House of Floyd, California's premier Pink Floyd tribute, rocks Walnut Creek. Founded by a group of veteran Bay Area musicians and audio-visual technicians -- including ex-Gregg Allman band member Mark Showalter -- House of Floyd focuses on recreating the original act's live concert experience, from note-perfect renderings of the band's hits and classic album cuts, to lasers, computer graphics, animation, video and even the inflatable pig. They've played more than a hundred shows since their founding in 2005. Pink Floyd are still rock radio staples, with hits like "Another Brick in the Wall," "Comfortably Numb," "Money" and more.

Attn East Bay Locals: This is not your grandma's night at the ballet. Company C combines the beauty of classical ballet with stage theatre, the mesmerizing movements of a Cirque-du-Soleil-style show, and a little Led Zeppelin. Well worth seeing.

Weather One (World Premiere)
Former American Ballet Theater star Susan Jaffe takes exhilarating classical technique beyond its boundaries with a world premiere set to the music of Weather One, one of the first movements of a string sextet by Michael Gordon that was inspired by the chaotic scheme of weather patterns. Made possible in part by a generous grant from the Diablo Regional Arts Association.
Nine Person Precision Ball Passing
Part dance and part living puzzle, Nine Person Precision Ball Passing is a taut and riveting exploration of the finer points of movement.
__Zhukov’s Railroad Joint was a hit of Company C’s 2013 Gala performance, and this expanded version will now take its place on the main stage. The superbly athletic dancing is set to a trance-like score that combines electronic music with train sounds.
__An audience favorite in 2013, Anderson’s signature movement essay to Ravel’s iconic score completes the program.
