On Sunday night, we set the controls for the heart of the sun by playing tribute to Pink Floyd.
An interesting aside: If you thumb carefully through Nick Mason’s memoir Inside Out – A Personal History of Pink Floyd (Phoenix, 2004), you will learn that Floyd’s first single was called ‘This Is It‘.
Of course, we had no idea when we cut our album. But the fact that it was launched in March of 1967 makes for an eerie and happy coincidence. A coincidence that will make itself felt this ides of March.
Organised by Globosport and sponsored by Seagrams, this series of eight tribute concerts to great artists by different bands have been unfolding in Bangalore at Take 5. We take on Floyd on Sunday night, March 15.
Take 5, Indiranagar (above Cafe Coffee Day, 100 ft Road ).
8 PM onwards.
ERROR REGRETTED: The latest issue of our newsletter ThermalAndAQuarterly wrongly mentioned this was a Rolling Stone Tribute gig. In fact, the show is sponsored by Seagrams and organised by Globosport. We’re really sorry about the mixup and for the hard feelings we may have caused. Hope nobody was hurt.
As for us, we need to catch up on sleep.
