Much like Civil War reenactments, rock 'n' roll tribute acts give fans the chance to experience history without lofty ticket prices or having to forge their own musket balls.

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.
Clowes Memorial Hall
For the late Dr. George Henry Alexander Clowes, the most important things in life were science and the arts. The good doctor wanted to share this devotion with the Indianapolis community, so he devised and funded Clowes Memorial Hall at Butler University. Completed in 1963, the hall shares Butler's gorgeous aesthetic with its arching stone façade and lush crimson interior, which has room for over 2,000 patrons. In addition to major touring productions and public speakers, Clowes Memorial Hall is also the home of the Indianapolis Opera, the Butler Ballet, and the Indy 500.
