From the press release:

Second Seaprog festival to showcase regional and international progressive/art rock

www..orgseaprogfest

The second annual Seaprog festival of progressive/art rock will take place Saturday-Sunday June 21-22 at the historic Columbia City Theater, with a free kickoff event on Friday, June 20 at the Royal Room. Tickets are now on sale at http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/588202.

Organized by Seattle musicians, Seaprog’s focus is on progressive music of the here and now rather than the florid “prog” stylings of yore. Following last year's highly successful debut, the 2014 festival will present more than a dozen remarkable bands whose diversity of approach illustrates just how far progressive rock has evolved since its origins in the 1960s. Seaprog's emphasis is on the resurgent Northwest progressive music scene, augmented by some of the top creative bands active in the more adventurous reaches of the genre today. Confirmed artists include Quebec’s legendary avant-rock unit Miriodor, Seattle space-rock sensation Midday Veil, "Zeuhl" practitioners Corima (Los Angeles), The Mercury Tree (Portland), Fang Chia (Tacoma), and Seattle bands Zubatto Syndicate, Being John McLaughlin, Spacebag, Autumn Electric, Badwater Fire Company, and Spontaneous Rex, with additional smaller acts between the main sets.

Conceived as a destination event rather than just another gig, Seaprog invites listeners to spend a weekend enjoying stimulating and intelligent music and visiting the many fine restaurants, bars, and shops in Columbia City.
