Contributing to and collaborating with numerous bands of varying genres, including fantasy prog metalheads Dream Theater, black-gone-prog metal band Opeth and controversial Israeli artist Aviv Geffen, multi-instrumentalist Steven Wilson has a sprawling catalog of prog music that’s impressive as hell.

Probably best known as frontman for English rock band Porcupine Tree, Wilson has been nominated for four Grammys on top of being named one of the 15 best progressive rock guitarists through the years by Guitar World magazine. He also landed at number 7 as best prog guitarist of 2016 in a MusicRadar readers’ poll. This Friday, the prog god will head to the Alamo City to shred our faces just in time for Christmas.

$35, Fri Dec. 21, 7pm, Aztec Theatre, 104 N. St. Mary’s St.
