11 days, 11 stages and even some prog bands

Milwaukee’s Summerfest — billed as “the world’s largest music festival” — begins this week, and I must say I’m excited. Plenty of progressive bands — or at least bands with progressive tendencies — can be found on the Summerfest bill this year. (OK, less than a couple dozen in a field of 800 is not “plenty,” but it’s still more than I recall in past years.)

The ‘Rush’ is on

On Tuesday, Rush issued a two-song digital CD single featuring “Caravan” and “BUTB,” both from an upcoming album expected to be released in spring 2011. While the results are decidedly mixed among fans, this nevertheless is cause for celebration.
