I had a great time at Progtoberfest III last year, and I hope to make it to at least one day of this year’s festival.  This time around, I’m especially impressed by the variety of genres represented (including a generous amount of jazz-rock fusion) and the healthy mix of national/international big names (getting Soft Machine is a genuine coup), local favorites and hungry young artists.  See you there?

    Oak!!! I can’t believe they are coming to Chicago! I didn’t think I would ever get a chance to see them live, at least not this early in their career. 2016’s “Lighthouse” was brilliant – my favorite album from 2016. I’ll have to go on a two week fast to save up for a $75 one-day pass for that Friday. Ha.

    Due to technical difficulties with Ticketfly, on sale has been delayed until Tuesday, June 5. The Friday headliner will be The Ultimate Queen Celebration with Marc Martel (until recently, the lead singer for the Brian May & Roger Taylor-approved Queen Extravaganza). Editing the post to reflect these changes!
