I attended this sold out show last night. And just like not being that familiar with most of Terry Bozzio's material when I saw him here a few weeks back, apart from Adrian's work with Zappa, King Crimson, Bowie, etc., I wasn't that familiar with his work either. Bassist Julie Slick and drummer Tobias Ralph were shit-hot and their playing fit the material like a glove. Adrian's voice was just as strong as it was 30-40 years ago, which was very impressive. And he sure as hell knows how to get as much out of his Parker Fly guitar than anyone. About a third of the concert was comprised of King Crimson tunes - though, most of those were abbreviated. And I know they were playing City Of Tiny Lights at a few shows during this current tour but unfortunately, they didn't last night. This, apart from some of the curtailed KC tunes, was the only other minor disappointment. Though, I still enjoyed it overall.

Minus the short 13 minute intermission, and with both sets combined, the concert was about 97 minutes. Oh...and I saw Andre C helping to set up the equipment beforehand.
