      The ProgDay Preshow at LOCAL 506 in Chapel Hill on Friday night, September
      2, features the performances of three great bands:
      • FREAK KITCHEN (Sweden): Join the acclaimed progressive-metal band and
      axemaster Mattias "IA" Eklundh as they make their first assault on the US.
      "...genre defying albums that mix old-school heavy metal, prog-rock, jazz,
      blues, pop, and every other style under the sun into the mix. There are two
      things a fan of FK can always depend on...the great and underrated guitar
      playing of Eklundh, who shows a great mastery of his instrument...(and) the
      uncharacteristic lyrical approach to FK's lyrics. The songs themselves
      show hooky melodies and a staccato style of guitar playing that usually leads
      to an incredible solo. Be prepared for uber catchiness."- Maskofgojira,
      Don't Count On It Reviews

      • THE GALACTIC COWBOY ORCHESTRA (US): Describing themselves as DIXIE
      DREGS meets RUSH meets MAHAVISHNU ORCHESTRA...it's jazz-fusion, it's
      proggresive rock, it's southern rock...okay...it’s really bug-eyed bluegrass from
      Zeta Reticuli. "GCO need to be heard, to understand just how high the bar for
      contemporary instrumental music really is in 2011. Fusing together jazz,
      classical, bluegrass, southern rock, Indian ragas, plus their own original
      stylings; this quartet...play with fire, precision and commitment. Their
      brand new release...is simply bursting with individual and collective
      excellence and is a proper showcase for just how talented this group is." - John

      • CAMERON ALLEN TRIO (US): Up-and-coming fusion guitarist Cameron Allen
      and his trio kick off the ProgDay weekend.
