Boston looks like it may have something to do with the Salem Witch Trials based on a video tease they released yesterday.
Baripwn Jan '17
jgriff17 do you mean the Blair Witch Project?
jgriff17 Jan '17
No, I mean the Salem Witch Trials...
jgriff17 Jan '17
The witch trials took place in Salem, MA which is relatively near Boston
Matthew Allan Feb '17
I can't provide a direct link to it, but the Blue Stars have announced their show, "Star Crossed." It's just the top headline on their page.

Baripwn Feb '17
jgriff17 I know what the witch trials were, their video just reminded me of the Blair Witch Project

Mandarins 2017 - Inside the Ink

Must be a spin on BD's 2015 show :P

edit: oops, I said "outside" instead of "inside." It's fixed now.
LKendrick captainMar '17
Listening to their description it sounds VERY cool actually, it's using the Rosarch Ink Blot tests (look at the ink blot and tell the psychiatrist what you see thing) as the theme basis, they said they're going to have sanity versus insanity going on the whole time.
LKendrick captainApr '17
Yes, let's keep this at announced shows please and thank you.

Madison Scouts: The Last Man Standing
Matthew Allan Apr '17
The Cadets will be performing Bernstein's Mass this summer:

(show title still unknown)
royalDM May '17
By watching a few performances from Mass I definitely think cadets will be taking a biblical stance this year and I love it. I really hope George does more of a "Gods dead/Gods not dead" (Think Pride of Cincinnati 2012) sort of show with this music. I've got this urge to see a corps do something really controversial and I can see cadets doing that.
Matthew Allan May '17
Blue Knights: i

Is it a show about imaginary numbers? xp
