Mid-Week Mayhem news [13 Jul 2009|12:10am]


Most of you are probably aware of this by now, but in case there are those of you who don't know by now...
For those of you going to ProgPower this year, or who are considering going, here's an update on the Wednesday night show.

From Glenn Harveston on the PPUSA forum on Ultimate Metal

Mid-Week Mayhem Show: Roster change
Hello All,

I just received word that due to the time commitments involved with the Stratovarious tour, Pagan's Mind will not be arriving to Atlanta until Friday afternoon.

The acoustic Pagan's Maximus show has been changed as a result. Circus Maximus will now play a full electric set consisting of cover tunes and Circus Maximus songs that will NOT be performed on the main stage on Saturday.

Both Pagan's Mind and I apologize for the change in plans.

And for those of you who still want to go, there are plenty of tickets left for ProgPower, the Thursday night Showcase, and the Wednesday night show.    I'm not sure on the numbers for Wednesday and Thursday, but the ProgPower weekend has 200 left.  So if you don't have your tickets, you can still buy them!  :)

From Glenn.. [18 Jun 2009|01:10pm]

In what is believed to be a metal scene first, the promoter of ProgPower USA is officially inviting the general public to follow the festival’s unique mode of operations. Readers will learn what goes on behind the scenes before, during, and after the festival. Updates will include advance practical preparation such as gear, stage logistics, travel notes, and current negotiations/hints for the 2010
roster. Expect live updates from soundchecks, crew updates from the stage during the show, band reactions as they step off stage, backstage gossip, and a post show commentary. To sign up, please visit:

RIP Raymond Dowdell [24 Mar 2009|09:30am]

For those of you who don't follow the PPUSA forum, I thought I'd share this may not recognize the name, but you'll likely remember the face.

The passing of a PPUSA attendee

Ray was a hell of a nice guy, the music world will miss him.

Mod Shopping [30 Apr 2008|05:19am]

[ mood | busy ]

Greetings, lovelies! I am the creator of this community but I am looking to bring in another moderator! I am often MIA from LJ for extended amounts of time, and when I am here I'm too focused on other responsibilities to handle this by myself.

I have one lovely mod already, jaxita, however I'm looking for someone who can specifically edit the profile information when necessary (it currently needs a make-over) and can make this place active again! If you are interested, please send me a message, or better yet just reply to this post :) If you do send me a message, please include the name of this community because I will be posting this to a few others as well.

Thank you so much for all your participation!

PP UK III [13 Sep 2007|09:09am]

[ mood | contemplative ]

The ProgPower UK III lineup is looking tempting enough that I might have to consider a trip home around then: Vanden Plas, Evergrey, Wolverine, etc. (And Power Quest. Ha.)

Update: Unfortunately Wolverine have pulled out, due to their singer's wife expecting a baby right around when the festival is.
