Roger Waters Friday, May 11, 2012 AT&T Park Better than: Every previous Pink Floyd-related tour. No, really. Apparently those epic theatrical extravaganzas mounted by Pink Floyd in the 1970s and '80s -- with their massive film projections and towering…

S.F.'s Girls Issue a Gorgeous Old-School Epic

There is something timeless and vital in the two full-length records that San Francisco's Girls have released in the last three years. In an era of indie music dominated by irony (see the nostalgic nonchalance of chillwave) and willful obscurity…

How to Listen to Pink Floyd While Getting High (Hint: Don't Bother with 'Dark Side of the Moon')

Hear this while high: Pink Floyd's Meddle. Why?: Pink Floyd is the canonical druggie rock band, and most beginning stoners need a little basic out-of-body orientation. That Floyd's early music is the platinum kush standard for progressive rock is doubted…

In the Rough

Club preview: James Holden

Somewhere within the echoing pings of Pink Floyd and the insistent percussive rounds of Cluster sits inspiration for the U.K.'s James Holden. Holden, however, is not a member of a space-rock collaboration or a Krautrock collective. He's a progressive DJ…
