Over the last few years, The Pyramid Scheme (PS) has been hosting a locally unique live music series that asks our local musicians to pair up with other act’s members to form super acts who will for one night gather to perform a classic album from the year they are honoring.
Last year at this time, we gathered at The Scheme (nickname for PS) to hear these pop-up acts cover from front to back 1998’s album releases from artists Nada Surf, Hole, Refused, and Fatboy Slim.
This year’s Tribute Show
series visits the year 1999 and will be showcasing the entire album in performance American Football’s “LP1,” Built To Spill’s “Keep It Like A Secret,” Fiona Apple’s “When The Pawn…,” and Rage Against The Machine’s iconic "The Battle of Los Angeles."
The doors open at 7:00pm and should tickets be available you can slide into line to see if you can gain a $15 day-of show ticket. But folks who have been in the past and want to ensure their entry (as it has sold out often in the past) can purchase online here
in advance of show-day $10 ticket.
And before folks start thinking, “Maybe I will bring the kids to hear a beloved, classic album from 1999,” this is a 21-or-older show.
Tribute Show’s proceeds from this show will benefit our Community Media Center, where community-supported radio station WYCE
88.1 FM lives, as well as the Wealthy Theatre
, The Rapidian
, and so much more!
