Young rockers add more bricks to ‘Wall’
Every year, it’s just another brick in “The Wall” for the more than 70 School of Rock locations around the country; it’s become a tradition to open their seasons with a recreation of Pink Floyd’s landmark 1979 album and mammoth stage show.
But this year, Wilmington School of Rock director Eric Svalgård and his new batch of rock warriors will mark the show’s fifth year in Delaware with elaborate staging, sampling and arranging to help bring the album to life.
Get your education at 8 p.m. Saturday at the School of Rock Garage, 484 Century Boulevard, Prices Corner; and at 3:30 p.m. Sunday at World Cafe Live at the Queen, 500 N. Market St., Wilmington.
Tickets $8 in advance and $10 at the door Saturday; $10 at the door only Sunday.
