Cygnus and the Sea MonstersLast month I reported that Dream Theater drummer, Mike Portnoy, had announced that his Rush tribute band Cygnus and the Sea Monsters would soon be releasing a live CD/DVD of its one-off performance from September of last year in Chicago. And, as promised, it has been released and is available for order through his website here for the CD and here for the DVD. The performance was recorded at a special drumming event to commemorate The Drum Pad's (the largest drum retailer in America) 20th anniversary on September 18, 2005 at The Vic Theatre in Chicago, Illinois. Cygnus and the Sea Monsters consists of Mike Portnoy on drums, Paul Gilbert on guitar, Sean Malone on bass and Jason McMaster on vocals. The tracklist is as follows:

1. 2112
2. Cygnus X-1
3. Hemispheres
4. YYZ / Drum Solo

The DVD contains audio commentary from Mike Portnoy and Paul Gilbert.
