Here’s how Wikipedia explains what we’re doing Friday at The Outburst:
“Dark Side of the Rainbow – also known as Dark Side of Oz or The Wizard of Floyd – refers to the pairing of the 1973 Pink Floyd album The Dark Side of the Moon with the visual portion of the 1939 film The Wizard of Oz.
This produces moments where the film and the album appear to correspond with each other. The title of the music video mashup-like experience comes from a combination of the album title, the album cover, and the film’s song “Over the Rainbow.” Band members and others involved in the making of the album state that any relationship between the two works of art is merely a coincidence.”
It’s so f-ing awesome. Just SO. F-ING. AWESOME. Be here, 9pm. $7 at the door, includes free popcorn.
