Preview: El Monstero @ The Pageant


Just a preview of El Monstero performing at the Pageant – and equally notable, the huge production and setup they crammed  into the venue.

In the above photo, you can get a sense for the kind of production that was thrown down for this Pink Floyd tribute group.

Flat out, this was the biggest stage and rigging I’ve seen at the Pageant. You can see how the band is performing on a square riser that’s built on top of the Pageant’s own stage, and how this big platform extends halfway into the normal pit.

Another cool aspect of this show? Audience seating on the stage behind the band.

More photos coming up soon. In the meantime, check out last year’s extravaganza.
