House of Floyd Live at the Little Fox Theater

House of Floyd , the Pink Floyd tribute band from California, did a live gig at the Little Fox Theater in Redwood City last week.  This was a smaller venue than their show at the Rio Theater in Santa Cruz, so they left some of the lazers --and the inflatable pig --behind.  But the smaller venue means you can get up close and the audience was really into it.  When Mark Showalter started tossing out t-shirts before the big finale, the audience went nuts.

The set list, which is always a closely guarded secret, included many of Pink Floyd's most popular songs as well as older cuts from the Syd Barrett era and more recent songs after Roger Waters' departure. 

  • Welcome to the Machine
  • Another Brick in the Wall #2
  • Empty Spaces
  • Young Lust
  • Have a Cigar
  • Hey You
  • Set the Controls on Stun
  • Keep Talking
  • Learning to Fly
  • One Slip
  • Fearless
  • Wish You Were Here
  • Sheep
  • (Break)
  • Astronomy Domine
  • Arnold Layne
  • Breathe / On the Run
  • Time
  • Great Gig in the Sky
  • Money
  • Us and Them
  • Any Color You Like
  • Brain Damage /  Eclipse
  • Echoes
  • Run Like Hell
  • Comfortably Numb (Encore)

Not only is the music note perfect, but the video montage is amazing and the whole effect is psychadelic, man.  The set list changes every night, so it's definitely a band worth seeing more than once.  I've posted ten videos and a couple dozen photos on YouTube and PicasaWeb though the lighting was a bit dark making the photos grainy.  Standout videos include "Another Brick in the Wall #2," "Brain Damage," "Great Gig in the Sky," "Breathe," and "Hey You."  There are some additional videos and photos from their their previous gig in Santa Cruz.

House of Floyd has upcoming shows in Alameda (June 13), Fairfield (June 14), Sausalito (June 22) and Point Arena (June 28) as well as gigs later on throughout Northern California.  The Sausalito gig is a yacht-board event with limited space.
