The senses are stuffed with aural and visual excess as English tribute act Brit Floyd re-creates the sonic mind expansion and visceral enlightenment of a real Pink Floyd concert. Backed by a quintet choir of chanteuses, the British band of highly trained virtuosos pulls out the stops for their 2013 P-U-L-S-E tour. Thanks to their skilled musicianship, loving renditions of full album sides from The Wall, The Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here, The Division Bell, and Animals come crackling to electric life. The elaborate stage setup swirls with metamorphic lasers and lighting, and avant-garde screen projections of Floydian animation, giving fans the closest thing to seeing a Pink Floyd show without being miniaturized and injected into their uncle’s subconscious.<p>
Palace of Fine Arts
Visiting the Palace of Fine Arts is like stepping into a postcard. The instantly familiar San Francisco staple inspires awe with a mélange of nature cradling Roman and Greek architecture so astounding that a miniature replica of it resides at Disney California Adventure. Scenic walkways and reflecting lagoons where migrating waterfowl check their hairdos lead to the main structure—a fictional ruin originally devised for the 1915 Panama-Pacific Exhibition. It was such a standout hit that a preservation league formed mid-fair to spare it when the other attractions were demolished. Yet that structure wasn’t designed to stand the test of time, and soon enough its walls crumbled. A mid-‘60s reconstruction restored it to its former glory, and when it was finished it became home to the Exploratorium interactive museum before becoming the Palace of Fine Arts Theater in 1970.
