It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of The Fabulous Armadillos. I’ve written extensively on the majesty of their Pink Floyd tribute show (which, sadly, they won’t be doing again until 2019.)

When I was attending Townsquare Media’s Christmas party about 6 months ago I passed a tall, middle aged figure with long hair as I was bringing some drinks back to my table. I knew the guy’s face from a mile away. He was one of the vocalists of The Armadillos. Of course, I had to run up to him and say hello.

I was fan-boying pretty hard. He crushed my hopes and dreams when he told me they wouldn’t be performing their annual Pink Floyd show this year, but lifted my spirits again when he said they would be performing a new show this year at the Paramount Theatre. “What's Going On?” is a tribute to artists of the 60s and 70s who wrote perspective changing songs regarding the Vietnam War.

You can get your tickets online now for $32 and they will be putting on 4 shows between October 4th and the 6th. If you haven’t seen the Armadillos yet, I definitely recommend checking them out. They are without a doubt the most talented band around St. Cloud.
