Fri, September 8, 2017 Revolution Hall Presents The Church, The Helio Sequence
Saturday, September 9, 2017 Pigs On a Wing at Revolution Hall
Pigs on the Wing brings an intense, high energy experience to the table that is both true to the original and unapologetic in its interpretation, something which the band members believe has set it apart from the other tributes from the very beginning. Since its inception in 2006 as a one-off performance of Dark Side of the Moon, to the band’s current touring production which has included live renditions of the infamous Wizard of Oz sync, full performances of multiple Floyd albums, and music from every era of Pink Floyd’s career, Pigs on the Wing heavily emphasizes the rock dynamics and psychedelic intensity of 1970s era Floyd.

Saturday, September 9, 2017 Tumbledown at Skyline Tavern
Hailing from the east and west coasts, Tumbledown formed to take a dying breed of music – classic rock-and-roll – and “make it new.” Spiced with Americana, alt-country and pop, the band takes you on a journey through dark ballads, sweet love songs and rollicking road anthems.
