Brit Floyd

Sun Sentinel Broward Edition - Showtime - South Broward - - MUSIC -

The chal­lenge of pay­ing trib­ute to Pink Floyd is much more than re­peat­ing the notes that form the com­plex canon of rock, clas­si­cal, jazz and opera that howls through “The Dark Side of the Moon,” “Wish You Were Here,” “An­i­mals” and “The Wall.” Pre­ci­sion is just the be­gin­ning. There must be sim­i­lar ded­i­ca­tion to Pink Floyd’s sense of the­ater and the band’s ex­tra­or­di­nary am­bi­tion. To that end, on its Space and Time Con­tin­uum Tour, Brit Floyd takes on “Echoes,” the epic, 23-minute ad­ven­ture that sprawls across the en­tire sec­ond side of the vinyl ver­sion of the 1971 Pink Floyd al­bum “Med­dle.” Given added drama by an­i­ma­tion and video di­rec­tor Bryan Kolup­ski (whose in­flu­ences in­clude Matt Groen­ing, Sal­vador Dali, Gerald Scarfe and Terry Gil­liam), the live ver­sion of “Echoes” is just one ex­am­ple of Brit Floyd’s so­phis­ti­cated abil­ity to stim­u­late as it sim­u­lates on this tour, which has dates stretch­ing into 2017. When: 8 p.m. Wed­nes­day Where: Fill­more Mi­ami Beach, 1700 Wash­ing­ton Ave. Cost: $39.50, $54.50, $75 Con­tact: 305-673-7300 or Fill­
