayal.”
