Seeing live music can be a transcendent mind-body experience, akin to getting a tattoo underwater, or making out during an eclipse. Transcend boredom with today's Groupon: for $20, you get a ticket to the Pink Floyd Experience at the Electric Factory on February 22 at 8 p.m. and an Electric Factory T-shirt (a $46 total value). The ticket and T-shirt can be picked up at the box office any time during box office hours or on the day of the show.
For the past 40 years, the Electric Factory has been Philly’s go-to spot for an eclectic array of live music. The venue provides ideal conditions for the time-machine magic of the Pink Floyd Experience. A super-fan-approved cover band resurrects the intimate, theatrical feel of Pink Floyd's legendary lives shows. The combination of masterful guitar-work, hi-fi sound, and a metamorphic light show electrifies "Another Brick in the Wall" into a psychedelic manifesto. The slow-burning groove of "Money" unfurls in the sensuous space of the club, and "Wish You Were Here" is tuned to the quivering heartstrings of fellow Floyd followers. Bring a friend or embark on a solitary soul quest guided only by a talking band-aid and the light and sound of one of the most influential rock bands in history.
