Dream Theater are perfect antidote to overexposure to loose three-minute power-pop songs. It was over a hundred degrees this Saturday night during their performance at the Greek Theatre, and the burning hills provided smoke before the band even hit the stage, but that didn’t stop these progressive metal extremists from hitting an insane amount of notes over the course of their two-hour-plus set. They opened with a 17-minute version of ‘A Nightmare to Remember’ and that wasn’t their even their longest song for the evening. Not even close.

Headlining that night was The Entrance Band. Not missing a beat, their set seemed to explode from the moment the members took the stage, with a fierce combination of psychedelic, blues, and rock—it almost feels like a martian attack on your soul, especially as Guy Blakeslee’s vocals reach their coda, like watching the sky opens up for the birth and death of an actual star.
