    Interesting they'd get the Bottom Lounge. That almost seems too large for this bill.

    I hate Fair To Midland and think Scale the Summit is pointless wank, but I do give this tour credit for being diverse and interesting. Great exposure for Periphery too.

    I really want to see Fair to Midland, Dig Them! But they aren't coming through San Francisco or San Jose?? Don't think I'm going to drive to Sacramento on a Sunday...

    But the mighty Rishloo is coming through on their tour later in the month. They are every bit as good as Fair To Midland. They've expanded their tour schedule to included all of Texas

    Can anyone suggest a few songs to check out from Fair to Midland or Periphery? I've seen Scale the Summit once before, but I'm not familiar with the other two bands.

    Agreed. Saw them once before opening for.....someone....and was blown away.

    This tour will be a no-brainer for me; I like all three bands.

    Plus, you have seen Scale the Summit up close and personnel, before they toured with DT and others

    Err, actually, no I didn't. Well, not at Texas Madfest I didn't. :) (Remember, I was hauling someone around in the van.)

    That became the first of three times where Scale the Summit performed and, for some reason or another, I missed 'em. Finally saw them on that tour with BtB&M, Devin Townsend and Cynic, and was completely satisfied.

    Its odd that both your examples are the two songs with arguably the fewest harsh vocals. Don't get me wrong, I like the band (and those two songs in particular), but it doesn't do their music justice overall.

    The other half of the album is filled with stuff like this (so you could expect to hear a few of these songs live as well):
