Philly’s Think Pink Floyd Brings a Prog Rock Finale to 8 Great Tuesdays by Ryan Smith

Tuesday, Aug. 23

Here’s a sweet vision: You’re all kicked back, catching a sunset next to Lake Erie.

Then a laser show proceeds to blow your mind.

Add to that some expert-level live renditions from psych-prog gods Pink Floyd’s glorious catalog, and you’ve got a trip worth taking (er, making), even on a Tuesday night.

Eight Great Tuesdays is ending its 2016 run just right on Aug. 23 with a performance by Think Pink Floyd, a Philly-based tribute band. The ensemble really has its act together, impressively playing Floyd selections from the early, out-there years of Meddle (and before) all the way up through The Wall (and beyond).

This is going to be good. It’s an awesome way to complete this year’s 8 Great circle, and to celebrate – like Floyd says – all that is now.

And all that is gone.

And all that is to come.

And, indeed, all that is under the sun will be in tune – until, of course, the sun is eclipsed by the moon. – Ryan Smith

Fighting for change in our most vulnerable communities.

Running into a blazing building can be ‘terrifying,’ but some choose to do it, anyway. 

Here are three good opportunities to lighten up as the nights grow longer.

Dancing Wheels bring a world premiere to Mercyhurst.

Shapeshift With Me, relative to the band’s spectacular catalog as a whole, is certainly one of their less powerful studio albums.

Grate every road in downtown Erie all at once.

Some ‘multigrain’ bread has a little more protein than you’d like. 

Don’t just dream it. Be it!
