I saw King Crimson last night.

Last night my friend Bucky and I ven­tured out to leafy Glen­side to see prog rock mon­sters King Crim­son at the Keswick The­ater. They may not play the clas­sics that near­ly every teenage boy mem­o­rizes while gulp­ing down heap­ing help­ings of Ayn Rand, but it’s pret­ty cool to see Fripp, Belew, and Levin–the guys behind Dis­ci­pline–onstage in full freak­out mode for a sol­id two hours.

The return of the music nerd.

I’m going to see King Crim­son tomor­row night and Radio­head the night after that. If I’m lucky I’ll sneak into the NIN show at the end of the month, mak­ing my back­wards jour­ney through my for­ma­tive musi­cal ner­dom more or less complete.
