The Polka Floyd Show Staff Pick

When: Sat., Dec. 28, 8 p.m. 2019
Price: $12-$14
Have you ever wondered what Pink Floyd songs might sound like with a hell of a lot more accordion? Likely not, but lucky for you, metro Detroit/Toledo outfit the Polka Floyd Show has been shooting prog-rock classics through a polka-fied cannon and, as you might have guessed, transform hits like “Comfortably Numb” and “Mother” into fast-paced party jams you can Krakowiak to. Established in 2006, the five-piece has taken on more than 40 Pink Floyd hits, spanning 1968-1979, injecting high-energy beer-slamming and foot-stomping into songs that normally would be fit to inspire an anti-capitalist rebellion or, like, burning effigies of corrupt leaders. Joining the Polka Floyd Show are Detroit rock band Burning Things and garage punks the Strains.
