Progressive Nation Tour 2008


I had the joy of attending the Progressive Nation Tour last night at the WaMu Theater, featuring the likes of Three, Between the Buried and Me, Opeth and Dream Theater.

Since I just had a rather long and detailed post eaten alive by Firefox, I’ll just say this –

The four bands on this tour are relentlessly talented and amazing performers, especially Dream Theater. Some may relegate the band to the likes of elitist prog-metal for 30-year-old geeks who still play Dungeons & Dragons, but they’re arguably the most talented act in the business today.

And after 20+ years of writing music, last night’s show was more than proof that they’re still capable of making my jaw hit the floor 12 times in one night. (Did I mention this was my 10th time seeing them live?)

Incredible show for those who had the good fortune of catching it, and for those who didn’t, there’s a crappy-quality cellphone picture for you to look at. No picture would’ve done any of it justice anyway.
