Progressive Nation 2008 -- Columbus, OH -- May 16th, 2008

Great show overall, and the outdoor portion of the venue (which is where the gig took place) is most likely my new favorite concert venue (seeing Flogging Molly there August 1st, can't wait). Three were awesome as usual and Joey Eppard broke all the fucking strings on his guitar then held it up by them. BTBAM were incredible but got fucked for time. I could have watched them for another hour at least. Opeth were amazing and I'm certainly not complaining when I say this, but Wreath AND Heir Apparent being played kinda made me think they were trying too hard to be "heavy". To Rid the Disease was an awesome surprise, though. Dream Theater were...Dream Theater. It wasn't bad, it wasn't great, whatever. They only played two songs from Images and Words, none from Awake, and none from Scenes from a Memory, so SHITTY setlist choice on their part. The night ended with a trip to the pedestrian side of the fence where the tour buses park to talk to BTBAM and share the fact that I "don't like having a fence between Between the Buried and Me and me." Then Waffle House. Then fall Caesar.
