Artemidorus: A Pink Floyd Experience
Elaine Eagle, Kris Lahd and Durga McBroom discuss how a tribute act pays proper tribute
Members of the Pink Floyd tribute act Artemidorus joined E.J. Iannelli in the KPBX studio to chat about their concert tomorrow evening in Spokane. They'll be performing the albums Dark Side of the Moon and Wish You Were Here in their entirety.
Artemidorus founder, singer and guitarist Kris Lahd, singer Durga McBroom and vocalist/pianist Elaine Eagle talked about how they first discovered Pink Floyd's music, how their mutual involvement came about and how a tribute act like theirs respects the music by not simply mimicking it.
McBroom's appreciation for Pink Floyd stems from direct experience with the David Gilmour-led band. In addition to scoring multiple pop hits with her band Blue Pearl in the early 1990s, she toured with and recorded on Pink Floyd’s Delicate Sounds of Thunder, Division Bell, Pulse and The Endless River.
The musicians also offered detail on the concert's light show and the origins of the band's oft-mispronounced name.
Following the interview, the trio performed "Wish You Were Here" from Pink Floyd's 1975 album of the same name live in the SPR performance space.
Artemidorus: A Pink Floyd Experience plays tomorrow (Thursday, March 23) at the Bing Crosby Theater in downtown Spokane.
Tickets and more information are available at the Bing Crosby Theater's website or by visiting the band’s website.
