King Crimson

I caught King Crimson at the Berklee Performance Center last night. What a show! They played for almost two hours including about six encores. What was most surprising was the audience: people in the crowd (many Berklee students, I presume) were very much interested in the instruments, sound equipment, and techniques. Between songs there was an 'appropriate' amount of applause, dying down to an absolute silence - not unlike a symphony performance. The venue was amazing. I was directly behind a rather large soundboard so I had to sit on the edge of my seat to see everything, but I was pretty much in the front row of the Mezzanine and no more than 50 feet from the stage. I think it was the first concert I've been to in my life that someone didn't fire up a joint. Of course, I'm sure everyone took care of that before they came to the show...
