Paradigm Pink Floyd this Halloween!

Louisville Favorites Join Forces with Some of the City's Finest Musicians to Present the Music of Pink Floyd

This Halloween, Friday, October 31st, the Louisville-based post-jazz ensemble Paradigm will be donning a "musical costume" for their performance at Headliners Music Hall. The theme: Pink Floyd. A number of special guests will be joining the group throughout the night, including Teneia Sanders, Jamie Barnes, Daphne Luster, and Dave Chandler (Arnett Hollow, Zongo). Tickets for this 18-plus event will be available for $10 at Ear X-Tacy Records and ticketweb.com, and at the door for $13 on the night of the show. The concert will begin with a set by Paradigm at 10pm (doors open at 9), with the Pink Floyd presentation to follow shortly after.

Concert-goers are encouraged to sport their best and most creative Halloween threads, as a $150 cash prize will be awarded to the person who receives the most audience votes for Best Costume. Visual stimulation will also include video art by Louisville artists Aron Conaway and Hallie Jones, collectively known as Shoot the Messenger.

Paradigm previously hosted a Halloween show featuring the music of Radiohead, about which Paradigm keyboardist Brian Healey says, "It's almost two years later, and we still get positive feedback about that show." Healey adds, "Halloween is about having fun, and, for one night of the year, being anything or anyone you want. For us, a musical costume is the perfect way to step outside ourselves and join in the Halloween spirit. This year, we're looking forward to being able to share the party with some of our friends that we respect artistically as well as personally. We'll definitely be having just as much fun as the audience."

Paradigm blends modern jazz exploration with the raw power and sonic possibilities of post-rock. For the past year, the group has been supporting their 2008 Ropeadope Records release Melodies for Uncertain Robots with nationwide touring.
