Dark Side Of The Mountain | A Pink Floyd Tribute

This December Grace Potter & The Nocturnals drummer Matt Burr will lead a project he's put together called Dark Side Of The Mountain to pay tribute to the music of Pink Floyd at four performances in Vermont.

Burr and fellow Vermonter Bob Wagner will lead an ensemble of local Vermont musicians including Daniel Munzing and Josh Weinstein, along with special guests, to cover Floyd on three consecutive Wednesdays at Nectar's in Burlington, followed by a grand finale on December 29 at Burlington's Club Metronome. JamBase favorite Marco Benevento will perform with the band on the 29th, the only ticketed event of the run, as the Nectar's shows are free.

According to a statement, "The show will pay tribute to a wide array of songs from the Pink Floyd catalog, including Obscured By Clouds and songs from the Syd Barrett era. A projection based light show will also accompany the musical performance." Burr added, "I’ll never forget the first time I heard Animals and Dark Side of the Moon as a kid. It was a space ship for my brain, with pristine arrangements, tones, harmonies, solos, and chords. Every note was golden, and no one ever over-played. All of their albums continue to blow my mind, especially their masterful work in the 70’s. The brilliant meat and potatoes drumming of Nick Mason has played a huge role in my development as a drummer."

Dark Side Of The Mountain dates:

December 4, 11 and 18 @ Nectar's - Burlington, VT
December 29 w/ Marco Benevento @ Club Metronome - Burlington, VT

Speaking of Floyd covers, yesterday we posted video of Dopapod's sensational take on "Echoes."
