King Crimson Holds Court: Robert Fripp of English prog-rock titans King Crimson has been keeping busy in lockdown. He’s been recording Youtube videos of himself performing various cover tunes with his wife, Toyah Wilcox, and they’ve been hella fun. But he’s back to business now, on tour with his band and preparing to bring the Court of the Crimson King to the Greek Theatre.

What a bill it is too; a handful of Frank Zappa alum will perform as the Zappa Band. Side note — we don’t know which of the non-Frank bands is the best (the Grandmothers of Invention and Zappa Plays Zappa might have a shout), but we’ll be keeping a close eye on the Zappa Band. Suzy Creamcheese will be there in spirit.

Also performing is the California Guitar Trio (friends of Crimson), so get there early.

King Crimson Holds Court: The event takes place at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, August 6 at the Greek Theatre.
