Music can soothe one’s fiery temper, propel a rousing dance, or distract a roommate long enough so you can sell his television at a pawnshop. Experience the stunning power of sound with today's GrouponLive deal: for $15, you get one mezzanine-level ticket to see the Pink Floyd tribute band The Machine at the Wilbur Theatre on Saturday, August 13, at 8:30 p.m. (a $25 value before fees, or up to a $30.35 value online, including all Ticketmaster fees).
The Machine recreates the sights and sounds of Pink Floyd concerts from the 1970s and '80s, drawing praise from SPIN for its likeness to the real deal. For the past 20 years, the band has extracted hits and obscure gems from Pink Floyd's 16-album catalog, polishing each until it gleams like diamond-studded braces. Known for improvisational jams and performances of entire Floyd albums, the quartet has become a staple at festivals around the world, including Bonnaroo in the U.S. and Rock of Ages in Germany. Fans will experience the dazzling onstage performance from mezzanine-level seats as the act unveils dramatic videos and light displays. "Time," "Money," and other tunes from Pink Floyd's psychedelic 1973 classic The Dark Side of the Moon are likely to rule the show, as The Machine just released its own rendition of the album during a trip to Mars.
Built in 1914, the recently revitalized Wilbur Theatre showcases some of the city's finest examples of American Colonial architecture. The theater's convenient theater-district location makes it an ideal place to enjoy an evening of hanging out with family members, play-watching with friends, or challenging pet snakes to staring contests.
