Visiting Cleveland for the first time, Michigan Pink Floyd tribute The Surrogate Band will put on a marathon two-hour-plus show, covering ground from Piper to The Wall. The five-man, two-woman group plays Floyd classics you'd expect, such as "Comfortably Numb" and "Wish You Were Here," in addition to dusty psychedelic-era nuggets like "Matilda Mother" and "The Nile Song." Says singer-guitarist Alex Gonzalez: "The emphasis with this band is authenticity: instrument tones, vocal phrasing, sound effects, etc., presented live, in front of your eyes."
