We are very pleased to announce that our entire 90-minute performance from 2011's Rites of Spring Festival in Gettysburg, PA will be included as a FREE BONUS with the first 2000 copies of "Trouble With Machines". Release is scheduled for July 17th, and we'll have pre-order info soon so you can be sure to nab one of these first 2000.

Awhile back, we asked fans for questions on our Facebook page, and we finally got a chance to answer them last Thursday night at our Louisville hotel. We had a pretty good time :-)
Here's some behind the scene footage of us tracking guitar/goofing around in the studio. Check out/subscribe to our Youtube page for more
Check out our Bio page for the thoughts of Bill Bruford, John Wetton, Roine Stolt and other incredible individuals on District 97. Bill Bruford (Yes, King Crimson, Genesis etc.): I love the CD...the sheer skill and gusto with which they tackle it makes you laugh out loud. Great drumming. Jonathan plays and writes like a demon. Congratulations to them. (Bill and Jonathan, both Paiste Cymbals artists, had a chance to jam out together last December in Memphis, TN)
Jonathan, a Paiste Cymbals artist, shows off some of his wares at the Memphis Drum Shop by playing along to some D97 cuts.
Apparently we have an absolutely HUGE fan. Post a video on Youtube of one our songs if you think you can do better!
Leslie talks more about the download/promo on Bandcamp and reminisces a bit about our CalProg experience.
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"
