The original Pink Floyd video for ‘Another Brick in the Wall.’
At the institution of higher-decibel education known as the School of Rock, there’s a tradition in which students at new outlets in the nationwide chain make their stage debuts by performing the entirety of a single LP, Pink Floyd‘s ‘The Wall.’
And they get to that point not solely by hours of diligent, lonesome practice, but also via hours of jamming together and learning from one another.
This weekend, the Klieg lights will cut the faux fog at two local bar/restaurants for students of the Red Bank branch of the school, which opened on Monmouth Street last July and is still considered a newborn, says general manager Janet Wheeler.
On Friday night, 21 kids aged 12 to 18 will occupy the Walt Street Pub in Red Bank for an early evening performance of the seminal 1979 album at 6 p.m.
They’ll follow that at 2 p.m. the next afternoon at Dive in Sea Bright for an encore show, Wheeler says.
“They’ve been rehearsing this once a week since September,” says Wheeler.
Admission is $10 for all ages.
