The Tygers Will Break Free at This Weekend's Pink Floyd Tribute

Posted By on Fri, May 30, 2008 at 11:28 AM

You've read about it in calendar; here's another reason why you should go to La Esquina (1000 West 25th Street) for the Urban Culture Project's musical/playacting tribute to Pink Floyd's The Wall: YOU'LL GET TO HEAR "WHEN THE TIGERS BROKE FREE!"

Floyd geeks (and World War II buffs, for that matter) will understand what a treat that'll be. Written and recorded at the same time as the original album but not released until the movie version of The Wall came out, "Tigers" (or "Tygers" as it's sometimes referred to), is about Roger Waters' dad getting killed in WWII. The song sets up the whole premise of The Wall movie and will be played close to the top of this weekend's tribute show.

If you don't get goosebumps when Waters sings that last line, "And that's how the High Command took my daddy from me," then you're not a real man.

Shows are at 10 p.m. tonight and Saturday and 8 p.m. Monday. Cost is $10. Get there early because they'll probably sell out.
