1978 Tribute Show: Local talent taking you back for one night only

In 1978, the first cellular phone was introduced in Illinois, the average cost for a gallon of gas was 63 cents, and the phrase ”Drinking the Kool-Aid” was birthed after 900 members of a cult led by Jim Jones were ordered to commit mass suicide. It was a wild, explosive year to say the least. 

But on Friday night, the return of the Tribute Show at The Pyramid Scheme will see the popular music series turn its gaze to 1978 with a killer list classic albums performed by local musicians.

Selected to be performed this Friday are the following albums:

This Year's Model (Elvis Costello)
Man-Machine (Kraftwerk)
Outlandos d'Amour (Police)
s/t (Van Halen)
Darkness on the Edge of Town (Bruce Springsteen)

Each of these albums selected hold critical acclaim but also incredible memories for what they brought to the music landscape of listeners. The chance to hear them live and in this album format is truly a rare experience. 

What should not be overlooked is that part of the charm of seeing our local artists on stage is how they choose to interpret the music. For the 1978 Tribute Show, the following artists will be taking part in bringing this one-night-only performance of these classic albums to life:

Charity Lytle
