1997 Tribute Show: Twenty years to this moment


If you live long enough you will soon  watch your childhood tunes become the stuff nostalgia shows re-discover and (often) repackage for a new generation.

One area of this revival trend that has roots in other cities as well as ours, is the tribute show. 

For the 1997 Tribute Show at the Pyramid Scheme our area’s performers from a variety of music acts have organized into popular acts. All told nearly 30 local music acts have contributed their talent to this night’s line up. 

Featured on Friday at this one night only performance will be the albums released in 1997 and will include “Spiceworld” by The Spice Girls, “Third Eye Blind” by Third Eye Blind, “Homogenic" by Bjork, “OK Computer” by Radiohead, and “Dude Ranch” by Blink 182. 

And while it is true that some will attempt faithful recreations of these popular albums, these tribute events often produce unexpected joys as modern advances in our sonic revolution opens new ways of sharing these classic albums from 1997. 

In between acts will be 1997-themed DJ sets spun by Scintillate, which is sure to include Hanson, so you will never have to leave the dreamy period of this year until the last act has finished around 1 a.m.

As someone who has attended numerous tribute shows from Fleetwood Mac’s “Rumors” to Miles Davis’ “Bitches Brew” to the memorable 2016 tribute to David Bowie, don’t miss this opportunity to see so much good music in one place this Friday night.
