Us + Them

1986.
The year I got my drivers license, my first car ( a yellow Ford Pinto), and the freedom to drive to my hometown’s local music store.
I bought Pink Floyd’s “Dark Side of the Moon” on tape. Back then it was touted as one of the top selling albums of that year, even though it was originally released in 1973.
I popped in into the sound system I’d just installed into my shitty little car, and what I heard blew me away, leaving an ever lasting impression on my world view.

Roger Waters, one of the founding members of the band, is still touring. This time around is the “UsĀ + Them” tour, honoring music from this timeless classic album, as well as new material he has released.
I’m no fan of Trump, but Roger’s anti-Trump sentiment in his new songs was a bit too much, even for me. When he stuck with his classic songs though, his concert was a huge success.
