Echolyn - Live at NEARfest, 2002 Review by Stephen Ellis I've tried very hard to like this band. And to their credit they put on a very good show at NEARFest 2K2. They played the songs I had anticipated they would play -pretty much the best selections from Suffocating the Bloom, As the World, and Cowboy Poems Free.
Enchant - Live at NEARfest, 2002 Review by Stephen Ellis When Enchant was first announced as part of the NEARfest list of bands I was very excited, as I have been following them by their CD's since they first came out on Magna Carta.
It’s hard to believe that a non-headliner would end up being the most talked about band at a festival, but the fact of the matter is that quite often bands come out of nowhere for a good number of festival attendees, and it’s usually bands that are on the undercard.
