Progventure Part 9: Green Carnation - Another Night Under The Dam, Åseral, Norway, 31.07.2014

It seems that my Progventure prog searching trips are not only a convenient excuse to travel new places, or more often the only way of seeing bands I like I wouldn't otherwise get to see, but in some cases they are turning out to be events of a fairly unique kind. Another Night Under the Dam - the Green Carnation reunion show at the Åseral dam number 3 in Norway was unique in more ways than one. And it most definitely was special.

Rockstar Mayhem Festival 2014 - Denver, CO - 13 Jul 2014

The annual Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival! Great variety of bands, I always have a blast, it's always fun, the weather is always way too hot and this year's event was almost no exception. Yes, almost no exception; the timing of the festival couldn't be worse and the decision to split the Colorado show into two events didn't help the cause neither.

Amaranthe - American Beauty Car Show, Haapsalu Episcopal Castle, Haapsalu, Estonia, 19.07.2014

Haapsalu is a small and beautiful Estonian resort town by the sea. Each July its quiet is disturbed by an invasion of owners and admirers of the American car industry. Shining cars, roaring engines, burning rubber, cruising, and a drag race on the airfield strip - American Beauty Car Show has got it all. If you're into all that, it's the place to be. Naturally, this also calls for musical entertainment of varied sorts, which somehow managed to grab my attention for the first time with only one name - Amaranthe. Just because I happen to like them.

Klone - Toulouse, 15/10/2010

The Dynamo is a quite new venue here in Toulouse (about 4 months old at the time of the show), and it's a nice one. It can welcome about 300 persons, has a decent sound, is close to the town centre and, a most important detail, boasts a nice selection of beers!
And so we were about to listen to something quite progressive, with Klone touring for their latest opus, and local openers Ethersens.

Ethersens
First show in ages (well, more than one year anyways) for this prog/atmospheric/shoegaze band from Toulouse; they're busy recording their second album but found the time to come and play this evening.

Agalloch - Gothic Theatre, Englewood, USA - 8 Jul 2014

I was out of town two years ago when Agalloch played in Denver the last time, so when I first saw that they were scheduled to play at the Gothic Theatre in Englewood, CO (a suburb of Denver) I was actually rather surprised. Are they really that big? Would the thousand plus capacity venue be largely empty?
