Riverside was one of two repeat bands at NEARfest 2010, playing the first ever “Alumni Friday” pre-festival show (past Friday night showcases have featured fusion bands, the first PFM NEARfest performance, Proto-Kaw, The Musical Box, and other bands).
Rocket Scientists - Live at CalProg, Whittier, CA, 2006 Review by Lorraine Kay CalProg 2006 was a full day of great prog-rock from across the country and the UK. Held in the Whittier Community Center, in Whittier, CA, a small community in Los Angeles County, there is always a family-friendly atmosphere in the 400 seat facility.
RPWL - Live at RoSfest 2008 Review by Josh Turner Fans typically groan when a festival – a vehicle used to introduce new material to wanton ears - brings back an artist. No matter, RPWL deserved to be there.
Rush - Live in Milwaukee, WI, June 13, 1997 Review by G. W. Hill Realizing that many do not consider Rush to be a progressive band, I should preface this by saying that I feel that there are periods of Rush music that certainly qualify as progressive. Since they were performing two of the epics from that period on this tour, I felt that this review qualifies as progressive rock.
