I saw nine bands at ProgDay XIX/2013 Labor Day weekend. Here's a few photos of a few of the bands.

A really even-toned set of bands, all great stuff.

Friday
Rob Martino (Chapman Stick), Local 506 Friday

Note: website has not been updated to reflect the actual playing order that happened.

Saturday
Mavara (Iran) - Solid.
Miriodor (Canada)
Corima (US) - Like Magma.
Oblivion Sun (US)

Sunday
Out Of The Beardspace (US)
Thank You Scientist (US)
Herd Of Instinct (US)
simakDialog (Indonesia) - Loved this band.

Stupid heavy storm shut down simakDialog after an hour of play, but the day was ahead of schedule and so we got almost a full hour. Went home, watched the creek rise a lot.

The Residents, Carrboro

Saw The Residents last night at Carrboro Arts Center. Good show, until someone in the front row put their bag up on the edge of the stage, on the switch of a multiplug snake cable, and killed the stage power about forty-five minutes into the show. The audience began clapping to keep the tempo and The Residents finished the song they were in the middle of, "Touch Me", acoustically.

I was invited to play Tar Heel Music Festival today as part of a trio. We'll be at Jessee's Coffee in Carrboro from 5pm to 5:45pm. Music from many other bands at the Cave, Local 506, and Nightlight until past midnight. I'm looking forward to Gmish, a local klezmer band, among others.

Also today, the second Illogicon at which some of my friends including [livejournal.com profile] rdansky are invited guests and speakers, and many others are attending is in Cary last night through Sunday. I don't actually have anything in particular I want to ask Tim Powers, although you'd think I would. [livejournal.com profile] maegwynn and I went last night.

First I was sorry to hear that the northeast US progrock festival NearFest is canceled for this year - I hope the event returns in 2012 as I'd like to try and go then. However, for 2011 ProgDay XVII is on schedule for Labor Day weekend in Carrboro NC.

I also noticed that the ProgDay Encore compilation of recordings from early ProgDays is on sale and down to $29 for a seven-CD box set. That's a great deal.

Another compilation I contributed to is having a joint release party this Friday in Carrboro. details within )
