    OMG, I just barfed at the thought. That may cross the line into cruel and unusual but I suspect it would deter all but people who have never "experienced" the "pleasure" of the Center Stage men's room about 6 hours into the day!

    I miss the old days when the place had a bathroom attendant. Nothing like going to the restroom at a metal show and having a well dressed gentleman hand you the paper towel after washing.....

    After so many years of attending this fest, my jaw does not drop very often anymore. It just did. Not that this band is out there, in fact it fits very well, I just didn't expect it!

    Glenn... now that there is the new format for the festival, have you thought about having signing sessions with the bands on days 1 and 2? That would be great in my book.

    Wow, very excited to finally see Spock's Beard. I've been becoming more and more interested in prog rock lately and what kicked it off was hearing Brief Nocturnes and Dreamless Sleep. Super excited about this.

    A band I never expected to ever play this festival. I was fortunate to see them play at RoSFest last year and they put on a great show.

    This is still tough for me, since Day 1 is far more attractive than Day 2 so far.

    I don't know how you fucking keep doing it. I thought my only chance in life to see Spock's Beard was on the Prog Nation at Sea Cruise and it was truly incredible. I can't wait to see them again as I am a long time SB fanboy and they are truly an incredible band live. RYO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! #holyfuckingshit

    The one thing that I did see that was really once in a lifetime was Neal Morse play with SB on the cruise, any chance of lightning striking twice? I will see on future Fridays.

    Bamafan summed it up for me! With the expanded format and the already announced line-up, PP is on an entirely new level of musical ecstasy!

    Interesting - I'm not a fan, but that is almost certainly because I have never really given them a chance. Where is a good place to begin with their catalog? Time to do some homework.
