I will be seeing them in Philadelphia on the 31st. I'm really looking forward to seeing Cynic and BTBM.

I'm not familiar with Devin Townsend and Scale the Summit (I attended the ProgNation show in Philadelphia back in July but I missed their set)

I just returned from the show in Houston at the Meridian and it was FANTASTIC!! First off, Devin is even better after a 3 year hiatus than he was before, not even the plague of sound difficulties stopped him and the band from performing to the utmost. I was able to meet the drummer RVP and HevyDevy himself after the show - both class acts and truly appreciative of their fans.

Cynic was intense. They performed flawlessly and have such depth with their clean and heavy vocals. I was always thrown off by the synthesized vocals on "Focus" - and probably the Morrisound production for that matter - but live it works.

This is a killer lineup, I've already made plans with my friend who lives close to the venue that we're going to see it. He's not a fan of metal with harsh singing, but he wants to expand his mind and this will be killer!

I would much rather just see BTBAM play alone for 2 hours, maybe with Cynic opening. Scale the Summit is boring and I don't care for Devin Townsend. I wonder how much time BTBAM gets. I'd love to drive to San Fran to see them again.

This is a hard decision for me, because I'm really wanting to see Cynic and Devy more than the others. I saw StS on ProgNation and they're technically amazing, but a little boring. Like one other person said, I've tried very hard to get into BtBaM and I just can't. I don't like hardcore or metalcore and even though I recognize that they're really talented, it's just not the style I like.
 
Only 30 minutes of Devy...travelling 6 hours to Louisville or Chicago from St. Louis...we'll see. If they came here I'd be all over it.
Current Listening:

Heater valve kicking on.
Snotty noses being blown.
Griping.
Maybe cookies coming out of the oven???

C is for cookie, and it is good enough for me.

David (birdwithteeth) is overly ecstatic for this; he asked me to go, but I'm still not too wild about it and leaning towards no.

I despise BTBAM with a passion (and yes, I've tried so many times you wouldn't believe it). I love Devy. Cynic and StS are meh. Consequently, I'm a bit torn.

I can't believe Devin Townsend is coming to New Orleans, never even thought he'd come close.  I was planning on having to drive at least to Houston to see him.  This is almost too good to be true.

Yeah so this will pretty much be the best tour ever and I don't even like DT. January will be awesome.
