Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon is getting a lot of attention lately. The Flaming Lips performed the entire record in the studio and onstage, some guy recreated the whole thing using only sounds from a Nintendo video-game system, and a few folks in London used lumber and lasers to build a large-scale model of the iconic cover on top of a mountain. “It’s very cool that there are all these different takes on the album,” says Eroc Sosinski, frontman of our region’s finest Pink Floyd tribute band, Wish You Were Here. “It’s been a classic for so many years now, people are able to put their own spin on it. It’s a testament to the strength of the songs that it can work in all these different mediums and genres. But in the end, there’s nothing like the classic.” The band will play all of Dark Side (and Animals) as part of Sandusky’s Bike Week festivities at 8 p.m. at the Erie County Fairgrounds. Tickets: $10.. —Matthew Wilkening
