Last Night: Crimson ProjeKct at Warehouse Live

Crimson ProjeKct Warehouse Live July 8, 2012

Let's get one thing straight from the very beginning: King Crimson, by any other name, is still King Crimson. This requires an understanding of the nature of the band, which fans have come to learn over the years. King Crimson is a living, breathing entity with no specifically static lineup and many, many off-shoots called ProjeKcts.

So when I tell people who I saw at Warehouse Live on Sunday night, I will automatically say King Crimson, albeit with a tiny asterisk beside the name.

That being said, this isn't your granddaddy's King Crimson. It's actually closer to your daddy's King Crimson. The erstwhile founder and only continuous member, guitarist Robert Fripp, is off in England somewhere enjoying retirement, and you won't find Greg Lake making any appearances.
