Rock concerts feature pyrotechnics more often than aquatechnics, mostly due to the danger of electrocution and the water solubility of drummers. Stay abreast of modern stage strategies with today’s GrouponLive deal: for $15, you get two general-admission tickets to Band Buffet, featuring Pink Floyd tribute band Which One’s Pink? and The Cars tribute band Candy-O, at The Majestic Ventura Theater on Sunday, December 11, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. (up to a $30 value). Each attendee also receives one free raffle ticket. Doors open at 10:30 a.m. Groupon holders will have standing-room tickets.
The Band Buffet concert series unveils a luminous stage that becomes a magnet for uproarious applause and fist pumps as Pink Floyd and The Cars tribute bands blast throwback tunes during an all-day jam fest that benefits philanthropic endeavors. LA-based Which One’s Pink? celebrates the psychedelic sounds of Pink Floyd with a performance of the landmark prog-rock album Dark Side of the Moon, noted for its extended solos written by a refracting prism. Candy-O captures The Cars' signature lovelorn lyrics and peppy synthesizer beats during a set fueled by '80s cue-card classic such as "Just What I Needed" and "My Best Friend's Girl." Local rocker Brion Shearer warms up the stage with catchy pop-rock tunes and a novelty-size Christmas sweater. Between sets, audience members can browse the exciting prizes at the raffle, which benefits charitable organizations such as Donate Life/ Signatures Across America and South Coast Fellowship’s Open Hands Ministry food pantry.
Although Band Buffet offers free general admission for those with birthdays in December, and $10 tickets for those in 8Minute Dating, this Groupon offers the best deal available for most attendees.
