Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon has sold over 45 million records, reportedly the fifth most selling album of all-time, and is considered to be one of the greatest concept albums ever made. Its lyrical themes deal with conflict, greed, the passage of time, death, and insanity. All of which seem all too relevant in today's world. In celebration of this seminal record, Chicago's own Toy Robots will be taking on the task of performing the album in its entirety, coupled with eye gazing visuals and precise renditions of the legendary album. They'll also be performing additional career-spanning hits to make this one of the best Floyd shows of the summer!
Toy Robots is an original rock band based in Oak Park, IL. The band’s lineup consists of front-man Andy Madden on lead vocals/guitars, Paul Duda on bass/vocals, Stephan Kohnke on drums/vocals and newest edition Tom slater on keys/guitars/vocals. Formed in the spring of 2015, the band has remained a power trio for the bulk of its tenure. Realizing, however, that they could easily add guests in and out of their tight knit lineup, they've performed shows all over the Chicagoland area with guest singers and musicians such as Neal Francis, Teddy Rankin-Parker, Barry Bennett, Raul Parra and even actor Michael Shannon. They've played all sorts of venues from Berwyn's Fitzgerald's and Wire to Chicago's famed Double Door, The House of Blues and The Hideout and just about everything in between. They have independently released two albums, 2016's Is This the Beginning of the End? and 2018's No Mans Land. In November 2018, they were approached by Metropolis' Joe Keefe to perform as the backup band for a night celebrating the music of Bob Dylan and Neil Young, which sparked the conversations of performing a regular tribute show at the theatre in honor of their musical heroes. They have performed the music of one of the greatest power trios, Cream, at Metropolis in July 2019, the music of The Who, including their monumental album Who’s Next in its entirety. Sit back and enjoy one of the hardest working bands from the area!
