Second Seaprog Festival to Showcase Regional and International Progressive/art Rock

SeaProg-500x700 The second annual Seaprog festival of progressive/art rock will take place  June 21-22 at the historic Columbia City Theater, with a free kickoff event on Friday, June 20 at the Royal Room.

Tickets are on sale here.

Organized by Seattle musicians, Seaprog’s focus is on progressive music of the here and now. Following last year’s highly successful debut, the 2014 festival will present more than a dozen remarkable bands whose diversity of approach illustrates just how far progressive rock has evolved since its origins in the 1960s. Seaprog’s emphasis is on the resurgent Northwest progressive music scene, augmented by some of the top creative bands active in the more adventurous reaches of the genre today. Confirmed artists include Quebec’s legendary avant-rock unit Miriodor, Seattle space-rock sensation Midday Veil, instrumental juggernaut Corima (Los Angeles), The Mercury Tree (Portland), Fang Chia (Tacoma), and Seattle bands Autumn Electric, Badwater Fire Company, Being John McLaughlin, Spacebag, Spontaneous Rex, and Zubatto Syndicate, with additional smaller acts between the main sets.
