Ya DID have to be there! August 23, 2008
Written by dacope
For my 18 year old son and me, this concert was a culmination of our pursuit of the Crimson King. This past year, we saw Pat with TU opening for Tool, Gavin with Porcupine Tree, Ade with his Power Trio (man, would I love to hear a whole show of them doing KC songs -- they ROCK!), and Tony with Liquid Tension Experiment. We even saw Fripp progeny California Guitar Trio. All that was left was to see the man behind the curtain, er, stack -- That Annoying Man Fripp.
Yeah, this show has a few warts but it was still a great show nonetheless. KC music is always powerful and challenging and to hear it in a small venue with others who obviously appreciate it is a tremendous experience. Chatting with Luis from Venezuela and Bill from Salt Lake City about all sorts of music and meeting Sister Fripp was a great part of the concert experience. And anyone who has kids can tell you that being able to share and enjoy a special time like this with your children is one the best things about being a parent. My son and I traveled from Seattle for this show -- we had never been to Chicago and we had a blast!
And thanks to DGM, now we have a wonderful momento.

I saw them twice at the Nokia (14th and 16th) and they were tighter then. They are still a little rough at the edges in this gig.

Compared to the show I saw on the 16th at the Nokia, this pales by comparison. Not as powerful, and the drums seem pushed far to the back. The level of intensity isnít the Read more

I procrastinated on purchasing a ticket for this show, and it sold out. Then went through the hell of finding 2 tickets, only for them to not arrive. Through fortunate coincidence I was still able to go, and this show Read more
