You probably didn’t see Led Zeppelin live in 1973, and the Piazza, despite all its delusions of grandeur and (telecast) sporting events, is certainly no Madison Square Garden. But for one night we can all indulge in the collective hallucination as the Piazza projects The Song Remains the Same onto the big screen as part of its monthly Rockin’ Reels series. A front-row and behind-the-scenes record of the band’s 1973 MSG stint, the film is a rock and pyrotechnic explosion, full of impressive hair and woozy fantasy sequences (Robert Plant searching for the Holy Grail on horseback?). It’s a trippy time capsule from those heady days when “Stairway to Heaven” was fresh, Plant’s lion’s mane was attractive, and John Bonham had yet to take that infamous vodka breakfast.

Thursday, Aug. 19. 7pm. Free. Piazza at Schmidts, N. Second St. and Germantown Ave. 215.467.4603atthepiazza.com
