Rising from the ranks of the NW's underground music scene, Portland Oregon's Pigs on the Wing enters their 13th trip around the sun as the NW United States' undisputed premier tribute to Pink Floyd. Since the band's debut one-off performance in October 2006, Pigs on the Wing has steadily developed a reputation for delivering a high quality, high energy take on Pink Floyd's music and balancing a decidedly un-tribute like attitude towards the music with a deep understanding of the importance of Pink Floyd's music 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. Pigs on the Wing's intense live performances are an expansive audio-visual experience that has expanded from regional shows to include a commanding presence in the Western United States including Oregon, Washington, Idaho, and California.
Animals 2019: Pigs on the Wing has long considered Animals to be their defining experience of Floyd ( not to mention the band's namesake) - and perhaps the album best suited to their own high energy take on Floyd's catalog. Fans can expect Pigs on the Wing to deliver a precise, hard-hitting, true-to-the-music performance of the classic 1977 Animals album melded seamlessly with Pigs on the Wing's trademark willingness to explore the improvisational side of Pink Floyd's music - and to let their own musical strengths guide the journey. This year's show will additionally showcase a second full set of carefully curated Pink Floyd music from throughout the Roger Waters era - including the hits and some deep cuts as well - and an immersive audio-visual concert experience not to be missed.
