Imagine the energy and electric intensity of "Dark Side of the Moon"-era Pink Floyd in an intimate theater or rock club environment. Hailing from Portland, Pigs on the Wing (POTW) has been delivering that spellbinding experience to audiences throughout the Northwest since 2006.

Far from an attempt at Floyd-impersonation, POTW specializes in 70's-era Floyd but is unapologetic in the interpretation and improvisation of the music in ways that the band believes any Pink Floyd fan will appreciate. Rather than always obsessing over exact, note-for-note replication of Floyd albums or any sort of look-alike mimicry of band members, POTW rather seeks to capture the intense atmosphere and rock energy of Pink Floyd in as unpretentious a style as possible. The result is a show which is true to the original and yet also a refreshing take on the music and experience of Pink Floyd.

Pigs on the Wing performs two sets of classic Pink Floyd, including a live version of the infamous Dark Side of the Moon/Wizard of Oz sync on Saturday, April 20, at the Belfry (302 E. Main Ave.). Tickets are $10 at the door only; show time is 8 p.m., all ages are welcome.
