The weather was warm. I wore jeans.

The Grove is a challenging space to play in, and seating is uncomfortable since dinner tables are set up so that you end up sitting perpendicular to the stage. Certainly you can move your chair, but if it's a full house, it is hard to maneuver so that you are not blocking people.

I loved it until the movie was halfway over, then it abruptly stopped. The description plainly stated that we would watch the Wizard of Oz, at no time did it state we would only watch half of the Wizard of Oz then the band would play their own...continued

Quotes & Highlights

“The ultimate jam” from “America’s best-known Pink Floyd tribute band.” —Washington Post
“Dark Side of the Moon” had the longest chart run in the history of Billboard magazine.

Description

Pink Floyd fans have long known about the eerie relationship between the seminal album “Dark Side of the Moon” and The Wizard of Oz.

Come experience this unqiue happening as The Machine (“America’s premier Pink Floyd tribute band”) performs Pink Floyd’s “Dark Side of the Moon” live with a special synchronized viewing of The Wizard of Oz.

Don’t miss such incredible moments of synchronicity such as:

  • As the line “balanced on the biggest wave” from “Breathe” is uttered, Dorothy teeters on the rail fence to the hog pens. “On the Run” begins immediately after Dorothy falls off the fence, and she turns around and looks down just as the lyrics “look around, choose your own ground” are sung.
  • Dorothy breaks into a trot just as the line “no one told you when to run” from “Time” is heard.
  • “The Great Gig in the Sky” begins as the tornado appears and lasts exactly the length of the storm.
  • The cha-ching of the cash register in “Money” is heard just as the movie shifts from black-and-white to color.
  • When the brainless Scarecrow first appears to sing “If I Only Had a Brain,” “Brain Damage” is playing, including the line “Got to keep the loonies on the path” as the Scarecrow skips down the Yellow Brick Road.
  • The album ends with a slowly beating heartbeat, just as Dorothy bangs on the Tin Man’s chest (seemingly on the beat) to see if he has a heart.
