    Hey guys! Just wanted to share this music vid that my instrumental prog band Earth's Yellow Sun just released. It's a cover of Rush's Overture 2112/The Temples of syrinx featuring Rody Walker from Protest the Hero singing Geddy's vocals on Syrinx. Hope y'all dig it. The video is a big love...

    Had great seats. Dead center on the first balcony. Better vantage point than the people on the floor underneath me. Sound wasn't the greatest for vocals. Guitars were pretty loud my ears are ringing.Surprising bbecause for satriani my ears were fine. Show was three hours forty five minutes...

    Went to see Joe. I haven't been to a concert of his since the Extremist tour and to be honest that was probably the last album of his that I listened to from beginning to end multiple times. I have to say it was a pretty good show. He always tours with talented musicians and this time around...

    Check out the cosmo music website. On April 11th they are giving out 100 free tickets for a meet and greet and pic with JP on Apr 16th in the afternoon (same day as the Dream Theatre concert). Then in June they have their annual festival..... trade reps, live bands, and musicians. Think the...

    Wow. Waiting for fifteen minute intermission. I am 11 o'clock from the corner of the stage and the sound quality is still amazing. Man the guy is a machine he never hits a bad bend. High hopes was amazing! Wish you were here was the third or fourth song. New solo stuff is not bad. Very laid...

    BarDown: Toronto Maple Leafs ranked worst sports franchise in North America "Let's get right into it, out of 122 franchises in North America, the Toronto Maple Leafs finished DEAD LAST! Not the Astros, not the Coyotes, not the Bucks, not the Jaguars, the Toronto Maple Leafs! Yes, that's right...

    Edit: note that this is December 9th, not September 12th, so this is Jason Newstead on bass, only a few months into him joining the band.

    Well I posted a while back on what to expect. Background: I told a friend I was interested in getting back into metal so he recommended I gave this show a try. At the ticket price I couldn't complain as I have become desensitized to arena prices. I'm more of a Megadeth/Metallica kind of guy...

    ....what did I get myself into? I've been itching to explore post 90s metal and my friend recommended I check these guys out. AT $40 it was hard to say no. What advice do you have for appreciating a concert for a band for whom all you know is what you've seen on youtube and read about on...

    So, I grabbed my ticket for this show, can't miss out on this one. It'll be about a year since I last saw Periphery, and now I'm a huge Fair To Midland fan, so I can't miss them (since apparently I missed them and Karnivool last spring :( ). Anyone else going and want to meet up? I know...

    Go see this show :yesway: This is on Thursday, just to clarify :lol: Login | Facebook (on some songs, the singer plays guitar too, and on others, the singer plays bass and the bassist plays guitar, and he's as good as the main guitarist, and they love to trade leads :yesway: )

    Whoa... it's Steve Vai's evil twin! And is that a Fractal MFC-101 i see on his pedalboard?

    I'm psyched. Heading downtown to see this this weekend. I don't get to a lot of shows these days (I try to never miss Opeth when they come through though) but I couldn't pass this one up. Usually when I head to Opeth I go alone as nobody in my circle of friends/co-workers has even heard of...

    Just recently found this forum. Looks like a cool place to hang out. Between this and sevenstring.org I should be good. I'm an older metalhead, around 40. Grew up with Maiden, Metallica, Slayer etc. and still love the heavy stuff. Love the old heavy stuff (What I grew up with) as well as...

    Alright, so just got back home from Toronto, and I must say, this was a top-5 (maybe even top-3) show for me. Incredible show, Porcupine Tree played for just under 2.5 hours, and at $35 a ticket, that's fucking awesome. The opening act was Bigelf. I really liked their set. Very much a 70s...

    Anyone going? I'm probably going and meeting up with a buddy who lives in TO now. Porcupine Tree tickets Sound Academy Toronto, ON, Directions, seating chart. Official Ticketmaster site.
