An exploration of generally underappreciated bands on the modern prog/rock/metal scene and some other occasional asides (Stevie Wonder, Smashing Pumpkins, etc.). Bands to be played would likely include Dream Theater, Mastodon, Ghost, and Porcupine Tree.
Castaways and B-Sides

Oh, anything. Most likely music that I’ve been listening to recently or moderately obscure old stuff I like.
