News:
Detroit's Echoes of Pink Floyd doing a solid for ailing local youth

The local tribute band Echoes of Pink Floyd's home town show this weekend is special in a number of ways.

The Saturday, Sept. 27, performance at Detroit's Majestic Theatre is, for starters, a benefit for Musician Friends of Porter, a trust fund established to assist Porter Lorien Creasman, an autistic youth in Redford whose late father Brandon Creasman was a Detroit musician.

The show will also mark the Detroit debut of the EOPF's latest lineup as well as a performance of Pink Floyd's 1977 album "Animals" in its entirety. Outside the Majestic, meanwhile, Illuminatus will present a special laser light show as part of the D-lectricity event taking place in the Cultural Center.

The concert coincides with a new, 12-minute "Echoes of Pink Floyd" documentary posted on YouTube. The film is the work of Nick Kim, a student at Wayne State University. Kim traveled with the group around Michigan and Ohio, filming the shows and talking to the band members.

The Majestic is located at 4140 Woodward Ave., Detroit. Doors open at 7 p.m. with the Dirty Basement Band opening. Tickets are $20 in advance, $25 at the door. Call 313-833-9700 or visit www.majesticdetroit.com.
