ECSP #13
Press Release - Update 3

Present at the Full Moon Saloon


FREMONT, CA (May 11, 1998) This our last reminder for our first 1998 show this Friday night. Don't miss your only chance to see European gothic progressive legends, PRESENT in the San Francisco Bay area this year. For those of you unfamiliar with the band, they are an offshoot of the critically acclaimed RIO band, UNIVERSE ZERO. PRESENT has been described as a dark "blend between KING CRIMSON and UNIVERS ZERO; splendid horror with incredible depth and power."

ECSP has been tracking the band closely on their first American tour. The Belgian quintet has been enthusiastically received at each of their first shows. So far they have performed 3 concerts in Maryland, Virginia and Georgia. You can also find some more info about the bands at their own website: or in the Cuneiform Artists section of the Cuneiform label website.

Also, we've included a set list from the first American show at the end of this email as a spoiler, if you don't want to read it you can skip over the information before reading.
