PIGS ON THE WING –
A TRIBUTE TO PINK FLOYD
“Capturing what made Pink Floyd iconic is a hard thing to do, and Pigs on the Wing come as close as anyone we’ve heard. That looming mystique, that inscrutable grandiosity......Those qualities are alive and well with Pigs on the Wing.” - Adam McKinney, OLY ARTS 5/10/17
Portland, Oregon based Pink Floyd tribute Pigs on the Wing is pleased to announce their 2018 production, 'Finding the Dark Side of the Moon' – a 2 set retrospective live experience culminating in a full performance of Pink Floyd's 1973 concept album The Dark Side of the Moon.
Tracing its roots to a one-off performance in Portland in 2006, Pigs on the Wing has steadily developed a reputation for delivering a high quality, high energy take on Pink Floyd's music steeped in the NW's own rich musical heritage. All of the members of the band are seasoned veterans of the original rock scene and balance a decidedly un-tribute like attitude towards the music with a deep understanding of the precision and importance of Pink Floyd in many fans' lives. The result is a sound and experience both refreshing in delivery and yet true to the original – something the band believes sets it apart from other Pink Floyd tributes.
Finding the Dark Side of the Moon: After immersing themselves in the polished rock theatrics of The Wall during the 2017 season – the band felt it was time to try something different. Pigs on the Wing's 2018 production - 'Finding the Dark Side of the Moon', represents a full circle in some ways. As the band's 2 remaining original members Matt Jones and Jason Baker relate, Pigs on the Wing's very first show was a performance of The Dark Side of the Moon. In the ensuing 11 years, the band's regional fanbase has grown exponentially alongside the band themselves as musicians, as well as the scale of the show as an immersive audio-visual experience. This time around – expect 2 full sets of Pink Floyd – the first a loosely chronological retrospective of Pink Floyd's work before becoming a household name; and the second a full performance of what many would agree is amongst rock music's finest works from cover to cover, The Dark Side of the Moon.
Pigs on the Wing is ( L toR): Eric Welder ( bass, vocals); Pete Galluzzo ( sax); David Lindenbaum ( guitar, vocals); Matt Jones ( keys, vocals); Bryan Fairfield ( drums); Keeley St. Clair ( vocals, acoustic guitar); Jason Baker (guitar, vocals)
Rare Monk
Rare Monk is a Portland, OR based indie rock band. They just released their debut full-length album, “A Future” this summer featuring 10 brand new songs recorded in Portland, OR with Skyler Norwood (Blind Pilot, Horsefeathers, Priory) at Miracle Lake Studios.

In 2015, Rare Monk released their apocalyptic-tinged self-titled EP, produced by Tom McFall (Weezer, Bloc Party, Snow Patrol, R.E.M.). Single's "Warning Pulse" and "California (Will Burn)" received considerable attention form the blogosphere, college radio, and streaming services such as Spotify. This was the follow-up to 2014's widely lauded 7-inch "Splice/Sleep Attack". The boutique record label, B3SCI Records, released both EPs.

In 2016 Rare Monk faced several lineup changes. Their original guitarist and violist left and the once 5-piece became a 4-piece with the addition of lead guitarist and vocalist Hugh Jepson. With the addition of Jepson, Rare Monk started focusing more on writing bigger guitar parts, dueling leads, and beautiful falsetto harmonies. What resulted were ten new songs written and recorded over the course of the last year and a half.

The songs deal with death and agency – our control (both individual and as a species) of how the future will play out. “It’s easy to be deterministic – the world’s a shit show right now and it feels like all we can do is make popcorn – so there’s a lot of grappling and grasping for free will.” The songs are also a lot of fun – big guitar fun – a commitment to giant choruses as a medium to discuss humanity’s doom and how we might prevent it. If there’s a unifying theme to the album, it’s that we have control over the music we make, that band practice is chaos under our control and feedback cures all diseases.
