Dark Side of the Moon

I remember the first time I heard Pink Floyd. I had brought up my parent’s record player and some records to my bedroom — I was 13 years old. I don’t think you ever forget when the first time you hear Dark Side of the Moon…and thus has changed my perspective on music forever. Pink Floyd became one of my few, very top favorite bands to this day.

When I found out Roger Waters was going to be in town, nonetheless performing Dark Side, I had tears in my eyes from excitement (sounds dramatic, but I assure you very true). It didn’t take much to convince my husband to give me a very early birthday present 🙂

Dark Side of the Moon

The show was unbelievable. Set 1 consisted of Floyd classics and a few solo songs. Set 2 was Dark Side of the Moon in its entirety. Encore included Comfortable Numb — a flying pig (during Sheep) and lasers (during DSOTM) made their appropriate appearances too. Screen graphics were top quality.

Anyway, you bet I picked up this program — eloquently designed in a slip cover with amazing graphics and typography, this will last way longer than a t-shirt (bought a t-shirt anyway).

Didn’t want to sneak in my camera, so here are some pics from my Treo.
