Brit Floy

Back in 2015, legendary Pink Floyd covers act Brit Floyd embarked on a massive world tour called Space and Time that clocked in a whopping 146 gigs and sold well over 1 million tickets. Rightfully hanging onto such incredible momentum, Brit Floyd will continue its amazing journey through fifty years of Pink Floyd with another whopper of a tour called Space and Time CONTINUUM which will include a two-leg, 76-date North American trot. The first leg of the tour touches down at the Beacon Theater on Friday April 8. Tickets are on sale now but if you'd like to go for free, we are giving away a pair. Enter to win below.

Other tri-state area appearances include Saturday April 9 at the Oakdale in Wallingford, CT, Monday April 18 at the State Theater in New Brunswick, NJ, Friday April 22 at the Borgata in Atlantic City, and Sunday April 24 at the Paramount in Huntington Long Island.

For CONTINUUM, Brit Floyd are pulling out all the stops and will be delivering a Pink Floyd experience for the ages. Not only are they presenting fans with a re-tooled setlist that includes Pink Floyd's epic Echoes in it's entirety, they've also invested over a million dollars into a revamped lighting and video design set-up that is sure to leave our minds dripping from the ceiling. Also of note is the fact that Pink Floyd's David Gilmour begins a three-night string of NYC dates on the Sunday immediately following Brit Floyd's Beacon Theater show. Can we expect a cameo?

Mugstar

British space rockers Mugstar have been going strong since the early aughts, with a large handful of releases including splits with Mudhoney and Oneida, and the last-ever recorded Peel Session. They've signed to Mogwai's Rock Action Records for their upcoming double album, Magnetic Seasons, which is due out March 4 (pre-order). We're premiering the video for its new single "Flemish Weave," which kicks off as an atmospheric instrumental jam but eventually turns into driving krautrock.
