Dream Theater News

Come June 23, I know what I will be picking up, my copy of Dream Theater's 10th studio album, Black Clouds and Silver Linings.  In addition to the standard CD version, Dream Theater will also release a vinyl LP and 3 disc special edition CD (one CD of instrumental mixes of the album and one with six covers).

Additionally, Dream Theater will headline the Progressive Nation Tour.  The bill is better for the European edition (Bigelf will be with them for one thing), but the U.S. line up is nothing to dismiss.  I am currently checking out Beardfish (watch for a review soon) and have been very  impressed.

Beatles MA

Liverpool Hope University is now offering a Master of Arts degree in "The Beatles, Popular Music and Society."  So for those of you who always thought it would be interesting to take that history of rock n' roll at the local jr. college, here is your chance to hop the pond and really dig in.
