The Next Stage Bandwagon Summer Series and Twilight Music present an evening of brass-fueled, swinging music of New Orleans by the Soggy Po’ Boys, on Sunday, October 8 at 3:00 pm at West River Park in Brattleboro, VT.
In 1971, Pink Floyd gave a spectacular concert to an audience of thousands of ghosts in the volcanically ravaged ruins of Pompeii.
Experience one of rock music’s great cult classic films in its full director’s cut version (2003, 91 minutes) in our Sanctuary at 5pm!
After the film, at 7pm you can enjoy a 3-course Pop-up Dinner featuring Pompeii-inspired cuisine by Great Falls Harvest paired with regional wines curated by wine expert Robert Forman.
“It was to be an anti-Woodstock,……above all, there should be the notion of silence, and the images of Pompeii would speak for themselves with the music. It was something that had to stand on its own: the Floyd and the emptiness of the theatre. Maybe, just maybe, it was like they were playing for the ghosts of the dead.” -Director. Adrien Maben
Alone in a stone amphitheater (save for the production crew), the prog-rock gods channel “Echoes,” “Saucerful of Secrets,” “Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun,” and more, captured with slowly circling cameras, totemic framing, and even the occasional split screen.
The directors cut also features interview snippets covering the recording of The Dark Side of the Moon, the state of the music industry, and oysters.
