ConcertsNEARfest 2004 The Weekend In Review

Posted on Thursday, July 22 2004 @ 00:11:54 CDT by Greg Stewart
Concert Reviews NEARfest Returns to Pennsylvania with a powerful line up, a reunion performance, and a first-ever American performance! NEARfest event attendees once again have been treated to an extremely diverse line-up, and glancing throught the crowd it was apparent that this equally diverse audience were just as dedicated to the music as in years past.

Sea Of Tranquility was there and worked hard to get interviews and photos. Now the SoT Staff Writers share their experience...

NEARfest 2004 Bethlehem, PA.

Friday Nite Pre-Show:

The Musical Box "...there are a few Genesis tribute bands around, but the most prestigious is perhaps The Musical Box from Montreal."

Saturday Line-up:

Yezda Urfa reunites, and kicks off the weekend, "...Featuring 3 of the original 5 members, Yezda Urfa's music hit home with many of the characteristic trademarks that they were known for 25 years ago..."
Pallas "...was one of the pioneers of the British revival of progressive rock in the early '80s..."
Richard Pinhas Saturday's solo set.
Mike Keneally Band "Someone in the audience shouted, 'You're the man, Mike!' and for more than an hour the San Diego-based guitarist demonstrated time and again that exact point. And he didn't even have to try."
Read Jedd Beaudoin's Interview With Mike Keneally!
Univers Zero Celebrating their 30th year, Univers Zero mixed complexity with realism into a powerful and memorable performance.

Sunday Line-up:

Hidria Spacefolk pulls off a great perfomance even when trouble with the airlines almost leaves them without equipment.
Metamorfosi "...after being away from the scene for almost 20 years and regrouping in the 1990's, made a triumphant return..."
Sean Malone Solo bass and Chapman Stick.
Planet X "After the strong applause following their opener, "Moonbabies", all anticipation gently faded...despite playing a flawed and relatively uneven show, the band kept the attention of the nearly-packed house."
The Strawbs "This was the full electric set, and the lineup was the same as on the 1974 Hero And Heroine album."

Hits: 11832
