Watch Yes Perform 'I've Seen All Good People' on 35th Anniversary Tour

In the spring of 2004, prog legends Yes hit the road in America to celebrate their 35th anniversary, playing marathon sets that mixed hits with fan favorites from the Seventies and Eighties Nobody knew it at the time, but this would be the last chance to see the band with keyboardist Rick Wakeman and frontman Jon Anderson, as both left the band not long after the tour ended. Either way, cameras were rolling when the tour touched down at the Tsongas Arena in Lowell, Massachusetts, on May 15th, 2004, and the result is Songs From Tsongas - The 35th Anniversary Concert , which comes out September 23rd on Blu-Ray, DVD and CD.

LIVE: King Crimson @ The Egg, 9/9&10/14

Take your own stab at spelling it out, but the opening strains of "21st Century Schizoid Man" sent yet another thrilling shiver through The Egg last Tuesday and Wednesday nights. Another? Well, geez, it was competing with the performance premiere of "One More Red Nightmare" , the barbed art crunch of "Red" and the righteous skronk of "Sailor's Tale" .

In Rotation: Erin Elders of Wedding Dress on Chicago's answer to a young Scott Walker

Screeching Weasel I've spent the past few months working on a Screeching Weasel cover band for Halloween. Being required to learn one or two new Weasel tunes every week means I'm listening to these 90s pop-punk masters more than I have since I was in junior high.

Yes had produced one of the eighties best examples of over the top prog-pop, with the wonderful 90125, but creative differences on the follow-up led to Anderson walking away.

Hearing Through the Turbulence for the first time, listeners can be forgiven for thinking they're hearing a new Emerson, Lake, and Palmer side project. Is that John Anderson singing the lead vocals? No, none of the members of ELP or Yes or fellow travelers like Gentle Giant are involved in the band called Backhand.
