Live Through This: rock nyc’s Top Concert Picks For The Week Of April 15th, 2019
We’ve seen Roger Waters numerous times, and David Gilmour more than once, and Syd Barrett -the crazy diamond himself, never and never shall, of course. That leaves Nick Mason, Pink Floyd’s oldest remaining member (if they still existed) and one of the great prog rock drummers. Now is the chance, Nick is headlining the Beacon Theatre on Friday (and Thursday).
