    Outworld and Zero Hour headlining, and start slathering all kinds of Texan goodness on the bill.

    Cuz we all know, we need more reasons to travel for vacations! :heh:

    I agree 100% Bryan!!!! Especially since Outworld will now sound better than it ever has with Carlos Zema fronting the band!! ;)

    And of course Stride.

    There are a lotta Houstonians that come to the fest here. I'm very much a fan of this idea. Then again, ProgPower got off the ground because there was a guy with the know-how and dedication to start it off, whereas in Texas...dunno. Not me anyway.

    I am all for that, in fact i would love to organize it, OUTWORLD, STRIDE, MEYVN, FAIR TO MIDLAND, EDENS TWILIGHT and scores of other metal bands from around the state. It would be a pretty awesome show.

    Well one of you Texan yahoos should start workin on this idea! Like, serious work, and set a date far ahead into next year, where all the bands would easily be available.

    Hell... even if it was only on the scale of the Chicago Powerfest, or even just treated like a regular gig but with shitloads of promotion and work behind it, you guys could whip up a helluva party. Is there a centrally-balanced city with a worthy venue? I know that Tejas is freakin huge, so where are most/all of the progpower-worthy bands hailing from?

    Well don't forget that ShokRok relocated down to your state so bash her over the head with a stack of cd's and say "YO! WE NEED TO ROCK!" She could do a helluva job promoting this for ya and collecting band info.

    Yeah, FBI's in Houston is the place where Stride and Outworld generally play their gigs. It's a great venue, as is the Meridian...although, I've heard Meridian's house sound guy is total crap. Perhaps we could bring in a sound guy. I personally know a few good ones.

    I seriously need to get my band to record our album already. I don't want to get left out! lol

    I'm putting in my vote for The Curtain Club or Galaxy Club in Deep Ellum.
    That place could use a big metal fest!

    Of course I'm up for it! I had a blast working on MADFEST 2006, and will certainly be doing that again in 2007, but I'd also love to work on something here in TX! Let's call it the Texas Shred Fest! :cool:

    p.s. Sorry I had to ignore your call John.. the office line rang at the exact same second! LOL!

    How big is FBI's? What's their patron capacity? Would this work as a one night/day festival, or should it be done over two nights? You gotta consider, you'll want each band to have more than the usual bar-night 30-minute set. How many bands would be reasonable?
