    Not every band is to my taste, but I do like having my horizons widened. Like the Geezer, I enjoy the camaraderie as much as the music. Hope there's a food truck or two this year.
    An Ice cream truck popping in during the afternoon would work too..

    ...and on a rainy Thursday!

    Just now watched about five mins of the Metaphonia clip. I agree 100% Book Them please. I would have to think that just might be a potentially good business move.

    I don't remember what year it was, but way back when Peter was running it an ice cream truck did show up one day. I am not sure if he had arranged for that or if the truck just happened into the Story Book Farm property, but that guy did a hell of a business that afternoon.

    I saw them at Progtoberfest year before last and they were one of the big surprises of the festival. Great young band with kind of a jam band / prog vibe. I agree they would be great outdoors at the Farm.

    I've probably said this before but the year the vitamin water people pulled up with Scale The Summit i think, man, cute girls handing out cold water, that was a big hit in my book.

    In anticipation of this year's event, I have recently uploaded to youtube videos I took of four bands from last year's ProgDay:

    iNFiNiAN 3:31 min.
    BUBBLEMATH 42:10 min.
    EPHEMERAL SUN 26:59 min.
    SHYLOCK 1:25:35

    Besides which, is he still performing as "The Steve Hillage Band"? I had the impression he and Miquette are just doing System 7 now.

    I think I read that he (Hillage) is touring Japan with Gong later this year or 2019; Leonardo put it together.

    Sweeet. That was a really, really wonderful day.

    Gong just did a show with Steve Hillage in Oslo a couple of weeks ago. We have four Japanese shows together in Oct/Nov this year and maybe Canada in November too.

    Six bands announced so far, only one non-US. I wonder what the last two announcements will bring?


    RE: a preshow, I see this is scheduled at Cat's Cradle for the Friday night:

    Interstellar Overdrive ~ A Saucerful of Pink Floyd
    A full audio/visual Pink Floyd experience with music spanning the band’s entire history, featuring full album performances of ANIMALS and DARK SIDE OF THE MOON.

    https://www.facebook.com/pages/biz/I...8883249277729/

    Joining us at the Cat's Cradle will be none other than Prog Day alumni, Jimmy Robinson with a special acoustic opening set.. we would like to encourage you all to swing by Jimmy's page and check out his music.

    https://www.facebook.com/Jimmy-Robin...503925…/


    JIMMY ROBINSON 8:30 to 9:15

    INTERSTELLAR OVERDRIVE 9:30 to 11:45

    I've seen Jimmy once with his band Wooden Head and twice acoustically solo. He's worth the price of admission alone.

    Sure Geez. Friends don't let friends drink Miller Lite.

    I'll show up with some homebrew strawberry wheat beer, New England IPAs, and I'll bring some sours from one of the best microbreweries in Ontario.

    Last night I had a weird dream that I was at a prog festival which was kind of like Progday (as far as the informal atmosphere), but was on some crazy, old-fashioned boat (not a modern cruise ship like CTTE). The idea was that the boat sailed past the bands (which were floating on something? I never got to the part where the music started!). But there was no assigned seating, and all different kinds of seating (benches, tables, etc.), so I was trying to find a good place to sit. But there was a lot of socializing going on before it all started, and also merchandise tables, etc. I didn't actually see anyone that looked familiar, although there were some people who I apparently was supposed to know in the dream.

    Weird! A combination of fun/interesting, and also stressful because of the seating being so strange.

    Maybe it was a Harold Hecuba production?
