Our new CD "Trouble With Machines" is in the mixing stages, and Mr. John Wetton seems pretty excited about it! Here's what he had to say on his website about his contribution to it: Fans of this ' ere website, Chicago's District 97, and prog music in general will be delighted to hear D97's new album is at mixing stage---I just received a first mix from Jonathan this morning. My tenor is a foil to Leslie's innocent in TPYM, a prog/opera extravaganza. I turn out to be an utter cad---far from the perfect young man (the Brit cast as villain again?), I am ghastly.
We are one of 9 bands entered into a contest affiliated with CBS. If we make the top 3 we get to film a documentary w/concert footage (DVD bonus feature?). If we win, we headline a show at Chicago's Metro. Voting is really simple (must be logged onto Facebook). We'd appreciate your mouse-click here. Here's a second contest at Sound and Vision where we could win a ton of gear, voting requires no registration.
First the bad news: James Labrie's US tour is cancelled, therefore we will not be opening for him on 12/7 @ Reggie's. The good news: We DID open for Carl Palmer at Reggie's on 10/27, and had an amazing time. Here's a video shot from the audience of "I Don't Wanna Wait Another Day"
