New Year's Eve Shows Revealed! 

TICKETS GO ON SALE WEDNESDAY NOV 24 AT NOON

On New Years Eve weekend, you can refer to us as The Artist Formerly Known As Tributosaurus. 

 

What better way to kiss off 2021, and grind into 2022, than with us at Theater on the Lake as we become Prince. The calendar cooperates perfectly, granting a weekend for 2 shows: NYE Friday night the 31st, and a mega show on Saturday, Jan 1 to welcome in 2022 the right way. 

We somehow will choose the best of his more than 1000 songs, representing as many eras of his mastery as we can. The set list will range from early falsetto sex-fueled freakouts, to huge pop radio hits with The Revolution, with a solid taste of the NPG thrown in too. 

There are so many beautiful ballads, innumerable funky grooves, brilliantly composed vocal harmonies, and roaring guitar parts.  It will be a very large band, with horns, strings, and a big backing vocal section to do it right. 

So come party like it's Nineteen ninety…um…2022…uh…whatever. 

We can't wait.

Our Christmas gift to you is.... 

No one sets a musical mood like Pink Floyd.  Epic, flowing soundscapes lift you louder and higher, then gently caress you back to the ground.  Let’s have that collective aesthetic experience together, shall we?  

Tributosaurus will give you the gift of perfect progressive psychedelia this Christmas as we become Pink Floyd on Wednesday December 8th and Thursday December 9th at Martyrs.  We’ll give Waters/Gilmour/Mason/Barrett/& Wright’s contributions to the rock canon all the loving, mindful detail it deserves. That David Gilmour guitar tone and unmistakable solo style.  Roger Waters’ vision, and sardonic darkness.  Richard Wright’s passionate keyboard explorations.  Nick Mason’s powerful percussive calm.  All of it inspired initially by the beautiful madness of Syd Barrett.  Their collaborations brought together tinges of hard rock, folk, blues, and electronica that ended up defining “space rock.”  And those lyrics; the syllables are melodic in and of themselves. Breathe in the air. Don’t be afraid to care. Float on the steel breeze. You rearrange me ‘til I’m sane.  

The 1st set will be a selection of Floyd favorites from so many great other albums, and the 2nd set will be all of Dark Side of the Moon, in order.  Maybe you could also watch The Wizard Of Oz on your phones. Either way, the satisfaction of reaching “Brain Damage/Eclipse together should be transcendent.   

Come be with us as we become Pink Floyd, to hear and feel and sense some of the greatest music we know.

Tributosaurus Becomes PINK FLOYD
Wednesday Dec 8th AND Thursday Dec 9th - 7PM

The Springsteen Black Wednesday Show is SOLD OUT! 

 

THANKS TO ALL WHO BOUGHT TICKETS - THIS SHOW IS NOW SOLD OUT.

For years, Tributosaurus has celebrated the night before Thanksgiving with one of our very favorite shows - The Boss.  Last year, we were unable to continue this tradition, for obvious reasons, but it’s time to bring it back. We are absolutely giddy with excitement to return this huge extravaganza to you, this year at the Theater on the Lake. 

Springsteen is famous for his live shows, and Tributosaurus will deliver that energy and joy to the crowd on Wednesday, November 24th. We will be visiting the raw early E Street jams, and the more thoughtful introspective Bruce of later years, and everything in between - and there will be some new wrinkles in there for all of you who have come year in and year out to see us do it in the past. 

This is a show for the dyed-in-the-wool Springsteen acolyte, as well as the casual fan - all of what makes him an American Icon is here, and it all rocks.  Horns, strings, multiple guitars and keys, and a few special guests to boot - all in a large and airy state of the art venue that is one of the finest in the city - what could be better? This show always sells out, so don’t wait too long… 

Bringing this show back feels like magic - come and share it with us!
